Chelsea Peretti held a book signing... without having written a book

Chelsea Peretti is having a busy week. Her stand-up special, One of the Greats, premieres on Netflix this weekend, and she has been doing some stand-up shows in anticipation for it. She even held a book signing to meet with fans after one of her sets.

The only problem is… Chelsea Peretti hasn’t written a book.

On Nov. 10, Peretti tweeted out that she would sign books—any book in fact—after her show that evening.

Fans heeded her call, bringing everything from Tina Fey’s Bossypants to Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dollaway to a copy of the newspaper The Urth News. BuzzFeed compiled a few of the strangest books the comic signed, along with pictures of the messages she left. If you missed out, fear not—Peretti seems willing to do more signings in the future.


Until then, Peretti can be seen in One of the Greats on Netflix starting this Friday, or on Brooklyn Nine Nine, where she continues to train for her next impromptu meet-and-greet event—a dance recital.
