Monroe performed at The Second City, both on the Chicago and Detroit stages. In Chicago, she appeared in the 2004 revue Red Scare[3], directed by Mick Napier, where the character "Sassy Gay Friend" originated, and she would later appear as Desdemona in one of the character's online incarnations.[4]

She has appeared in episodes of The Neighbors, Parks and Recreation, According to Jim, Hannah Montana, Maron, Modern Family ("Bad Hair Day"), Key & Peele and the web series Cowgirl Up. In 2010, she appeared in The Back-up Plan. In fall 2012, she appeared in Applebee's commercials with ESPN host Chris Berman. In 2014, Monroe began appearing in commercials for La Quinta Inns & Suites and E-Trade, with Kevin Spacey.

Monroe also appeared in the HBO series The Brink.

As of Fall 2017, Monroe has a recurring role as Mindy St. Claire on the hit NBC sitcom The Good Place, starring Ted Danson and Kristen Bell. Monroe's character, due to a question of point allocation, is the only character who is in "the medium place," neither "the good place" or "the bad place." This allows for Mindy to live a boring eternity as an ex-cocaine addict reading the same People magazine and watching movies on VHS.
