Comedianne and born-and-bred Oaklander Chelsea Peretti, one of the stars of award-winning sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, is taping her new comedy standup special this Friday the th-th-th-13th at the Palace of Fine Arts.Peretti is a breakout star on the aforementioned sitcom as Gina, a character that was created with Peretti's comedic voice in mind, she says, by show creators Mike Schur and Dan Goor. That voice -- smart, quirky, absurd -- has been developing comedically for years and is now, for the first time, attached to a face recognizable from prime time television. Peretti previously worked with Schur and Goor on their show Parks and Recreation, for which she'd written before leaving in 2012 to focus on her standup and her acting. Perhaps you've seen her on Kroll Show on Comedy Central, on which she's played a variety of characters, such as aspiring hip hop singer Farley.

She also has a delightfully bizarre podcast, Call Chelsea Peretti, which features a call-in format that lends itself to the unpredictable.
