Chelsea Peretti Net Worth $500,000

Peretti with her brother, Jonah, who grew up to be the founder of the popular web magazine “Buzzfeed.com”, was born and raised in Oakland, California into an Italian-American (father) and Jewish (mother) family. Peretti attended The College Preparatory School in Oakland, and in 2000 graduated from Barnard College when they moved to New York, with a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts.

While in New York, Peretti started out as a waitress to survive in the city, but her talent started to emerge when she joined the group Variety SHAC in 2004 with Shonali Bhowmik, a group of four talented comedians that creates small comedy films or sketches. Peretti made a couple of short films with the group before making another move, but her net worth was established.

When Peretti decided to move to Los Angeles, her talent in comedy was noticed and her visibility in various television shows, so her net worth rose too. Peretti appeared in shows like “Louie”, “Tosh.0”, “The Sarah Silverman Program”, and “TruTV Presents: World’s Dumbest”. She also played multiple characters on Adult Swim’s “China, IL”.

Aside from performing in front of an audience, Peretti is also a gifted writer, working for prominent shows like “Parks and Recreation”, Saturday Night Live”, “The Sarah Silverman Program”, “Portlandia”, and “Kroll Show”. Peretti has also written for magazines like “The Village Voice”, “Details”, “Playgirl”, “Jest”, “American Theatre Magazine” and “The Huffington Post” – all add to her net worth.

The comedienne increased her online following and maintained her net worth by doing podcast shows, including “Doug Loves Movies”, “How Did This Get Made?” and “The Todd Glass Show” to name a few. In 2012, she decided to start her own podcast show entitled “Call Chelsea Peretti”; her weekly show gained much popularity and became number one in iTunes comedy podcasts.

In 2013, Peretti joined the cast of the comedy show “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” playing the character of Gina Linetti, the 99th Precinct’s civil administrator, making her a constant face on television. Her character in the hit television series garnered her a nomination in 2014 for Favorite Comedy Supporting Actress – Television for the 2104 American Comedy Awards. Her performance, along with the other casts, also gained a Golden Globe win for the show in 2014, for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

Today, Peretti continues to perform on stage, performing nightly in Los Angeles at The Comedy Store, Largo, UCB, and the Improv on Melrose. She also engages in several web projects like the website “BlackPeopleLovesUs.com” and her “Making Friends” and “All My Exes” web series.

In terms of her personal life, Peretti has been with actor Jordan Peele since 2013, and was recently engaged in November of 2015.

Quotes

#Quote
1I'm thankful for my grandmothers. One kook, one straight-shooter, they led me by example. They taught me that women are real human beings, not idealized one-dimensional accessories.
2A lot of comedians will say, 'My first five years I was just doing 'Eddie Murphy' and then I found my voice'. I don't feel like that. What confounds me about that statement is, I learned not to plagiarize in elementary school. I don't understand how it's possible to be doing someone else's material for five years and not feel any guilt or awareness that this is thievery. But people do it, and comedians tend to have a fair amount of compassion for it.
3Working on 'Parks' was like heaven because everyone there was just intimidatingly intelligent and funny, and we would have these hilarious debates about really tangential things. It was inspiring because I felt really challenged to be my best.
4I performed after 9/11 for relief workers down by Ground Zero. There were these men just coming back, and they were voraciously hungry. They were heroes, pulling rubble, and I was a new comic trying to go blue just so I could get some laughs.
5I'm obsessed with nature and living in the wild, which I just think is crazy. Imagine if a bear attacked you! That's an actual possible way you could die.
6It's hard to bury your head in Los Angeles. People come up to you and say, 'Hey, I saw your picture on a bus.' It's tricky: You're excited by the possibilities, but you don't want to get too crazy.
7It's pretty satisfying to use an image when you don't have a great articulate response. And to be able to customize emoji? Imagine if you were a car enthusiast and you were able to create a car from scratch. That's what this is like for me. I'm an emoji enthusiast.
8We went to a very small high school. It was, like, in a wooded house; it was a weird school. I hung out with a lot of guys in high school, and I did theater with a few of my close girlfriends.
9So many people: Lucille Ball is the earliest incarnation of a woman I thought was funny, Joan Rivers, Roseanne Barr, Carol Burnett, Gilda Radner, down to current times, where you have Amy Poehler, Tina Fey and Kristen Wiig.
10When I was in New York, I got to see Joan Rivers do an hour of material, and it blew my mind. I don't remember how old she was at the time, but she just had this edgy hour that had so much funny stuff in it, and she was so fearless. If you only watch her on the red carpet, you don't get a sense of what a legendary stand-up comedian she is.
11'Chels-emojis' are in the works. I use emojis heavily in life, and I think a lot of people do. There are a number that are frustratingly absent - you know how there's kind of a generic white man and a generic white woman? I just want to put a generic black man and a generic black woman.
12I only do private room karaoke where it's just me and one of my closest girlfriends. My mom always said I could really belt songs out, and the Dixie Chicks feed that encouragement.
13It's really irritating. Even people who like my work sometimes come up to me and say, 'I usually don't like female comedians, but your material is great!' It makes the job prospect more daunting. Funny is funny, you know?
14On tour, it's either call ex-boyfriends or tweet a lot. You're just looking for any proof that you're not completely alone.
15People see technology as something that will ruin society and culture, but I've always embraced technology.
16Sometimes when I'm nervous, that's when the most interesting things happen.
17I'm Jewish and Italian, and I lucked out and got the nose of both cultures.
18I would say that I have a love-hate relationship with almost everything in my life, including stand-up.
19I really want to interview Larry David.
20I think that with podcasts, a lot of things are about fostering and having a direct connection with the community.
21I barely watch TV. Somehow, I make it work with just the Internet. On TV, there's always so much crap, and you have to flip around.
22When I was little, people would ask what my favorite color was, and I never knew. I find it's really hard to make decisive 'best' answers on what the 'best' of something is.
23I do feel like guys feel pressure to be funny with me, which is kind of annoying. It's a turn-off if someone's trying hard to be funny because it feels like they're auditioning for a comedy job or something. It doesn't feel romantic to me. I get so much comedy from my life that, from a guy, I'm more looking for something sweet or romantic.
