Sarah Schneider is an American writer, actress, and comedian. She got her start in entertainment as a writer and actress for the comedy website CollegeHumor before becoming a writer for the television sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live.
Schneider attended Wake Forest University—as did CollegeHumor co-founder Ricky Van Veen, although they did not know one another—where she was a member of the University's "Lilting Banshees" student comedy troupe. A mutual friend recommended Schneider to Van Veen, who hired her as a freelance writer in May 2005 to work on the book The CollegeHumor Guide To College. From there she became a full time writer and the first female permanent employee. As part of the CollegeHumor staff she starred as a fictionalized version of herself in the short-lived television series The CollegeHumor Show (2009) and web series including Hardly Working and Full Benefits; starred as other characters in other original videos; and wrote episodes, videos and articles.
In 2011, Schneider became a writer for Saturday Night Live. She had been a guest writer on the last five episodes of season 36 (2010–2011) and became a full time writer from season 37 (2011–2012).
