Stephnie Weir
Stephnie Carmel Weir
(born November 28, 1967) is an American actress and comedian, best known for her membership in the recurring cast on MADtv. She portrays Mrs. Hoffman in Modern Family Season 2's Our Children, Ourselves.

Early life

Stephnie Weir was born in Odessa, Texas. She attended Odessa College where she majored in theater and broadcasting. Weir then transferred to Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, where she majored in anthropology and women's studies. After moving to Chicago, Stephnie Weir began performing at the Improv Olympic and later on The Second City's main stage and the Goodman Theatre. Weir teamed up with her husband, Robert Dassie, to form the comedy duo WeirDass.

MADtv years

Weir joined the cast of MADtv in 2000 as a feature performer, for the 6th season. However, she was later promoted to a repertory performer status the following season.

Weir left MADtv in January 2006, midway through her 6th season of the show. Weir had announced in 2005 (season 10) that she would be leaving. However, fellow cast members Aries Spears and Paul Vogt would leave as well, and Ron Pederson would be let go by Fox due to budget cuts, so in order for the viewers to feel a sense of continuity, Weir was persuaded to stay on the show until half way through season 11. Some of her famous characters included Angela Wright, Dr. Kylie, Dorothy Lanier, Leona Campbell and Dot Goddard.

Stephnie Weir also gained notoriety for her offbeat impersonations of Anna Nicole Smith (with whom she shared her birth date), Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Laura Bush, and Marcia Cross.
