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 he’s apparently followed her around while she’s done stand-up, and now her stand-up acts are selling out because… people think they might run into Chris.
Dating Chris Evans is doing wonders for Jenny Slate’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!
“Jenny recently performed two sold-out sets in Boston,” reveals an insider, who suspects ticket sales are up solely because fans are hoping to catch a glimpse of Captain American in the flesh – since he showed up at the Sinclair in Cambridge’s Harvard Square to cheer on his girlfriend Aug. 7.
“Chris is super-supportive of Jenny,” adds a source. “If being with him gives her career a boost, he’s more than happy to help out.”

It IS annoying that Star is attributing a woman’s success to her boyfriend, but part of me is also like, “Well, she DID hook up with Captain America” I’m not saying Slate was an untalented nobody, but come on. It’s an indie comedy in and of itself.
