You have to start somewhere and for this now famous face, she started on the cover of Rockford Magazine.

In the June 1986 issue of Rockford Magazine, a young Natasha Leggero was featured on the cover.

Leggero, originally from Rockford, said in a #tbt Facebook post late last week she "used to be a local model" and it's "the only time I've ever held any sports equipment."

Landing on the cover of Rockford Magazine obviously did wonders for her career. Since that issue was launched in the mid 80s, Leggero has been in many TV shows and movies and appeared on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert just a few weeks ago. She also made a small shoutout to the Rockford Public Library.

Leggero currently stars in two different TV shows. Dice, Sunday nights on Showtime and Another Period, currently between seasons airing on Comedy Central.
