More than a week after announcing that Rory Scovel would headline their annual Dallas Comedy Festival, the Dallas Comedy House announced that another big name in standup will take to their black painted stage.
The Deep Ellum comedy club confirmed that Chelsea Peretti will perform two shows on their stage as part of her American Treasure Tour at 7 and 9 p.m. on Saturday, March 29. Advance tickets are currently on sale for $20 each.
Even if you aren't familiar with her standup work, her face should be familiar as one of the regular co-stars of Fox's Brooklyn Nine-Nine where she plays precinct administrator Gina Linetti. She's also one of the regular voices on the Adult Swim show China, IL. and has written for just about every modern TV comedy that matters such as Parks & Recreation, Portlandia, Saturday Night Live and Kroll Show.
