American actress and comedian Eliza Coupe, probably most known for her role as the spunky intern Denise Mahoney in the medical sitcom Scrubs, has been acting ever since her days in Plymouth Regional High School in Plymouth, New Hampshire. Before she graduated from the school in 2000, Eliza gained much experience and confidence as she was actively involved in Plymouth's award-winning theatre program under the direction of Ms. Sarah Bunkley. The small town girl moved on to study with the theatre program of the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) in Valencia, California.

Coupe eventually settled in New York City where the theater scene has been much alive for decades. While there, she became a member of the improv comedy group Upright Brigade Theatre along with Scrubs co-intern Aziz Ansari. Surrounded by similarly talented and creative artists, Eliza was able to develop her solo sketch show called The Patriots, which premiered in November 2005. It imaginatively depicted the best and worst of American culture through its wildly diverse and humorous characters including a young Irish girl, a drunken bimbette, and a Boston native with a foul mouth. From doing improv and theatre, Coupe took the next logical step, which was to establish a career in film and television.

In 2007, Eliza appeared in her first feature film, I Think I Love My Wife, a romantic-comedy written, directed, and starred in by veteran comedian Chris Rock. She then made her television debut in an episode of MTV's short-lived satire Nick Cannon Presents: Short Circuitz. Coupe also had guest-starring stints as Bret's girl on HBO's Flight of the Conchords and as Todd's ex-girlfriend on Samantha Who?. In 2009, she joined the wacky gang of Sacred Heart Hospital in the eighth season of Bill Lawrence's Scrubs.
