Phyllis Allen (November 25, 1861 – March 26, 1938) was an American vaudeville and silent screen comedienne who worked with Charles Chaplin, Mabel Normand, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, and Mack Sennett during a film career spanning 74 movies in the decade between 1913 and 1923. Given her rotund size, she was quite similar in appearance to fellow screen comedienne Marie Dressler.
