Chelsea Peretti and Cora Frazier Are Guest Writing at ‘SNL’ These Next Two Weeks


SNL is bringing in some new guest writers: standup Chelsea Peretti and humor writer Cora Frazier. The duo will be serving as writers for the next two episodes, hosted by Justin Bieber and Christoph Waltz, respectively. Chelsea Peretti wrote on the first season of Comedy Central’s Kroll Show and left her writing gig on Parks and Recreation last year after two seasons on the show. This is the first TV writing credit for Cora Frazier, who has had pieces published in The New Yorker and McSweeney’s. Peretti instagrammed a photo of herself writing at SNL on Monday, with the caption, “1st day of school! Guest writing at SNL for two weeks if I get fired this photo is getting deleted and we will never speak of it again.” If Peretti gets fired, I’ll follow suit and delete this news post, and we’ll all never speak of it again. Sound good?
