Cheri Oteri (born Cheryl Ann Oteri) is an American comic actress, best known for her roles as a cast member on Saturday Night Live from 1995 to 2000. She portrays Carla on the NBC show, The New Normal.


After moving to Los Angeles at age 25, Oteri worked at A&M Records for four years and eventually joined a comedy troupe called The Groundlings. In 1995, the producers of Saturday Night Live attended a performance with the intention of auditioning fellow Groundlings member Chris Kattan. Oteri performed a monologue during one of Kattan's costume changes, which led to Oteri herself being invited to audition for SNL. She was hired as a repertory performer in September 1995 as part of an almost entirely new cast, which was brought in after the show's disastrous 1994-1995 season. Kattan would not join the cast of SNL until midway through the season.

She has also appeared in several Hollywood movies, including Scary Movie, Inspector Gadget, Liar Liar, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, Shrek the Third and Southland Tales. She starred in two TV pilots that did not make it to air, Loomis and With You in Spirit.

She has also made guest appearances on television shows, such as Just Shoot Me!, Strangers with Candy and as an emotionally unstable nanny on Curb Your Enthusiasm. In 2009, Oteri became a regular voice cast in the Fox animated comedy series, Sit Down, Shut Up. She voices Helen Klench, the unappreciated librarian who often gets mistaken for objects, such as brooms or toilet brushes. The series premiered on April 19, 2009 and moved to Comedy Central in May 2010. Kenan Thompson, Kristin Chenoweth, Tom Kenny,Justin Brown, Nick Kroll, Henry Winkler, Will Arnett and Will Forte are the other main cast members. She also played a tooth fairy on Imagination Movers, a regular on the Playhouse Disney block.

She recently starred in the AMC web series Liza Life Coach in 2010. Oteri appeared in the pilot episode of Glory Daze, which premiered on TBS on November 16, 2010.
