Today we are overjoyed to welcome the wonderful Chelsea Peretti to the site to answer questions from you, our lovely readers. In the event you’re somehow unfamiliar with her, Chelsea performs stand-up regularly across the country and served as Aziz Ansari’s opening act on his recent comedy tour. She can be seen portraying Gina Linetti this fall on the Fox comedy Brooklyn Nine Nine and has also appeared on Louie, Kroll Show, Tosh.0 and on Adult Swim’s China, IL. Additionally, Chelsea has written for Parks and Recreation, Saturday Night Live, The Sarah Silverman Program, and Kroll Show.
An early embracer of the internet (seriously, go read this 2004 interview Gothamist did with her), Peretti is on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube (her “All My Exes” series is especially great), Facebook, maintains a marvelous podcast you should all subscribe to, and, of course, has a website. Finally, Chelsea is a big fan of Roy Hibbert and the Indiana Pacers and is seeking a man who is tall, “reliable and consistent.” (Call me, Chelsea…I am all of those things!)
Today’s discussion is scheduled to begin at 2pm EST and will go for about an hour. Please begin your questions with “@Chelsea” to keep things organized. We’ll be opening the thread up a couple of hours ahead of time with the goal of getting to the questions in the order they are submitted. Click on “See All Responses” or Chelsea’s name in the right side module to easily access all of her answers.
