Chelsea Peretti on Wolf Mode, Writing for Kroll Show, and Season Two of Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Better get used to hearing the name Chelsea Peretti.

The comedian, writer, and actress is primed to blow up. Why? Well, to borrow a phrase from her comedy comrade Nick Kroll, first and first mostly, she's hilarious. Her work in the writer's room on shows including Parks and Recreation and The Sarah Silverman Program and as an actress on Kroll Show (where she's also a writer) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine demonstrate her love of pop culture satire and ability to deliver straight-faced, reality TV-inspired insanity.

Peretti is working on her first-ever one-hour comedy special, which she'll tape in San Francisco on June 13. Before stopping by Stand Up Live on Friday, May 30, as part of her American Treasure Tour, Peretti talked with Jackalope Ranch about her role as Gina on the Golden Globe-winning comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, her passion for the Kroll Show sketch Cake Train, and what we can expect from her upcoming one-hour special.
