Chelsea Peretti Officially Leaving 'Parks & Recreation'

Also in today's Parks & Recreation walkthrough, Michael Schur was asked about Parks writer Chelsea Peretti: "Chelsea’s leaving our show, sadly. She wants to focus on her stand-up career, and ideally, I think, develop a show for herself." Chelsea had alluded to her leaving during some podcast appearances but now it's official. I guess the question is: Does Joe Mande + Megan Amram = Chelsea Peretti?

    Aww that's kind of a bummer but it would be awesome if she got her own show eventually.

    I saw her in 2002 when she was on the make, and her standup was among the best in New York. We could use someone like that now.

    sadly, the show has been noticeably weaker since Chelsea and Harris departed

    Woman don't do stand-up. Ellen is a lesbian, she doesn't count.
