Jillian Ann "Jill" Talley (born December 19, 1962) is a comedic actress, most well known as a major cast member of Mr. Show during its four seasons on HBO. She is the wife of partner voice actor Tom Kenny, who also appeared regularly in the series. Previously, they were both cast members of the short-lived FOX Network sketch comedy show The Edge from 1992 to 1993. They also appeared together in the 1996 Smashing Pumpkins video "Tonight, Tonight" as the married couple who take a honeymoon on the moon.

Talley's vocal work includes portraying Karen, the computer wife of Plankton on SpongeBob SquarePants, as well as Gretchen, the tomboyish alligator Squirrel Scout, the scholarly giraffe named Nina, and the largely angry warthog named Ms. Mucus on Camp Lazlo. She also voices Sarah Du Bois on the Adult Swim show The Boondocks, and Lindsey Gunt on Nickelodeon's Herdy & Gerdy. Since Mr. Show's run she has also appeared in minor roles in several films such as Little Miss Sunshine and Sky High, the latter of which she appeared with her husband. Her voice was featured in the video game Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops. She also did Nosey on a Rocko's Modern Life episode on Nickelodeon, and worked alongside Tom Kenny in Here Comes Peter Cottontail. She was also the voice of Nosey in the Rocko's Modern Life episode "Speaking Terms."

Talley's father was a firefighter and she lived in Chicago near Chicago Midway International Airport during her childhood. In her twenties, she performed improv comedy in Chicago at the Improv Institute and The Second City. She currently resides in Studio City with her husband and their two children, Mac and Nora.

Jill Talley is a comedic actress and is married to Tom Kenny. She is the voice of Karen, Plankton’s computer W.I.F.E. and some other small characters in the SpongeBob SquarePants. In The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, she voices the old lady in the monster.
