Jan Hooks


1986-1991

Jan Hooks was born April 23, 1957 in Decatur, Georgia. When she joined the cast of SNL she became arguably the most versatile comedienne that ever set foot in the SNL studio. Specializing in impressions instead of actual characters, Jan flawlessly portrayed many female celebrities including Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton, Nadia Comeneci, Sally Jessy Raphael, Tammy Faye Bakker, Diane Sawyer, and Sinead O'Connor. She also performed the character of Candy Sweeney of the Sweeney Sisters along with Nora Dunn.
Since SNL, Jan has done various TV & movie cameos, plus some Nike commercials and a few episodes of 3rd Rock from the Sun including last season's finale with the late Phil Hartman as her boyfriend.
