What Is Chelsea Peretti's Net Worth?

Chelsea Peretti is an American stand-up comedian, actress, and writer who has a net worth of $20 million. Chelsea Peretti is perhaps best known for starring as Gina Linetti on the Fox series "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." She's also notable for being married to Jordan Peele. Her net worth listed on this page is mostly attributable to Jordan, who in 2019 signed a $300-400 million overall deal with Universal Pictures. Peele was reportedly inspired by experiences with Peretti's family in writing "Get Out," the 2017 thriller that earned $255 million at the box office and launched Jordan's career to the stratosphere.

Early Life

Chelsea Peretti was born on February 20, 1978, in Oakland, California. Her mother was a schoolteacher, and her father was a criminal defense lawyer. Peretti has two brothers and a sister. One of her brothers is tech entrepreneur Jonah Peretti, who co-founded BuzzFeed as well as "The Huffington Post." Peretti attended elementary school with future "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" co-star Andy Samberg.

Chelsea attended The College Preparatory School in Oakland, then she moved to New York City in 1996 to attend Barnard College. Peretti spent one year abroad (during her junior year) at the Royal Holloway University of London. She graduated from Barnard in 2000.


While living in New York, Peretti made short films with Variety SHAC, a comedy troupe she formed in 2004 alongside Andrea Rosen, Shonali Bhowmik, and Heather Lawless. That same year, she made her first television appearance on a show called "Comedy Lab."

Between 2008 and 2013, she appeared in 88 episodes of "The Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest" as a comedic commentator.

In 2010, she appeared in an episode of the FX show "Louie".

Throughout this period, Chelsea also served as a writer on various programs, including "The Sarah Silverman Program," "WTF with Marc Maron," and even "Saturday Night Live" (for two episodes).

In 2014, "Paste Magazine" ranked Peretti's Twitter #75 on its "75 Best Twitter Accounts" list.

From 2011 to 2013, Peretti provided voices on the animated series "China, IL." She also had a recurring role on the sketch comedy program "Kroll Show."

Most notably, Chelsea played the part of Gina Linetti on 107 episodes of the Fox series "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." She made the unexpected decision to leave Brooklyn Nine-Nine during its sixth season.

Peretti has appeared on several podcasts, such as "Doug Loves Movies," "How Did This Get Made?," and "You Made it Weird with Pete Holmes." She has also made appearances on "The Lavender Hour," "The Bone Zone with Brendon Walsh and Randy Liedtke," and "Comedy Bang! Bang!" In October 2012, Peretti launched her own podcast, a call-in show titled "Call Chelsea Peretti."

She has also produced content for publications like "The Huffington Post," "Playgirl," "The Village Voice," "Details," and "American Theatre Magazine."

Peretti starred in director Andrea Dorfman's "anti-rom-com" "Spinster," which was released in 2019. She also lent her voice to "Sing 2".


Chelsea released an EP titled "Foam and Flotsam," a musical comedy concept album. Peretti also turned in musical collaborations with Kool Kojak, songs that feature talented guests like Reggie Watts, Terry Crews, and even Juliette Lewis. The album is composed of five songs and contains deeply evocative lyrics like "How you gonna show up late but have a coffee in your hand?" and prose examples like "Yeah, I wanna drink coffee with you, but I'm gonna need a soundproof bathroom." Peretti's musical offerings have been described as "whimsical yet depressive…[slamming] you into a wall and then [sliding] you up that wall and [releasing] you into a new galaxy."
