!!!Related Tropes
* TheCastShowoff: Made use of her singing skills by playing pop stars (most notably ChristinaAguilera, but she's played other pop singers too, like Melissa Etheridge, {{Kesha}} [[note]]whom Elliott plays up as a strung-out ValleyGirl who actually takes her songs seriously, citing them as "not parodies" when Weird Al Yankovic -- played by Andy Samberg -- referred to her as "the reigning queen of parody songs"[[/note]], KatyPerry, K.D. Lang, Sarah [=McLachlan=], and Jewel) on ''[=SNL=]''. She had a recurring bit as ZooeyDeschanel, and manages to mimic her voice rather successfully.
* CuteButCacophonic: Her portrayals of Khloe Kardashian, Anna Faris, and Joan Cusack (especially Anna Faris, who sounds eerily like the real Faris, and Joan Cusack, who doesn't sound like Cusack at all).
* GenerationXerox: Her dad is Chris Elliott, from the short-lived FOX sitcom ''Get A Life''. He also was a cast member on ''SNL'' during its 20th season, which, like seasons six and eleven, was despised by fans and critics for [[SeasonalRot being bad]] (this makes Abby Elliot the first ''SNL'' cast member to be the child of another -- and, now that she's left the show, the only child of a former ''SNL'' cast member to last longer on the show and have more fan appeal than the parent). Her [[BobAndRay grandfather]] is a famous comedian too and cameoed on a 1978 Christmas episode of ''SNL'' hosted by Creator/ElliottGould, making Abby Elliott a third-generation ''SNL'' performer.
** Furthermore, Chris Elliott gained a following during TheEighties for his frequent appearances on the David Letterman incarnation of ''Series/LateNight''. These days, Abby often pops up in bits on ''Series/LateNight'' with ''JimmyFallon''.
