“Behind Ms. Gasteyer’s façade is a strong singing voice that can stir up quite a storm.” -The New York Times
Comedian, actor and singer Ana Gasteyer is a true Renaissance woman, first starring in six seasons of Saturday Night Live then going on to create the role of Elphaba for Chicago's sit-down production of Wicked. With numerous TV and movie credits to her name, Gasteyer now puts her comedic chops and stellar voice to good use in this one-of-a-kind cabaret act featuring music, comedy and stories. She sings jazz standards, Broadway showstoppers and songs from her album “I’m Hip,” blending her unique world view and singing in a style reminiscent of 1940s jazz.
Gasteyer was born in Washington, D.C., the daughter of Mariana Roumell-Gasteyer, an artist, and Phil Gasteyer, a lobbyist who later became the mayor of Corrales, New Mexico. Her maternal grandparents were Romanian and Greek. She graduated from Sidwell Friends School and Northwestern University School of Communication in 1989. During her first year, she lived on the fourth floor of Willard Residential College on campus and majored in voice. She later became a theater major.
Gasteyer developed comedy experience with the Los Angeles improv – sketch comedy group The Groundlings. She played roles on Seinfeld (as a doomed customer of The Soup Nazi), Party of Five, Frasier, Hope & Gloria and NYPD Blue. In 1996, Gasteyer joined the cast of Saturday Night Live. Among her most popular characters were high school music teacher Bobbie Mohan-Culp, National Public Radio Delicious Dish host Margaret Jo McCullen, Lilith Festival feminist singer Cinder Calhoun, and her impressions of Martha Stewart and Celine Dion.
