Nicole Sullivan as Carolyn Crumley
A native New Yorker, Nicole Sullivan has been acting since she was 7. She attended Northwestern University, where she spent her four years studying the classics such as Shakespeare and Chekhov. Shortly after graduating from Northwestern (where she was honored on the dean’s list), she became a member of the Greenwich Shakespeare Company.
Sullivan moved to Los Angeles, where she spent a few years perfecting her “table-waiting” and temping skills before landing a role on “MADtv” as the comedy sketch show’s youngest cast member. In the six years she spent on the late-night show, she became known for performing many recurring characters, such as the Vancome Lady -- and her sometimes scathing impersonations of celebrities such as Britney Spears and Meg Ryan.
In 2001, Sullivan happily joined the cast of “King of Queens” as Holly, the dog walker. Her many television guest appearances include shows such as NBC’s “Scrubs,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Monk,” “According to Jim,” and “Party of Five.”
Sullivan has been a guest on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “The Late Show with David Letterman” many times. Sullivan also does voices on numerous animated television shows, such as “Kim Possible,” “Family Guy,” and “Buzz Lightyear of Star Command.”
Sullivan and her husband, actor Jason Packham, live in the Hollywood Hills with their three rescue dogs, Jackson, Funsies, and Donut.
