Gillian Vigman (born January 28, 1972) is an American comic actress. She 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, and had recurring roles in the sitcoms Suburgatory and New Girl.
|Occupation||Actress, writer and comedian|
Vigman attended Colgate University, graduating in 1994.
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.
She 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. At the end of Season Nine, in 2004, her contract was not renewed.
She made appearances on several television shows like I Love the '90s, Scrubs, World Cup Comedy and Cupid before starring in the ABC comedy Sons & Daughters, playing the role of Liz Walker. After Sons & Daughters, Vigman appeared on a number of hit shows including According to Jim, Parks and Recreation, and New Girl, before landing the recurring part of Jill Werner on Suburgatory in 2011. Her film credits include The Hangover series, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, After the Sunset, Dragonfly, and Love 101.
She has appeared in various commercials, including for Hanes, Jack in the Box, Chase, Swiffer, Splenda, Esurance, 1-800 Contacts, DirectTV, United Airlines, Rooms to Go, Buick, Real California Milk, and Progressive Insurance.
