List of the most successful Mad TV cast members, as ranked by fans and critics. From 1995-2009, the sketch comedy show Mad TV brought millions of people laughter on Fox and later on multiple networks while in syndication. The show introduced the world to a cast full of talented young comedians who created memorable characters and captivated live audiences with celebrity impressions. Mad TV ended up being a wackier version of Saturday Night Live and therefore produced quite a few famous, successful alumni. Former cast members of Mad TV have gone on to be popular comedians with large comedy tours,television and movies stars, and writers.

Although SNL lasted longer and was more critically acclaimed, Mad TV comedians managed to hold their own and find a place in the tough world of comedic acting. Actors like Alex Borstein, Bobby Lee, and Mo Collins work regularly in sitcoms, animation, and movies. Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have found success in another sketch comedy show, while Mad TV alums like Taran Killam have been picked up by SNL.
