Peterman has done voiceovers for "The Pitts" and "American Dad." She recently starred in the independent comedy feature, "Dirty Politics." Additionally, she opened for Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson on their "2 Worlds, 2 Voices" Tour. A familiar face on CMT, Peterman hosted the series CMT COMEDY STAGE and the special REDNECK DREAMS for the network. She is committed to many charities including Muhammad Ali's "Celebrity Fight Night," Habitat for Humanity, The Red Cross, and the non-profit Buzzworks Theatre Company. She is represented by APA and manager Darris Hatch.
