Jenny Slate        

Actress, Comedian, Author & Creator of the "Marcel the Shell" Short Films; Known for "Parks & Recreation," "Big Mouth," & "The Secret Life of Pets"

Jenny Slate is an actress, author, and comedian, who co-wrote, produced, and voiced the Oscar-nominated short film Marcel the Shell With Shoes On. After several years of viral success, a feature-length version recently premiered at Telluride Film Festival and was acquired by A24.

Slate’s breakout role came by way of her leading performance in Obvious Child, for which she won the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Actress in a Comedy. She will next be seen opposite client Charlie Day in Amazon’s I Want You Back, written and produced by clients Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger. She will also be seen in Dan Kwan’s Everything Everywhere All at Once for A24, opposite Michelle Yeoh. Her additional feature credits include Sofia Coppola’s On the Rocks, client Ruben Fleischer’s Venom, client Marc Webb’s Gifted, and Drew Pearce’s Hotel Artemis.

Slate’s comedy special Stage Fright was released on Netflix to rave reviews and exemplified her ability to reframe comedy’s relationship to mental health using humor to hold space for depression, anxiety, and fear. She has had several notable television performances in such series as Parks and Recreation, House of Lies, Bored to Death, and Girls. Additionally, Slate wrote the national bestselling novel Little Weirds, which Vanity Fair named one of its “31 Great Quarantine Reads.”
