Comedians are wonderful people and blessings to humanity, it is one thing to possess a sense of humor and it is another thing to make a living off comedy. You can imagine the joy etched on fans to be when Mo Collins came to the fore, an actress and a comedian, not forgetting to mention that she won’t make for bad viewing if you decide to hand her portrait on a wall.
Mo is perhaps best known for being a member of the ensemble on FOX’s sketch comedy series Mad TV. She became popular for several characters during her tenure on the show.
Mo Collins was born on July 7, 1965, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States of America. Her birth sign is Cancer as a result of her birth date. Her birth name however was not the rather famous we know today as Mo Collins but it was rather Maureen Ann Collins. Her high school education was fostered at Robbinsdale Armstrong High School. In an attempt to hone her improvisation and sketch writing skills, she decided to attend Dudley Riggs Brave New Workshop.
She joined the acting fraternity in 1996, appeared in Jingle All The Way in 1996. After going through the motions, theater productions, a host of commercials, and a couple of movies, The City of Angels called and she moved to Los Angeles. Mo Collins is best known for her work on the project MADtv and she got her to break into the show at the inception of its 4th season in the Fall of 1998. She stayed with the MADtv train all the way up to its 9th season in the Spring of 2004 when she left the show. Despite leaving the show, her comedy genius was so sought after that she returned for several stints later on. She returned during the 10th season in 2005, the 300th episode on season 13 in 2007, the last episode of the 14th season in 2009, and the reunion special on the show’s 20th anniversary in 2016.
She is probably best known for her roles like Doreen, the mother of an overgrown toddler with a screechy voice. The annoying, odd, confused woman Lorraine and the seemingly always unlucky character of Trina.
