If you're an aspiring comedian, writer, actor, speaker or even entrepreneur, you'll really enjoy this hilarious episode. If you’re a fan of comedy, you know Chelsea Peretti. If you’re a fan of the FOX hit, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” you know her as the self-absorbed unfiltered Gina Linetti. But you may not know that before rising to sitcom stardom, Peretti appeared on multiple comedy shows, created her own projects, and was a writer for “Parks and Recreation,” and “Saturday Night Live.” Last year she landed a coveted hour long comedy special on Netflix, One of the Greats, which was met with critical acclaim, and she has been featured on multiple “Comedians to Watch” lists. With such an impressive resume, you might expect some diva airs, but there were none to be found.
When we arrived at her dressing room on the historic lot in Studio City, California, the rising Comedy star was grabbing a quick bite to eat. She greeted us casually, grabbed her small shaggy dog and her lunch, and slipped out so we could set up.
How did Peretti get here? After all, If the odds of succeeding as a professional comedian are bleak, they are downright abysmal for women in comedy. In the sparse room lined with quirky sweaters and sky high shoes, she answered that and more for us, with the expected hilarious non-answers included.
