Early life and education[edit]

Myrin was born in Little Compton, Rhode Island, a quiet seaside village. Her father was an accountant, and her mother was a real estate agent. She has an older brother, Alarik. As a child, she staged her neighborhood plays, and enjoyed seeing Annie on Broadway. Myrin attended the Friends Academy in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, where she graduated. She then attended Middlesex School in Concord, Massachusetts for high school. She is of Swedish and Norwegian heritage.[1]

Afterwards, Myrin attended Colorado College, a small liberal arts school, where she received a degree in theater and studio arts. She was elected commencement speaker at her graduation. During one college break, Myrin began to study improvisational comedy and worked as an intern on NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien, where she admits she "mostly ran the Xerox machine."

Career[edit]

Soon after graduation, Myrin briefly moved to Chicago, where she became a member of the Improv Olympic and later re-located to New York City and Los Angeles, where she was part of the same group. One of her memorable standup comedian acts included a section of her own life experiences called Straight Outta Lil' Compton. Myrin also trained with the Los Angeles comedy troupes The Groundlings and Upright Citizens Brigade.

Mad TV[edit]

Myrin officially joined the cast of Mad TV in 2005 as a repertory performer for the eleventh season and remained with the show until it was canceled in 2009.
