Who is Mo Collins?

Born Maureen Ann Collins on the 7th July 1965, in Minneapolis, Minnesota USA, she is an actress and comedian, perhaps still best known to the world for her appearances in the sketch comedy series “Mad TV” from 1998 until 2004. Some of the most popular characters she portrayed include Doreen, the overgrown toddler Stuart’s screechy-voiced mother, and Loraine, a middle-aged woman often confused and annoying people around her, among others.

Mo Collins Wiki: Early Life, Parents, and Education

Mo is the daughter of Winnie Collins; unfortunately, there is no information about her biological father and whether she has any siblings or not. She went to Robbinsdale Armstrong High School, but eventually matriculated from West Charlotte High School. It was during her high school years that she became interested in comedy, when one of her professors took her in his improv class, who nicknamed her Mo, not unusual for Maureen. In addition to improv classes, Mo was a part of the Dudley Riggs’ Brave New Workshop in Minneapolis and also performed for two years at Disney’s Pleasure Island Comedy Warehouse in Orlando. Upon high school matriculation, Mo enrolled at the University of Florida.

Career Beginnings and Rise to Prominence

Mo’s professional career started in 1996 with a minor role in the film “Jingle All the Way”. She waited two years for her next prominent engagement, but the wait eventually paid off, as she was chosen as a cast member for the sketch comedy series “Mad TV”. She started off shy, but as the show progressed, Mo steadily became more popular, not only through many impressions of celebrities, but through characters that she created. We already stated which characters were the most popular ones, but let’s now mention some of her impressions – these  included Barbara Bush, Madonna, Pamela Anderson, Angelina Jolie, Catherine Hicks, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Shania Twain, among many others which only increased her popularity. Although she left the comedy series in 2004, she re-appeared as a guest star on several occasions, including the 300th episode in which she was Loraine Swanson, one of her most popular characters. Thanks to “Mad TV”, Mo became a star, and it became quite easy for her to secure new prominent roles.

Continual Success

In 2005, Mo had a role in the award-winning romantic comedy film “The 40-Year-Old Virgin”, starring Steve Carell, Catherine Keener, and Paul Rudd, while in 2007 she featured in the comedy film “Cougar Club”. The following year she portrayed Emily in the comedy series “According to Jim” and then in 2009 starred in the film “Flying By”, next to Ahnaise Christmas and Billy Ray Cyrus. The same year she was chosen for another prominent role, as Joan Callamezzo in the TV comedy series “Parks and Recreation”, and though appearing in only 19 episodes from 2009 to 2015, her character has become rather popular with the public. She struggled a lot professionally in the early 2010s but has re-emerged in recent years with the role of Molten Lava in the comedy film “McDick” (2017), written and directed by Chris McDonnell, and also as Susan in the TV comedy series “Lady Dynamite” (2016-2017). Most recently, she started portraying Sarah in the drama series “Fear the Walking Dead” (2018).

An Accomplished Voice Actress

In addition to screen roles, Mo has also been recognized for her voice acting; she started in 2000 with several characters in the animated series “Family Guy”, and continued with such animated series as “King of the Hill”, then “Sheriff Callie’s Wild West” from 2014 to 2016, and most recently in “F Is for Family” (2015-2017).
