Lots of comedians we see are male, which sometimes makes us a little bored. It is Chelsea Handler that makes things different from what we often think of comedians. Not only is she an amazing comedian, but she also surpasses many male ones. Brassy, Beautiful and candid are precise words to describe Chelsea. She has a cutting wit to back up her good looks as a movie stars.
Chelsea Handler was born in Livingston, New Jersey. She was the youngest of six children of a Jewish father and Mormon mother. Her large family allowed her to hone her comedic skills, and Handler hit the LA stage at the age of 21 with flair. Most of her material involves the topic of men, drinking or Handler’s annoyance with the people around her.
Handler soon found herself thrust onto the TV screen with spots in shows like Spy TV, The Practice and My Wife and Kids. She became a regular on the hit shot Girls Behaving Badly, which pretty much describes the subject of Handler’s standup anyway. She is a regular on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno as well. She got her own show The Chelsea Handler Show on E! in 2006, which led to another show on E! called Chelsea Lately.
Handler released her best-selling book My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands in 2005 and chronicles her series of hilarious encounters. Whether it is a liaison with a little person or a tryst with a stripper in Vegas, her torrid tales have become a hot item for her fans. She even delves into how her colorful friends lent a hand in her hookups and the uncomfortable role her family plays.
Her newest book, Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea, came out in early 2008 and is a hilarious portrayal of the life of Handler. She recounts memories from her childhood as well as stories from her relationships and rise to fame. From her experience babysitting someone older than her to broadening her horizons by dating a redhead, this book is another laugh-out-loud classic for fans to enjoy.
Along with her show, she has also been on In the Motherhood, a show about moms, with Leah Remini and Jenny McCarthy. Chelsea Handler can’t help but be funny. She has told reporters that her family is more impressed with her books than her standup because her standup is the same person she is at home.
