    Laraine Newman is a founding member of the Los Angeles based comedy group The Groundlings. She got her first break when appearing in a Lily Tomlin Special produced by Lorne Michaels. Michaels later hired her to be part of a late night show to run in place of Johnny Carson re-runs. That show was Saturday Night Live. She is an original cast member.

    Laraine has worked for directors varying in range from Woody Allen to Guillermo Del Toro. Her more current on-camera roles include IFC’s The Birthday Boys, Comedy Bang Bang and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    Laraine’s character work from stage and TV made animation voice acting a natural fit and after sporadic recurring roles in shows like The New Batman Adventures, Superman, Hey Arnold and CatDog (The Ingrid Twins) she landed her first series; Histeria (Miss Information),.She has worked steadily in animation ever since.

    Other series include The Oblongs (Mrs. Hubbard, Nurse Wrench), Oswald The Octopus (Madame Butterfly), Danny Phantom (Mrs. Tetslaff), Fairly Odd Parents (Queen Jipjurrulac), As Told By Ginger (Lois Foutley), The Garfield Show (Aunt Ivy, Winona/utility), Metalocalypse (Pickles’ Mom, Skwisgaar’s Mom, Nathan’s Mom, utility), Jungle Junction (Karla), Doc McStuffins (Professor Hootsburgh, Southwest Sal, Aurora), The Adventures of Puss in Boots (Pajuna) and Dawn Of The Croods (Gran, One Eyed Amber). A complete list can be found on IMDB.

    Laraine has also enjoyed working on such features as Monsters Inc., Monsters University, The Lorax, Wreck-It Ralph, Despicable Me 2, Ice Age: The Meltdown, Barnyard, Horton Hears A Who, Wall-E, Ponyo, Tom and Jerry & The Wizard of Oz, The Boxtrolls, Minions, Inside Out and The Secret Life of Pets. (a complete list can be found on IMDB).

    Laraine would supply a list of her video games too, but frankly, Laraine is exhausted from trying to sound modest while bragging. She absolutely adores animation voice over and can’t understand why they’re paying her for it since it’s so fun. …Okay, okay. She’ll list the video games: Star Wars: The Old Republic, Madagascar (Queen Bee/Grandma), Spider-Man 3, Bee Movie Game, Stupid Invaders, True Crime: New York City, The Rise of the Argonauts and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.
