LIFE OF THE PARTY

GILLIAN JACOBS (Helen) is a natural talent with a striking presence and undeniable energy, and is one of Hollywood's most vibrant young actresses. Jacobs can currently be seen in the third season of the Netflix original series "Love," starring opposite Paul Rust. Produced by Judd Apatow, "Love" follows Mickey (Jacobs) and Gus (Rust) as they navigate the exhilaration and humiliations of intimacy, commitment and other things they are hoping to avoid.

On the film side, Jacobs will next be seen in the Netflix film "Ibiza," alongside Vanessa Bayer and Phoebe Robinson, to be released May 25, 2018. Jacobs will play a young woman whose two best friends (Bayer and Robinson) tag along on her work trip to Barcelona and Ibiza that quickly turns into a crazy hunt for a popular DJ.

Most recently, Jacobs wrapped production on the film "Magic Camp," opposite Adam Devine and Jeffrey Tambor, about a man (Devine) returning to the magic camp he attended as a child, with the hopes of winning the prize that eluded him when he was younger. Jacobs will play Devine's former partner.

Additionally, Jacobs could recently be seen starring in Thomas Kail's and Sarah Burgess' off-Broadway play "Kings." Featuring Jacobs opposite Eisa Davis, Aya Cash and Zach Grenier, the story follows Sydney Millsap (Davis), a representative whose high-minded principles clash with Kate (Jacobs), a whip-smart lobbyist who pulls no punches.

In 2017, Jacobs starred in "Dean," opposite actor/director Demetri Martin. The film won Best Narrative Feature at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival. In 2016, Jacobs was seen starring alongside Keegan Michael Key in the Critics' Choice-nominated dramatic Comedy "Don't Think Twice," written and directed by Mike Birbiglia. The film revolves around an improv group that loses its lease on its home theater at the same time that one of its cast members gets chosen for the biggest sketch-comedy show on television. In 2015, Jacobs co-starred in the fourth season of the HBO hit series "Girls," as fan-favorite Mimi Rose Howard, the multimedia artist who doesn't agree with Hannah's (Lena Dunham) interpretations about art and challenges her ideas.

Jacobs made her directorial debut with "The Queen of Code," a documentary short film about Grace Hopper, the computer scientist and high-ranking naval officer. The short premiered on Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight website in 2015 as part of the "Signals" docuseries, where filmmakers use data analytics to explore stories across political, economic, science, lifestyle and sports domains.

Previously, Jacobs starred in the critically acclaimed comedy series "Community." She was nominated for a Broadcast Television Journalists Association Award in the category of Best Comedy Supporting Actress for her performance as Britta.
