Video Dump: The Best of Funny Girl, Abby Elliot’s, “The Assistant”

Abby Elliott, adorable funnywoman, is her family’s third generation Saturday Night Live alum. (What am I — I’m second generation next-to-nothing.) Elliott, who joined the cast in 2008, following Amy Poehler’s departure, was known as much for her kickass impressions of Zooey Deschanel and Angelina Jolie as she was for her cue-card read-throughs.

Although she left SNL in 2012, her “Assistant” sketches live on, as well they should. Thanks YouTube, for your elephantine memory!

Here are some classic Abby on Abby vids.
