Vanessa Bayer recently wrapped her seventh and final season of "Saturday Night Live."
Bayer burst onto the scene during her debut season with her impression of Miley Cyrus in the wildly popular sketch "The Miley Cyrus Show." She has continued to wow audiences with her impressions as well as her recurring characters Jacob the Bar Mitzvah Boy and the ditzy porn star-turned-aspiring-pitchwoman Becky.
Bayer came to the cast of "SNL" from iO Chicago, the Annoyance and the Second City. She starred in the acerbic puppet show "Felt" and the improv team "Revolver" at iO Chicago, wrote and performed in the Annoyance Theatre's "Swear Jar" and performed stand-up at Zanies.
Originally from Cleveland, Bayer received her degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 2004. While in college, she interned at "Sesame Street" and "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and was a member of Bloomers, a storied all-female comedy troupe.
Bayer lent her voice to Universal Pictures' animated feature "Despicable Me 2" and stars in the web series "Sound Advice with Janessa Slater" that she co-created with her brother Jonah for Broadway Video's Above Average. She starred in the box office hit, "Trainwreck" alongside Amy Schumer. Bayer can also be seen in Susan Johnson’s independent feature, "Carrie Pilby," as well as the Dreamworks feature "Office Christmas Party." Bayer will next appear in the indie film "The Polka King."
