Chelsea Peretti Is Enjoying the Benefits of the #MeToo Movement: “That’s What It Took for People to Watch a Female Comedian’s Hour Special”

Here’s a clip from Chelsea Peretti’s visit to last night’s Conan, where she gets honest with O’Brien about the very specific way she’s benefitted from the #MeToo movement. “A weird thing that I’ve noticed is an uptick in people watching my one-hour special, and it feels like they’re searching for people who aren’t rapists to watch their standup,” Peretti says. “It’s like that’s what it took for people to watch a female comedian’s hour special. They’re like, ‘Okay that’s a criminal, that’s a criminal…eh, I guess I’ll try this.’ It’s been great.” Watch some more clips from the interview below:
