Whitney Cummings was born on September 4, 1982, much to the chagrin of her parents. As a tot, she performed around her house and thankfully was allowed to take her nonsense elsewhere, notably the Studio Theater in Washington D.C. In high school she performed in pretentious theater productions, then went to college, believe it or not. She attended University of Pennsylvania.
Whitney moved to Los Angeles after college and began her career on the hit show Punk'd. She can also be seen regularly on VH1's Best Week Ever, various E! countdown shows, as well as the new series Trapped in TV Guide.
