Chelsea Peretti says there’s a TV character she’d be willing to date, but she’d better not let him know about how overrated she thinks pizza is.

Chelsea Peretti has some advice for aspiring stand-up comedians: Stage time, stage time, stage time, stage time — oh, and stage time. And yes, she realizes how irritating repeating “stage time” is.
Peretti currently stars as Gina on Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine and just released a stand-up special on Netflix titled Chelsea Peretti: One of the Greats, but, just like any of the greats, Peretti had to get her start somewhere — and that start was on a stage where she made poorly received jokes about the always-popular subject of crop dusting.
Along the way, Peretti’s looked to people like Amy Poehler, Parker Posey, and Sarah Silverman for inspiration, and right now is watching up-and-coming comedians like Yassir Lester and Esther Povitsky. READ FULL STORY
Chelsea Peretti is having a busy week. Her stand-up special, One of the Greats, premieres on Netflix this weekend, and she has been doing some stand-up shows in anticipation for it. She even held a book signing to meet with fans after one of her sets.
The only problem is… Chelsea Peretti hasn’t written a book.
New movies, television seasons, and comedy specials arriving on Netflix in November have been announced.
Right now, Chelsea Peretti is most known as the always-weird Gina on Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine—but she’s also a skilled stand-up comedian who has a special coming to Netflix in November.
In her hour-long set, Peretti covers a variety of topics ranging from intimidating dogs to fashion crimes: “Do you guys think it’s worse to wear a fedora or kill 15 people?” she asks the audience in the special’s trailer. She also demonstrates the polite way for a woman to eat a banana in public, which turns out to be not very polite at all. READ FULL STORY
Caveat: There’s no guarantee that Comedy Central will program another topical nightly talk show in The Colbert Report‘s place when Stephen Colbert leaves to take over CBS’s Late Show in 2015.
After all, Colbert isn’t just another late night gabfest — it’s a parody of a very specific type of news program, starring a character who’s a very specific caricature of folks like Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh. (Limbaugh, naturally, has already spoken out against Colbert’s move to CBS, saying that the network has “declared war on the heartland of America.”) It would be strange and sad to see Comedy Central try to capture similar lightning in a similar bottle by ordering another show that parodies cable news the same way Colbert did.
That said, I can’t see the network scrambling to find a whole week’s worth of new programming for the 11:30 timeslot — and if it’s going to go with another nightly program, some sort of talk show revolving around some sort of central comedic figure would make the most sense. So, with that in mind, here are eight options for Colbert replacements — both realistic and more pie-in-the-sky.
Will Ferrell, Jon Hamm, Sarah Silverman, and Aziz Ansari perform at the 'We Hate Hurricanes' benefit
“I didn’t realize the full on hatred people had for hurricanes,” Jon Hamm said to the sold out Club Nokia in Los Angeles on Monday night.
Alongside his friend Adam Scott, Hamm was there to host the “We Hate Hurricanes” benefit, a comedy fundraiser for the victims of Hurricane Sandy with proceeds going to the non-profit AmeriCares. For under $50, the audience was treated to an A-List variety show featuring a performance by Beck and standup sets by Sarah Silverman, Chelsea Peretti, and Aziz Ansari.
The biggest surprise of the night happened early on, when Hamm and Scott called someone named Dave Duncan to the stage. Click past the jump to read more.
