Carlie Craig


This is the part where Carlie Craig breaks big.

The comedian and impressionist extraordinaire is among the new faces on MADtv, the late-night classic turned prime-time laugh fest courtesy of the CW, which relaunched the series last month. And while you may be one of the 8 million people who have already seen Craig's reel of celebrity impressions online, now's the chance to see her sharpening her sketch chops every Tuesday with an ensemble that includes MADtv veterans Nicole Sullivan and Will Sasso.

"It's overwhelming in the best way to be a part of the MADtv reboot!" the Florida native, whose viral video helped score her that coveted audition, tells E! News. "It is a lot to juggle between the workload, the new friendships and having the privilege working with some of my heroes, like Debra Wilson and Nicole Sullivan, but I'm making an effort to stay as present as I can and soak in every moment.

"It's a beautiful time," Craig added.

But Craig can't help it that it's also a funny time when she's around, thanks to her fresh energy and roster of impressions and voices that are at the ready whenever they're called into duty.

Meanwhile, we wanted to know more about what makes the entertainer tick—so she graciously agreed to fill out our E!Q. And we like to think that she used her Ariana Grande voice to sing the answers as she went down the list...
