Nasim Pedrad is an actress/comedian who was recently promoted to featured cast member on Saturday Night Live. She also played a nurse on ER. Her big screen credits include a small yet charming role in No Strings Attached.

When she was two, Nasim immigrated to the U.S. after her parents decided to stay stateside to escape the aftermath of the Iranian revolution. After graduating from the UCLA School of Theater, she briefly considered going to law school, but instead pursued her acting career instead. She became an established member of The Groundlings and also wrote and performed in a one-woman comedic show called Me, Myself, & Iran. Her impressions include Arianna Huffington, Kim Kardashian, Kathy Griffin, and Marilyn Monroe. She is also fluent in Farsi.
