Comedy Central Presents: Chelsea Peretti

If you missed the debut of Chelsea Peretti's first half-hour Comedy Central Presents, which aired over the weekend, then you can relive it through recaps. Peretti opened by acknowledging her "weird actractiveness level" with the audience, as they're apt to be judging her on her looks before she gets them with the jokes.

Here she is acting out her feelings toward talking during sex, as well as how some men describe women as "screamers" or "a wildcat" in bed: Peretti also showed off a recording of some dirty talk.

You see what he's doing here? As Adam Sandler's new movie begs you, just go with it. From CDR's Scott Auckerman: ‚ÄúI‚Äôve seen a comedian do ten characters before, but usually that is over a period of years, sometimes decades. To be honest, I don‚Äôt think he‚Äôll be able to do it, but we‚Äôre willing to give him the stage to try. If he crashes and burns, then that will be entertaining too.‚Äù For his part, Besser says his character parade will include already-popular versions of the Pope and Bjork, but also introduce several new people to laugh along with. ‚ÄúIf any of my characters don‚Äôt work,‚Äù...
