Jennifer Coolidge is one of our nation's most prolific character actors; a regular in Christopher Guest films, with a recurring role on ABC Family's preposterous The Secret Life of the American Teenager. She even showed up in last year's whacked-out Werner Herzog piece, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans. Yet she'll likely forever be best known as Stifler's mom in American Pie. the iconic MILF that paved the way for ubiquitous "cougar" jokes in sitcoms for years to come. Whether or not the Foxfire crowd will make it to her stand-up shows this weekend at the Brea Improv remains to be seen, but hopefully her act has a few more laughs than those current Guest-directed Census ads starring Coolidge and fellow Guest regular Ed Begley.
