In interviews, people always asked if we made money off of those projects. It definitely was a different time for the Internet with much less going on.
Web users are also savvier and expect that web content can to be faked or photo-shopped because the present day internet is saturated with pranks, art projects, and viral marketing attempts.
When we did our projects the timing was kind of special — it was a sweet spot for hijinks and trickery where people sort of felt like if they saw something online it must be real.
When did you first start doing stand up? I started in orforget which. I recently talked with Nick Kroll and he mentioned how you all came up together as far as stand up in NYC. Me and Nick and our friend Roger Hailes all lived on E. Were you doing anything else at that time, or by then did you know in your mind that writing comedy, and performing comedy was the ultimate goal?
I was doing various writing jobs, little listings and stuff for the Village Voice, writing for a videogame that was supposed to be like a sitcom, random projects for some cable networks, etc. Together, we started doing a live monthly show and making short films and eventually wrote and shot a couple pilots.
How did that job come about? How do you like it? How is the writing room for a huge network show different than say, The Sarah Silverman Program? Due to my personality, it is generally easy for me to take good things for granted but I do not take for granted the feeling of cracking up at work on a daily basis. So many people hate their jobs and in this shitty economy people have to take even worse jobs that they hate even more than the usual bad jobs just for healthcare and basic needs.
I was pretty financially instable in NY for 10 years so I am happy to be working and for it to be something I love.
The Bone Zone
I was literally dancing in the street in NY when I got the call that Sarah was hiring me. This question was about the economy, right? Anyhow, you want me to compare the two shows? Parks the hours are longer and there are more snacks and writers. SSP could go very far out in terms of where a story could go and Parks is more naturalistic in tone.
That said, both have had pretty crazy moments in their stories. SSP there was a dog in the room whereas the Parks room is dogless. SSP featured a pancake obsession; Parks features a waffle obsession. SSP was brunette-ier, Parks is blonder.
A similarity is that both shows are built around comedians I respect and love. Thanks for the detail, I love waffles, hate pancakes, so makes sense in my world. How do you think the Internet has democratized comedy? You have taken advantage of it with shorts, the before mentioned websites, you have 25K followers on Twitter, etc. The Internet has been a big part of my life and career.
I love the Internet because I can be myself with zero checkpoints or creative hierarchy and I can directly reach an audience. These different web communities have certainly helped me gain new fans in different parts of the country.
TV and internet feed each other: TV gets people googling, and online fans can become motivated to watch TV appearances based on online content.chelsea peretti and brendon walsh give thanks
My only motivation to do more TV appearances is to grow my Twitter following. Your recent half hour stand up special on Comedy Central was truly so funny; it was great. After touring with that material, and the special airing, do you kind of have to start fresh now? Can you still take those jokes on the road or is it back to scratch? Only YOU would know. Who has been your favorite caller to date? And what kinds of calls are NOT passing the screening process?
The German caller named Oliver has had some real staying power. That about covers it. If you were asked to build the perfect man and you could choose from the following list of your comedian pals, what attributes of each would you choose: The sound effects on the show are just awesome and your liberal use of them is pure genius. I love the car driving off with wheels screeching sound and honk in the distance and for years have been writing that out in texts and emails so it is extremely satisfying to have it for real.
You recently interviewed Pete Holmes for his th podcast. What was it like being confined to a small room with super lovable and talkative Petey Pete for 2 hours?
Gettin' Cozy with Comedian Chelsea Peretti
Please fill in the blanks: Dragons are fun to draw when you are a kid. Peter is ultimately tolerable. But we often see comments from creepy dudes just telling you how hot you are.
Depends but mostly thankful. My friend filmmaker Tchaiko Omawale showed me the series and I loved it. Very much enjoy what they are doing. We wish them luck. Would you like to do lots more acting in the future? Quit being so enthusiastic!
The Bone Zone - All Things Comedy
What will you miss about the show? It was always a solid show. Will miss those lineups and love the UCB location. Also that is one of the main times I get to see Scott Aukerman. We made up a famous jingle backstage there. Time to make new memories. I am killing myself with pie etc. Thanks for keeping it real Chelsea. But of course the first thing you should do is Call Chelsea Peretti!
