Mo Collins was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on July 7th, 1965. A painfully shy youth, Mo developed her love of improv comedy after becoming involved in a drama class in the 8th grade. After attending Robbinsdale Armstrong High School, graduating in 1983, she then attended college for two years before quitting to attend Dudley Riggs Brave New Workshop in Minneapolis, where she honed her improv and sketch-writing skills. She left after a few years, and moved to Florida where she worked for two years at a Disney Orlando improv place called "Pleasure Island". While there, Mo met fellow MADtv castmember Paul Vogt and his brother Peter, and they became not only co-workers but close friends. Mo then returned to Minneapolis where she starred in many theater productions and plays. In 1993 Mo married fellow Minnesotan and rock drummer Jimi Englund. They have a son, Cullen who is now 10 years old.
