Debra Wilson biography (bio):
Debra Renee Wilson Skelton is an American comedian and actress. Wilson is most notable for being one of the original cast members on sketch comedy series MADtv and for being the longest serving cast member on the show. (That record was tied by fellow cast member Aries Spears in 2005 and broken by Michael McDonald in 2006). She has also done voice work for the animated series The Oblongs.

Debra Wilson was born and raised in New York City in the neighborhood of Ozone Park, Queens. Wilson attended the New York City High School of the Performing Arts. After graduation, she continued her studies at Syracuse University, working in television and radio broadcasting. Her acting debut was on the television pilot The Apollo Comedy Hour. Following this success she became a series regular on The Uptown Comedy Club and co-hosted Can We Shop? with Joan Rivers. She is currently hosting various programming on the TV Guide Channel.

Career:
MADtv:
Wilson was one of the original nine cast members of MADtv when the series aired in 1995. Unlike some of her fellow original repertory performers on MADtv, Wilson came to the show with limited sketch comedy experience and hardly any television background. However, she did have a well-established background in stand-up comedy.
Wilson was credited for creating some of the most popular recurring characters on the show. Among her characters were Cloret, Latina bimbo Melina (Lida and Melina), Reality Check's Tovah McQueen, Stick Chick Autumn, Kappa Kappa Kappa sorority sister Hayden Brooks, Alexis Dubane (Prehistoric Glamazon Huntresses), blaxploitation actress Cocoa Latite (Son of Dolemite), Lowered Expectations Host and Ms. Not Nice (Jenny Jones). Perhaps her best known character was the fast talking "Black American Princess" Bunifa Latifah Halifah Sharifa Jackson. The character makes extensive use of the Ebonics when speaking, and quickly accuses other characters' most basic assertions as motivated by racism. An early form of this character appeared in season one, but she was more articulate and a doctor.
She frequently appeared as Oprah Winfrey, often paired up with McDonald as supposed lover Dr. Phil McGraw, or Spears as long-time companion Stedman Graham. Most of these sketches would end in Winfrey evolving into a witch with supernatural powers after being provoked by an audience member. The character would be reprised in Scary Movie 4, which spoofed the Tom Cruise couch-jumping incident in 2005.
Her most well known impersonation was of R&B diva Whitney Houston. Wilson would parody Houston's reported frequent fights with her husband Bobby Brown, and her reported drug use (in the Christmas 2002 episode, Wilson portrayed Houston with frequent facial tics, suggesting that she was going through withdrawal from cocaine).
Other impressions Wilson surprised audiences with included Beyonc Knowles, Brandy, Chris Tucker, Condoleezza Rice, Downtown Julie Brown, Lil' Kim, Macy Gray, Mariah Carey, Rosie Perez, and Whoopi Goldberg.
When Nicole Sullivan left MADtv in 2001, Wilson became the last original cast member on the show. After eight seasons as a cast member, Wilson retired in 2003 as a repertory player on the show. She and Sullivan were the only cast members to be given a special recognition by the other cast members at their last show as a current cast member. At the time of her departure, Wilson held the record for the longest serving MADtv cast member. Wilson, along with fellow former cast members Sullivan and Will Sasso would reappear in the 2004-2005 season, both reprising some of their famous characters.

Television projects:
Since her debut on MADtv, Wilson has done voice acting on episodes on numerous television shows, landing some recurring roles on such shows as Clone High, Family Guy, and The Mr. Potato Head Show. Wilson has made numerous independent films, including Jane White Is Sick and Twisted, Skin Deep (in which she performed in her first frontal nude scene) and Soulmates. She and Sullivan have done commercials for Pepsi's Sierra Mist. She was also in an episode of Without a Trace as a nurse. She was the co-host of TV Guide Channel's TV Watercooler with John Fugelsang, until she was replaced by Teresa Strasser in October 2006. She also participated in VH1's Celebrity Paranormal Project, where she was the first contestant to have a spirit attempt to possess her.
She voiced Captain Lisa Cusak in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "The Sound of Her Voice".
