She is a New York Times best-selling author for her 2019 book, Little Weirds, which is a critically acclaimed collection of non-fiction, personal essays.
Her first stand-up special, Jenny Slate: Stage Fright was released in October 2019 and was nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award for “Best Comedy Special.” The hour is a mix of stage time, funny stories about adulthood and conversations with family in her childhood home.
