Born and raised in San Diego, California, Carly comes from a large Italian-Irish family that includes two professional baseball players: her father, Rocky Craig, a scout for the Seattle Mariners; and younger brother, Casey Craig. Her mother, Marzalie Craig, is a flight attendant for American Airlines. She has one sister and two brothers, and is the step-sister of entertainer Mandy Moore.
Craig studied drama at The Stella Adler Academy, but after a conversation with Dan Aykroyd, she began to study at Second City, where she later graduated. She met famed manager Bernie Brillstein while waiting tables and decided to put on a comedy show with her classmates. Brillstein came to that show and soon after, signed her as a client. Director David Wain cast Craig in Role Models as the love interest for Seann William Scott. Other projects would include Mike Leigh's critically lauded live show Ecstasy, Neil LaBute's Bash, independent feature film Star Sucker with Tom Arnold, Rob Corddry's web series Childrens Hospital, National Lampoon's Bag Boy, The Heartbreak Kid, Hall Pass, The Three Stooges, and Stephen Merchant's HBO series Hello Ladies.
