Vilaysack was born in Washington, D.C. after her Laotian parents arrived from a refugee camp in Thailand. Her family soon moved to the Twin Cities, settling in the suburb of Eagan, Minnesota. She is of Lao, Chinese, Indian, and Thai descent. She has two younger sisters, Anita and Alyssa.
After graduating from high school, Vilaysack moved to Los Angeles where she attended the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising and received an associate's degree. She later took classes and performed at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles. She was also the co-founder of the Los Angeles/Silverlake based alternative comedy variety show, "Garage Comedy".
Vilaysack's acting work includes a recurring role as "Nurse Kulap" on the Adult Swim series Childrens Hospital. Other television guest appearances include Bob's Burgers, The Office, The Sarah Silverman Program, The Hotwives of Orlando, Parks and Recreation, Happy Endings, Reno 911! and Whitney. In 2007, she briefly worked as an associate producer on America's Got Talent.
Vilaysack is the ex-girlfriend and current wife of Scott Aukerman. Together they have a Boston terrier named Rocky. In the past, Vilaysack has dressed Rocky in a different costume for every day of October in preparation for Halloween; an event she refers to as "31 Days of Rocktober".
Vilaysack is currently directing a documentary about her family tree entitled Origin Story with post production expected to wrap in late 2015. The film incorporates the character Katharsis of The Movement, a superhero based on Vilaysack created by author Gail Simone.
Vilaysack and comedian June Diane Raphael are the founders and directors of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater (UCB) associated "UCB Corps" community, a volunteer charity organization. Vilaysack and Raphael organize charity events and projects to help improve the community, with the help of volunteers and other UCB performers "who want to make our world a better place".
In 2015 Vilaysack was named as one of Playboy's "32 Hottest Comediennes."
