Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Chelsea Peretti and Pete Holmes Have a Beautiful Friendship
2:35 pm, November 1st | by Colette McIntyre
As we’ve told you before, one of the few things that brings us joy in this one big dark room we call life is discovering that our favorite funny people are IRL friends. There are so many great platonic duos that we have often dreamed of playing third wheel to — Seth Rogan and Jonah Hill, Casey Wilson and June Diane Raphael, Aziz Ansari and Kanye West — but Chelsea Peretti and Pete Holmes’ friendship is far and away the one that we most often fantasize about co-opting. Save for that of legendary bosom buddies Amy Poehler and Tina Fey of course, but they’re demigods so it hardly seems fair to compare.
Chelsea Peretti and Pete Holmes’ friendship is the Olympic torch of friendships, giving millions hope, joy, and warmth. It’s an ornate magnet carved by some good-natured and open-hearted busker that reads “Friend ships don’t have poop decks.” It’s exactly like a Precious Moments figurine — if the Precious Moments figurines that you’re familiar with feature scenes of porcelain boys and girls mirthfully berating each other. Last night Pete Holmes’ “best worst friend”/”worst best friend” stopped by his new TBS show and insulted his pants, mocked his smaller Twitter following, and revealed that she would murder him by burying him alive. They carry each other’s hearts, you guys. They carry them in their hearts.
