* TheCastShowoff: Made use of her singing skills by playing pop stars (most notably Music/ChristinaAguilera, but she's played other pop singers too, like Melissa Etheridge, Music/{{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]], Music/KatyPerry, K.D. Lang, Sarah [=McLachlan=], and Jewel) on ''[=SNL=]''. She had a recurring bit as Creator/ZooeyDeschanel, and manages to mimic her voice rather successfully (the only other cast member to mimic Deschanel's voice accurately was short-lived season 39 cast member Noel Wells, who also had the benefit of looking similar to Zooey Deschanel as well, but, sadly, the writers didn't capitalize on it like they did with Abby Elliott).

Added DiffLines:

** WhatMightHaveBeen: Played Alexis Rose in the unaired pilot of ''Series/SchittsCreek'', on which her father plays Mayor Roland Schitt. She was unavailable when the show went to series so she was replaced by Annie Murphy.


* GenerationXerox: Her dad is Chris Elliott, from the short-lived Fox sitcom ''Series/GetALife'' and the also-short-lived AnimatedAdaptation of ''WesternAnimation/{{Dilbert}}'' that aired on Creator/{{UPN}}. 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 [[Radio/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.
