Gillian Jacobs was born on October 19, 1982 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA as Gillian McLaren Jacobs. She is an actress, known for Community (2009), The Box (2009) and Gardens of the Night (2008).
Studied acting at the Juilliard School, in New York City, graduating in 2004.

Starred in such off-Broadway productions as "Little Flower of East Orange", which was directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman, as well as "A Feminine Ending", directed by Blair Brown.

Made her New York stage debut in 2006 in "Cagelove". Her performance as an assault victim was praised in a New York Times review, which said she "has the glow of a star in the making".

Her first love is theater. She started acting at the Pittsburgh Public Theater and frequently competed in an annual Shakespeare Monologue Contest.

Good friends with Community (2009) co-star Joel McHale.
I'd never really done comedy before 'Community,' so getting to work day in and day out with all these great people, directors, writers, and actors, I feel like I've learned a lot.

I had some years of definite frustration. Auditioning and not working as much as I would have liked to, or working and being paid a pittance, and sort of scrounging by in New York and sleeping on a chair that folded out into a bed.
