Formerly a close friend of Louis CK who appeared often on his show "Louie" and wrote the first 2 seasons of her series "Better Things" with him. After news of CK's sexual harrassment emerged in November 2017, Adlon cut ties with him and fired her former manager (who had also managed CK). In the runup to Season 3 of "Better Things", Adlon confirmed in a profile in The New Yorker that he had not any contact with CK in a very long time, and that she was trying to not mention or reference him during the show's production.

I went from buying my own condominium and a car for myself when I was 17 on The Facts of Life (1979) to not being able to pay my rent. I was at the unemployment office all the time. I had to sell my record collection just to make ends meet. And then I started getting these voice-over jobs.
Before Lucky Louie (2006), nobody would ever cast me to play a mom or a wife; nobody ever saw me in that role, which is weird, since that's who I really am.
One of the things I learned in animation is that you never, ever want to start doing a voice that you can't sustain for four straight hours.
My roles in the '80s were, like, gender dysphoric. I wasn't pretty, I wasn't this, I wasn't that. And I am kind of butchy, you know. That's just my thing.
I don't think I have a demographic. I was at Comic-Con in San Diego recently, and I was doing a signing, and my line was all military guys, young girls, housewives and guys in wheelchairs. There was just everybody all over the place.
I have nothing but respect and admiration for Ginny as a director and friend and would kill to work with her again and again in medium.
