Though this was a surprising blow for such a talented cast member, many of us could probably tell that this girl was going to go places beyond the show, and as we enter the end of 2009, that is starting to happen, as Anjelah is now in the movies, co-starring with some of the most talented and popular actors today. Along with the movies, Anjelah is set to star in a something very few comedians ever get, that will surely solidify her as one of the best young comedians today.

Let's first start with her movie roles. The first big role Anjelah is in is a role which has her moulding the young and small minds of children. These children however, have a very interesting handicap. That handicap being that they are chipmunks. No she is not a chipmunk trainer, she is the teacher of high voiced chipmunks in the new "Alvin and the Chipmunks" movie "Alvin and the Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel" released earlier this week. However, what might be better is not the role she plays, but the person who plays her love interest. That person is no other than the star of "Chunk" himself Zachary Levi who is in love with her. Her first big movie role and she gets to be the love interest of Zachary Levi. Not a bad way to begin her movie career.

Another movie that Anjelah has forthcoming is "Our Family
wedding dresses" which has her playing the annoying sister opposite of "Ugly Betty" star America Ferrera. She also has a yet to be named role in the movie adaptation of the lovable dog Marmaduke starring Judy Greer, William H. Macy, and voice starring Owen Wilson, and Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson among others.

These movie roles are great for a rising young actress like Anjelah, but she has still not forgotten her stand up comedy roots, as tonight she will be bestowed with an honour that very few comedians ever get to have. Tonight, Anjelah will be performing in her first ever "Comedy Central Stand Up Special". A true achievement for any stand up comedian.

Anjelah may be one of the shortest serving cast members in MADtv history, but it is clear that MADtv was not the end of her career like it has been for so many. MAD was just a stepping stone, but with the exposure of Bon Qui Qui among other things, it was a valuable stepping stone. Anjelah is climbing the entertainment ladder, and the top looks to be endless right now.

Very bad mistake made by mad tv. It is always nice to give opportunity to emerging players and to support them. Poor girl
