Adlon was born in New York City, New York, the daughter of TV comedy writer-producer (and author of comic books and science fiction pulp novels) Donald "Don" Maxwell Segall (1933–1994) and Marina L. Segall. Her father produced The Dave Garroway Show, which became AM New York, and then The Today Show. He was a page at NBC with Gil Cates. He wrote erotic fiction under various pseudonyms, including Troy Conway. Adlon's father was from a Jewish family from Boston, Massachusetts, and her mother is English. Her mother converted to Judaism. Adlon said her parents met at the USO in Paris.
As a child, Adlon lived in the Carnegie House building at 100 West 57th Street. She has said that she and her family lived bi-coastally, moving between Los Angeles and New York because her father was a journeyman writer and producer for TV. She started performing at age nine; one of her father's friends had a radio studio, so she would do voice over work there, and while in Los Angeles, she did acting work. She attended Sarah Lawrence College for a semester. After moving to Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles, she shared a house with Anna Gunn.
Adlon said voice-overs saved her career. As successful as her child-actress years had been, she struggled to find parts in her 20s.
Adlon voiced Arthur Read in Arthur's Thinking Games. Adlon's best known role is playing Bobby Hill on the animated TV show King of the Hill, for which she won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance in 2002. Though she is mostly known for voicing young boys, Adlon has voiced two girl characters (both of which have boylike qualities): Margaret "Moose" Pearson in Pepper Ann and Ashley Spinelli in Recess.
Notable live-action roles include Girl Joey in the 1984 teen comedy film Bad Manners, Kelly Affinado on The Facts of Life, Marcy Runkle on Showtime's Californication, and Pamela on FX's Louie (she is also a consulting producer for the show).
Adlon was nominated for an Annie Award for her role as Otto Osworth on Cartoon Network's Time Squad. In 2006–07, she played the voice of Andy in Cartoon Network's Squirrel Boy animated series and co-starred with Louis C.K. as his wife in the short-lived HBO sitcom Lucky Louie. She also stars as the friend of Louie (a fictional character based on himself, Louis C.K.) in his FX single-camera show, Louie. She is in episodes of seasons 1, 2, 4, and 5. For the 5th season, she received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.
Adlon voiced Pajama Sam in the video games Pajama Sam: No Need to Hide When It's Dark Outside, Pajama Sam 2: Thunder and Lightning Aren't So Frightening, Pajama Sam 3: You Are What You Eat from Your Head to Your Feet, and Pajama Sam's Games to Play on Any Day.
In 2015, FX gave a pilot order for Better Things, which is a comedy created by and starring Adlon. She plays an actress raising three daughters. The pilot was written by Adlon and Louis C.K. who also directed it. It was picked up to a 10-episode series on August 7, 2015. The show, which premiered on September 8, 2016, is semi-autobiographical. Adlon received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Better Things.
As of December 2016, she is doing the voice of Baby Halley on The Big Bang Theory.
In 1996, Adlon married Felix O. Adlon, the son of German director Percy Adlon. They divorced in 2010; he currently lives in Germany. They have three daughters, to whom Adlon has said she is a single parent.
Adlon splits her time between Manhattan, New York and Los Angeles, California.
Adlon is Jewish.
