Laraine Newman (born March 2, 1952) is an American comedienne and actress.

Newman was born in Los Angeles, California and attended Beverly Hills High School in Beverly Hills, California. She began her comedy career as a founding member of The Groundlings and is most well known for being an original cast member on NBC's "Saturday Night Live", appearing on the show from its inception in 1975 through 1980. She originated the characters of Sheri The Valley Girl and Connie Conehead, among others.

According to the book "Saturday Night: A Backstage History of Saturday Night Live", Newman was frustrated with her lack of airtime on "Saturday Night Live" and had a rivalry with Gilda Radner. Newman's post-SNL film career has been limited, achieving greater success in supporting roles and as a voice artist on television and features. She starred in the 1986 syndicated comedy series, "The Canned Film Festival", and made appearances on such programs as "Laverne & Shirley", "According to Jim", "St. Elsewhere", "Amazing Stories", "Friends", "The Tick", "3rd Rock from the Sun", "Curb Your Enthusiasm", "Histeria!", "Danny Phantom", "As Told By Ginger", "Rugrats" (in "All Growed Up", an episode which would form the basis of the spinoff "All Grown Up!", for which she also provided voice work), "7th Heaven", "" and "Metalocalypse". Most recently she appeared in an episode of "Entourage" and "Brothers & Sisters", and provided voice work for "WALL-E".
