Lauren Lapkus Is “The Single Celeb” For Netflix’s New Special, “The Characters”

Meet Whitney Peeps – the very strange star of The Single Celeb. Let’s just all take a moment to absorb the name “Whitney Peeps.”

Cool, everybody good? Let’s continue.

Peeps is the brainchild of comedian Lauren Lapkus, and makes an appearance in the new Netflix special, The Characters. In the vein of HBO and Netflix stand-up specials for comics, The Characters highlights sketch comedians on the rise. Each performer gets exactly one half hour to do whatever they please – there are no rules or expectations. Lapkus is known for her unique and zany characters on the Upright Citizens Brigade Stage, and Peeps is no exception.
