Nora Eloise Dunn is an American actress and comedienne who voiced Morgan Proctor in "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back". She is best known for her tenure as a repertory player on Saturday Night Live from seasons 11 (1985-1986) to season 15 (1989-1990). Her popular recurring characters on the show were Babette the French hooker, lesbian psychiatrist Dr. Norma Hoeffering, vapid talk show host Pat Stevens, and Liz Sweeney, one half of the Singing Sweeney Sisters (the other half was played by Jan Hooks, who also did voicework on Futurama), and her celebrity impressions include Ann Landers, Peggy Lee, Donna Rice, Leona Helmsley, and Imelda Marcos. Following her choice to boycott appearing in an episode hosted by misogynistic shock comedian, Andrew "Dice" Clay, Dunn was fired from SNL near the end of the 15th season.

Since appearing on SNL, Dunn has had recurring television roles in The X-Files, The Nanny, and Entourage, and has starred in films like Three Kings, Bruce Almighty, and Pineapple Express. She has also done voice-over work for Histeria! (as meddling network censor, Lydia Karaoke, who always cuts into the show to protest over the risque content), Pinky and the Brain, and The Wild Thornberrys.

She did not reprise her role as Proctor in The Beast with a Billion Backs, where Tress MacNeille provided the voice instead.
