Busy Philipps Biography

Busy Philipps is a New York Times best-selling author, actress, and writer who struck a chord with critics and audiences early on in her career and has continued to garner attention as a dynamic actress and consistent scene-stealer.

Philipps began hosting her own late-night talk show, "Busy Tonight" on E! network on October 28, 2018. The show features Busy giving her hilarious and outspoken opinions on the latest pop culture stories and trending topics with candid celebrity guest interviews and original comedic segments. Philipps also serves as executive producer on the show, alongside Tina Fey, Julie Darmody and Eric Gurian.

Philipps released a collection of humorous autobiographical essays in her book "This Will Only Hurt a Little" on October 16, 2018. That book was immediately a New York Times Best Seller the first week. The book offers the same unfiltered and candid storytelling that Busy is beloved for using on her social media accounts.

On the big screen, Philipps was recently seen in the STX romantic comedy, I Feel Pretty, opposite Amy Schumer and Michelle Williams, and directed by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein. She also appeared in Joel Edgerton’s thriller The Gift, alongside Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall.

Also on television, she starred opposite Courteney Cox on the popular TBS comedy "Cougar Town" where she played ‘Laurie Keller.’ Philipps first garnered attention at the age of 19 in Judd Apatow and Paul Feig’s critically praised series, "Freaks and Geeks." Her performance as the tough-yet-sympathetic rebel Kim Kelly crafted Philipps as one of the most compelling young actors in contemporary television.

Following her breakout performance as a budding actress, she went on to appear in numerous roles across acclaimed television series’ including a 5-episode arc on "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles"; a major recurring role as the devout Christian med-student, Hope Bobeck, on season 14 of ER; and a series regular in Kevin Williamson’s award-winning coming-of-age series "Dawson's Creek" where she starred alongside a notable cast including, James Van Der Beek, Joshua Jackson, Katie Holmes and Michelle Williams.
