Kerri Kenney-Silver is an American actress, comedian, singer and writer best known as a cast member on MTV's "The State" and for her role as Deputy Trudy Wiegel on the Comedy Central series, "Reno 911!."
Kenney-Silver was born in Westport, Connecticut, the daughter of Carol and Larry Kenney, an actor who is known for his classic voice-over work. She has a sister, Ashley, and a brother, Tanner.
During the early 1990s, Kenney-Silver joined with the sketch comedy group "The State." The group was picked up for a self-titled sketch comedy show on MTV, "The State," which lasted for three seasons between 1993 and 1995. After the show's completion, Kenney-Silver continued working with her fellow troupe members on other projects. In 1996, she co-wrote and starred in "Viva Variety," a parody of variety shows that aired on Comedy Central for two seasons.
In 2000, Kenney-Silver followed in her father's footsteps, voicing the character of Gravitina in the children's cartoon "Buzz Lightyear of Star Command." She has since done a number of voices on the Nickelodeon series "Invader Zim." Additionally, she was cast as a regular on "The Ellen Show," which aired until 2001. She later found success with "Reno 911!," a series on Comedy Central that parodied police reality shows like "COPS," which also featured former members of "The State" -- Thomas Lennon, Ben Garant, and Joe Lo Truglio. The show was cancelled in 2009 after six seasons. Kenney-Silver also appeared on the TV series "Still Standing."
In July 2008, Kerri Kenney-Silver made her debut as "Dame Delilah," the title character in the web series "Dame Delilah's Fantasy Ranch & Gift Shoppe.' On the site various comedians give video testimony as characters working at or otherwise visiting the fictional Cat House. Kenney-Silver created the series and it was produced by her husband, Steve Silver, and Jared Mazzaschi.
Kenney-Silver was among the cast of "Suburban Shootout," a pilot episode directed and executive produced by Barry Sonnenfeld for HBO. The pilot filmed completely in The Hamptons, Long Island, in September 2008.
Kenney-Silver has appeared in films such as "All About Steve," "Reno 911!: Miami," "National Lampoon's Pledge This!," "Balls of Fury," "The Ten," "Role Models," and "Wanderlust."
In December 2011 it was announced that Kenney-Silver and actress Jamie Denbo are currently developing a new series for Comedy Central called "Dame Delilahs Rabbit Hole Ranch" based on a web series they previously created and starred in.
Kenney-Silver has a supporting role on the upcoming FOX series "Us & Them," an outrageous but authentic ensemble single-camera comedy about a pair of young lovers, whose path to happily-ever-after is complicated by the screwed-up circus of people closest to them.
Kenney-Silver was the lead singer and bass guitarist of the indie rock band Cake Like. She has had a longtime friendship with actor Nick Swardson since he was a baby, with him attending Thanksgiving dinner. She is married to cinematographer Steven V. Silver and they have one son, Kai, born on August 6, 2005.
