Jenny Slate and Chris Evans have been banging for probably close to a year, but they’ve only been official for a couple months. That being said, while I think dating Jenny has given Chris some street cred, Chris is giving Jenny…some of that A list cache. Why? Because heÃ¢â¬â¢s apparently followed her around while sheÃ¢â¬â¢s done stand-up, and now her stand-up acts are selling out becauseÃ¢â¬Â¦ people think they might run into Chris.
Dating Chris Evans is doing wonders for Jenny SlateÃ¢â¬â¢s career. In the not-so-distant past, the stand-up comedian, 34, had to constantly remind fans that tickets were still available for purchase the day of her show, but not anymore!
Ã¢â¬ÅJenny recently performed two sold-out sets in Boston,Ã¢â¬Â reveals an insider, who suspects ticket sales are up solely because fans are hoping to catch a glimpse of Captain American in the flesh Ã¢â¬â since he showed up at the Sinclair in CambridgeÃ¢â¬â¢s Harvard Square to cheer on his girlfriend Aug. 7.
Ã¢â¬ÅChris is super-supportive of Jenny,Ã¢â¬Â adds a source. Ã¢â¬ÅIf being with him gives her career a boost, heÃ¢â¬â¢s more than happy to help out.Ã¢â¬Â

It IS annoying that Star is attributing a woman’s success to her boyfriend, but part of me is also like, Ã¢â¬ÅWell, she DID hook up with Captain AmericaÃ¢â¬Â IÃ¢â¬â¢m not saying Slate was an untalented nobody, but come on. It’s an indie comedy in and of itself.
