Shor was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She has described herself as "half Jewish but not really religious" (her father was Jewish). She speaks fluent Yiddish as well as Italian. Her parents divorced when she was 7, and she alternated between living in Turin, Italy (with her mother), and suburban Detroit (with her father). She later attended the University of Michigan where she received her B.F.A. in drama.
Shor is married to Justin Hagan.
Shor moved to New York City and landed a series of stage roles, most notably Hedwig and the Angry Inch. In 2000 she starred in the short-lived ABC sitcom Then Came You. She subsequently appeared in guest spots on such programs as My Name Is Earl and The West Wing, and accepted supporting roles in the Harold Ramis comedy remake Bedazzled (2000) and the 2001 cinematization of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, reprising her role of Yitzhak.
In 2006, she starred in the ABC television series Big Day and in the movie Shortbus. In 2007, Shor lent a supporting role to Mary Stuart Masterson's directorial debut, the slice-of-life drama The Cake Eaters. The following year, she scored a regular part on the '70s-set prime-time CBS drama series Swingtown as Janet Thompson. The show was later canceled due to a negative reception and low ratings.
In 2012 Shor starred as Cricket Caruth-Reilly in ABC's series GCB, with Leslie Bibb, Kristin Chenoweth, Annie Potts, Jennifer Aspen and Marisol Nichols. Series was canceled after one season. Later in 2012 Shor was cast in recurring role as dogged reporter Mandy Post of season four on The Good Wife.
