Heidi Gardner hails from Kansas City, Missouri (Missouri, not Kansas! Sorry if that was aggressive). She likes to think her early character work as an adolescent prank caller prepared her for a life in sketch comedy. She is also an avid sports fan. Go Chiefs! Go Royals! Go Lebron! When she’s not watching sports, she’s playing with her cats. Go Tweaky! Go Cubby Bear! Go Marshall! She writes and performs on the television show, SUPERMANSION on Sony’s Crackle network and Warner Bros. upcoming motion picture, LIFE OF THE PARTY. She is the newest cast member on NBC’s SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.
