Ellen Cleghorne

Cleghorne, a cast member from 1991 to 1995, emerged as the queen of celebrity impressions, having spoofed Anita Hill, Dr. Dre, Natalie Cole, Mary J. Blige, Tina Turner and Whoopi Goldberg. She starred on her own sitcom Cleghorne! (with SNL alum Garrett Morris) and appeared in films Little Nicky, Kingdom Come and Old School.
