Early life

Strong was born in Springfield, Illinois, and was raised in Oak Park, Illinois, an inner ring suburb of Chicago.[5] She is the daughter of Penelope and William "Bill" Strong, who worked as an Associated Press bureau chief and is now managing partner at a Chicago public relations firm.[2][5] Strong's parents are divorced.[6] Strong grew up adoring SNL as a child, reenacting sketches with her friend[7] and watching old SNL commercials on VHS. "I had a tape of the best commercials, and I wore it out, every day." She has stated that she was inspired by Phil Hartman.[8]

She attended Oak Park and River Forest High School before transferring for her senior year to the Chicago Academy for the Arts, where she graduated in 2002.[6] She then studied acting at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), graduating in 2006 with a BFA in theatre.[9][10][11] After graduating from CalArts, Strong returned to Chicago, where she studied at the Second City Conservatory and iO Chicago.

Career

Strong performed regularly at The Second City and iO Chicago.[6] Strong has performed on a "cruise ship with fellow Second City members for four months".[12] She appeared at the Chicago Sketch Fest, Chicago Just for Laughs, New York Sketchfest, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival,[10] at the Goodman Theater, Bailiwick Theater, the Mercury Theater, and with the all-female improv troupe Virgin Daiquiri.[13]

Saturday Night Live

Strong debuted as a featured player on Saturday Night Live on September 15, 2012.[10][14][15] Strong co-anchored the recurring Weekend Update segment with Seth Meyers, beginning with the season 39 premiere. Strong later co-anchored with Colin Jost,[16] and was replaced on Weekend Update with writer Michael Che, beginning with the season 40 premiere in September 2014, partly at her own request to focus on doing sketches as a part of the regular cast.[17]

Strong's recurring characters include an extremely ditzy, unintelligent and unnamed pseudo-activist known as "The Girl You Wish You Hadn't Started a Conversation With at a Party" [18]; Dana, a loud-mouthed, unfriendly retail employee who always insults her coworkers out of fear of being fired; Heather, the One-Dimensional Female Character from a Male-Driven Comedy; Kyra from "The Girlfriends Talk Show"; Cathy Anne, the drug-addicted neighbor of Michael Che (usually introduced by Che as "the woman who's always yelling outside my window"), who has strong opinions on current events; an unnamed blond former porn star-turned-model/commercial actress who hawks elegant items; Gemma, a British woman with various boyfriends; and Gracelynn Chisholm, one half of a married duo that hosts a talk show. Her celebrity impressions include Huma Abedin, Brooke Baldwin, Maria Bartiromo, Gloria Borger, Paula Broadwell, Erin Burnett, Marion Cotillard, Stormy Daniels, Lana Del Rey, Fran Drescher, Gloria Estefan, Dianne Feinstein, Carly Fiorina, Ariana Grande, Hope Hicks, Scottie Nell Hughes, Anjelica Huston, Kendall Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, Jill Kelley, Megyn Kelly, Sarah Koenig, Tara Lipinski, Rachel Maddow, Kate Middleton, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Liza Minnelli, Alanis Morissette, Jeanine Pirro, Michelle Rodriguez, Melania Trump, Ivana Trump, Sofia Vergara and Allison Williams.[19]

Other work

Strong was the featured entertainer at the 2015 White House Correspondents' Association dinner (cracking that she was the first straight woman to be so in twenty years).[20] She took digs at the various news organizations in attendance, politicians of all persuasions, and President Obama. She also took shots at the US Secret Service, host location the Washington Hilton, Brian Williams, Sarah Koenig and the state of Indiana.[21]

In 2016, she appeared in a commercial for Old Navy,[22] alongside other SNL cast members Nasim Pedrad and Jay Pharoah. That year, Strong also joined the climate change documentary show Years of Living Dangerously as a celebrity correspondent.[23] In 2016, she guest starred as Samantha Stevens in TBS's Angie Tribeca and Catherine Hobart in FOX's Scream Queens. She appeared in a series of commercials for Triscuit in 2017.

The Female Brain
The Female Brain
Since Dr. Brizendine wrote The Female Brain ten years ago, the response has been overwhelming. This New York Times bestseller has been translated into more than thirty languages, has sold nearly a million copies between editions, and has most recently inspired a romantic comedy starring Whitney Cummings and Sofia Vergara. And its profound scientific understanding of the nature and experience of the female brain continues to guide women as they pass through life stages, to help men better understand the girls and women in their lives, and to illuminate the delicate emotional machinery of a love relationship.Why are women more verbal than men? Why do women remember details of fights that men can’t remember at all? Why do women tend to form deeper bonds with their female friends than men do with their male counterparts? These and other questions have stumped both sexes throughout the ages. Now, pioneering neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine, M.D., brings together the latest findings to show how the unique structure of the female brain determines how women think, what they value, how they communicate, and who they love. While doing research as a medical student at Yale and then as a resident and faculty member at Harvard, Louann Brizendine discovered that almost all of the clinical data in existence on neurology, psychology, and neurobiology focused exclusively on males. In response to the overwhelming need for information on the female mind, Brizendine established the first clinic in the country to study and treat women’s brain function. In The Female Brain, Dr. Brizendine distills all her findings and the latest information from the scientific community in a highly accessible book that educates women about their unique brain/body/behavior. The result: women will come away from this book knowing that they have a lean, mean, communicating machine. Men will develop a serious case of brain envy.

What makes a woman swipe right for Mr. Wrong and left for Mr. Right? This simultaneously entertaining and enlightening comedy is a fresh, witty, and all-too-relatable look at the real-life science behind our (often regrettable) romantic impulses. Writer-director Whitney Cummings (2 Broke Girls) stars as no-nonsense neuroscientist Julia, whose research into the biochemistry of the female brain is illustrated by three couples: newlyweds Zoe (Cecily Strong, Ghostbusters) and Greg (basketball superstar Blake Griffin), whose career troubles seep into their relationship; Lisa (Sofia Vergara, Modern Family) and Steven (Deon Cole Black-ish), who are looking to spice up their stuck-in-a-rut marriage; and Lexi (Lucy Punch, Into The Woods) who can’t help trying to change her boyfriend Adam (James Marsden, Westworld). Meanwhile, the straight-laced Julia’s own synapses start to fire when a handsome new subject (Toby Kebbell, Kong Skull Island) joins her study ...
