A native of Oregon, Everton spent the first 18 years of her life in the city of Portland. After graduating from high school, she travelled to Utah, where she enrolled at the Brigham Young University. Initially, she was studying medicine but later switched to film studies. During her senior year there, she began working in ‘Divine Comedy’. In 2012, she joined the cast of the new show ‘Studio C’. Everton has also written for and starred in projects such as ‘Pretty Darn Funny’ and ‘We Love You, Sally Carmichael’. She is quite popular on various platforms of social media.

Mallory Everton loved watching TV shows and films from an early age. Despite being too young to watch ‘Saturday Night Live’ (1975-present), ‘Dumb and Dumber’ (1994), and ‘Tommy Boy’ (1995), Everton did exactly that with her siblings back in 1996. These films and TV shows helped her garner an appreciation for comedy. In 2012, she made TV debut in an episode of ‘Pretty Darn Funny’.
She went to see her best friend Whitney Call audition for ‘Divine Comedy’, a humour group at BYU, and then signed up as a videographer for the group. A year later, she herself gave a successful audition and became a member of the cast.
Matt Reese and Jared Shores created ‘Studio C’ in 2012 and many of their colleagues in the ‘Divine Comedy’ troupe, including Everton, soon joined them. Some of Everton’s most popular sketches are ‘The Smiths’, ‘Worst...Ever’, and ‘Bad Karma’. She also serves as the director and writer on the show.
In 2017, she made her cinematic debut in the comedy ‘We Love You, Sally Carmichael!’ Also starring Elizabeth Tulloch, Felicia Day, and Christopher Gorham, the film tells the story of Simon Hayes, a bitter, serious novelist, who uses the pseudonym Sally Carmichael to write a series of romance novels about a merman and a human girl.
