Molly Shannon has signed with UTA for film and television.

The comedian is best known for her six-year tenure on Saturday Night Live, where from 1995 to 2001 she portrayed memorable characters such as 50-year-old Sally O’Malley and Catholic schoolgirl Mary Katherine Gallagher (who received her own 1999 feature film, Superstar).

In 2011, Shannon published her first children’s book, Tilly the Trickster, and the following year she was part of the star-studded voice cast for the animated Hotel Transylvania. She can now be seen in Scary Movie 5 and will next appear in the Clark Gregg comedy Trust Me and the indie ensemble comedy Larry Gaye: Renegade Male Flight Attendant.

Shannon also is producing and co-writing the Disney feature The Moms.

Shannon continues to be repped by Framework and attorney Steve Warren of Hansen Jacobson and by WME for personal appearances and endorsements.
