Gillian Vigman (born January 28, 1972) is an American comic actress. Vigman is most recognizable for her role as "Jack's Wife" in many Jack in the Box commercials but is also notable for her membership in the recurring cast of comedians on sketch comedy series MADtv. She also starred in the ABC comedy Sons & Daughters. Vigman plays a supporting role on The Defenders.

Life and career[edit]

Vigman was born in Holmdel, New Jersey, to a British mother and American father. Her father was born Jewish and her mother converted to Judaism.[1]

Vigman attended Colgate University, graduating in 1994.[2] She started her professional comedy career in Chicago working for The Second City. Prior to joining the cast of MADtv, Vigman toured with The Second City National Touring Company in 2000, to launch its 20th anniversary S season.

Vigman first appeared on MADtv in the eighth episode of the Eighth Season in a sketch called "The Real Bachelor." She is only the second cast member to appear in an earlier season before joining the regular recurring cast. Only Daniele Gaither, who appeared in a sketch in Season Two before joining the cast in Season Nine, has obtained such a distinction.

Vigman officially joined the cast of MADtv in 2003, as a feature performer, for the ninth season. Vigman's tenure on MADtv was limited to only one season. At the end of Season Nine, in 2004, her contract was not renewed.

Vigman starred in the ABC comedy Sons & Daughters, playing the role of Liz Walker. She currently appears on the TV comedy series Suburgatory.

Before starring in Sons & Daughters, Vigman made appearances on several television shows like I Love the '90s, Scrubs, World Cup Comedy and Cupid. Her film credits include The 40-Year-Old Virgin, After the Sunset, Dragonfly and Love 101.

In addition, she has been in various commercials, including Hanes, Jack in the Box,[3] Chase, Swiffer, Splenda, Esurance[3] 1-800 Contacts, DirectTV, United Airlines, Rooms to Go, Buick, Real California Milk and recently Progressive Insurance.
