Biography

Ginger Gonzaga was an actress who rose to fame with appearances in some of the most popular and acclaimed film and TV comedies of the early 21st century. Before she began acting, Gonzaga earned a B.A. in Political Science/International Relations with a minor in Chinese from UC Santa Barbara, while also training in sketch comedy and improv at the Groundlings and Second City Theaters. Following a few appearances in short films and short lived TV shows, Gonzaga got her first break with a small role in Seth MacFarlane's profane stuffed animal comedy "Ted" (2012). MacFarlane was apparently impressed with her, as he offered her voice work on a number of episodes of "Family Guy" (FOX, 1998-2002, 2005-). Before long, Gonzaga became a familiar face on the small screen, appearing on such sitcoms and comedy programs as "The Millers" (CBS, 2013-2015), "Mixology" (ABC, 2014), "You're the Worst" (FX, 2014/FXX, 2015-), "Anger Management" (FX, 2012-2014), "Key & Peele" (Comedy Central, 2012-15), and "Togetherness" (HBO, 2015-16). She got her first big film role in comedian Demitri Martin's romantic dramedy "Dean" (2016). Afterwards, Gonzaga continued her TV winning streak with roles on the likes of "Wrecked" (TBS, 2016-), "Trial & Error" (NBC, 2017-), "I'm Dying Up Here" (Showtime, 2017-18), and "BoJack Horseman" (Netflix, 2014-). In 2018, Gonzaga landed her biggest TV role yet, co-starring in the showbiz comedy "Alone Together" (Freeform, 2018).
