About the character: Drella is the straight to the point, no nonsense harp player at the Independence Inn. She is never afraid to add her two cents to any situation.

About the actress: Alexandrea Borstein comes from Chicago but moved to Los Angeles in 1980 with her family. She went on to graduate from San Francisco State University.

Alex was a member of the Los Angeles-based ACME Comedy Theatre before hitting the big time. While working on her stand-up comedy career, she was spotted performing in the Big Stinkin' International Improv and Sketch Festival in Austin, Texas by a MADtv casting agent.
