Jenny Slate is a stand-up comedian, actor, author and creator. She most recently finished shooting the comedy I WANT YOU BACK (Amazon Studios) opposite Charlie Day which will be globally released on Prime Video February 11, 2022.  She co-starred in Sofia Coppola’s ON THE ROCKS as well as Sony’s VENOM. Slate made her feature film debut in Gillian Robespierre’s critically-acclaimed OBVIOUS CHILD, released by A24. Slate won a Critics’ Choice Award for “Best Actress in a Comedy” and was also nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for “Best Female Lead Actor” and a Gotham Award for “Breakthrough Actor.” Slate starred opposite Edie Falco and John Turturro in Robespierre’s LANDLINE (Amazon Studios), and opposite Chris Evans and Octavia Spencer in Marc Webb’s GIFTED (Fox Searchlight). On television she is beloved for her roles on PARKS AND RECREATION and KROLL SHOW. Slate is well-known for her animation voice work including the role of Assistant Mayor Dawn Bellweather of Disney’s ZOOTOPIA, Gidget of Illumination’s THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS, and Miss Nanny in MUPPET BABIES as well as Judy Tobin in THE GREAT NORTH. Slate also reprised the role of Gidget in THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2.  Jenny is the co-creator and the voice of the character “Marcel The Shell” from the popular online short films, which has been viewed over 30 million times. It then was turned into a New York Times best-selling children’s book series. Most recently, MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES ON was adapted into a feature length film which debuted to incredible reviews at the Telluride Film Festival. Slate’s latest book, “Little Weirds,” released by the Hachette Book Group and excerpted in The New Yorker twice, is a critically acclaimed collection of non-fiction, personal pieces, which became an instant New York Times best-seller. In 2019 Slate also released her first stand-up special, JENNYSLATE: STAGE FRIGHT for Netflix, which was nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award for Best Comedy Special.  Slate is a graduate of Columbia University.
