You know her as: The "SNL" bit player who was fired after one season.
Why we like her: The show has a rich history of one-season wonder, but few had the same potential as Slate. She was already creating strong recurring characters and rivaling Kristen Wiig's chameleon voice work when she got the boot. All while Abby Elliott endures against all odds...
Where else you've seen her: "Bored to Death," "Brothers" and the "Marcel the Shell" short on Vimeo.
