Chelsea Handler Talks Hillary Clinton, Says Time is Right for "a Woman to Be Dominating"

26 July 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

After a bumpy start that saw executive producer Bill Wolff shown the door after just three weeks, Chelsea Handler has begun to find her way with Chelsea, a Netflix talk show conceived as a platform for her to discuss issues that really matter to her. (Contrast that to her old E! series Chelsea Lately, which traded in celebrity gossip and wisecracks and featured a little-person sidekick — all of which, presumably, did not.)  True to her word, in less than three months on the air, Handler, 41, has already hosted a number of political heavyweights on Chelsea — Nancy

Hari Kondabolu and W. Kamau Bell Get Political In New Comedy Podcast

27 June 2016 2:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“The revolution will be podcasted and it will be hilarious,” says W. Kamau Bell, one half of the funny duo behind the new podcast “Politically Re-Active with W. Kamau Bell and Hari Kondabolu,” which premieres June 29 on Slate’s podcast network, Panoply. The comedians and friends will speak to special guest politicos and comedians in each 20-25 minute episode. Each episode will have a specific theme and will include signature comedy segments.

Bell calls himself a “socio-political comedian,” and was the host of the short-lived FX comedy series “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell,” for which Kondabolu served as a writer and correspondent. Boasting Chris Rock as executive producer, the show hired all stand-up comedians as writers, including up-and-comers Aparna Nancherla (recently named one of Variety’s Top Ten Comics to Watch) and Guy Branum (“Awkward,” “Chelsea Lately”).

TV Review: ‘Chelsea’

12 May 2016 12:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One thing sets “Chelsea” apart right off the bat: Chelsea Handler, whose new Netflix show debuted Wednesday, is one of the few women in late-night comedy. Like Samantha Bee, whose “Full Frontal” has already gained a loyal following, Handler’s show won’t air four or five nights a week: Three will be her limit.

Of course, it’d be possible to have a hair-splitting debate about whether “Chelsea” belongs in the “late-night” discussion at all. Her program will arrive Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at midnight Pacific Time, but the chat show is a worldwide property for Netflix, so each episode will be released simultaneously in every country in which the company operates. That said, even if new episodes turn up in Australia in the late afternoon, “Chelsea” still has enough of the hallmarks of a late-night show to be judged on those merits.

Handler does try, here and there, »

Chelsea Handler makes a grand global promise to ‘free the talkshow’

9 May 2016 7:03 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

In the first look at her new Netflix chat show, Handler vows to change all the rules

The joy of Chelsea Lately, Chelsea Handler’s talk show that aired in the Us from 2007 to 2014, was that it took on the most superficial of issues and never tried to be more than that. Chelsea and a panel of comics would make crass jokes about pop culture, celebrity, reality shows and other topics the old dudes of late-night TV would turn their noses up at. But with the premiere of the trailer for Chelsea, the three-night-a-week talkshow that starts on Netflix on 11 May, Handler says she’s going to change all that.

The boldest claim the trailer makes is that it is going to “free the talkshow.” Now, that was evident as soon as she made her deal with the streaming platform. It couldn’t air a show every night at 11.35pm, »

Chelsea Handler on Her Brother's Untimely Death, Dealing with Self-Doubt and Reinventing the Talk Show

6 May 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Chelsea Handler is so successful it's hard to imagine her anything less than confident. The star, whose new Netflix talk show Chelsea debuts on May 11, told People and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle recently that she isn't always sure of herself."There are times I felt insecure or not sure, I'm unsure of myself, or I get nervous, but nerves are good," Handler began. "I try and embrace all those things. I try and embrace the times where I'm not sure of myself or I'm like, 'Is this going to work? Is this going to land?' Every time »

Chelsea Handler Slams E! (Again): ‘I Wasn’t Impressed With Anybody’

18 April 2016 7:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Chelsea Handler does some E! bashing in the May cover story for Fast Company.

The comedian is no stranger to criticizing her former network, which aired her late-night talk show “Chelsea Lately” for seven seasons, but has kicked it up a few notches since landing a mega deal with Netflix. She’s currently promoting her newest venture with the streaming service, her talk show “Chelsea.”

“It was incredibly frustrating,” she said of working at E!. “You’re a reflection of the company you keep, and I wasn’t impressed with anybody. The people I was working with on the network side, they never could think big. I just wanted to leave, to be somewhere else.”

Handler, who parted ways with E! in August of 2014, said she was drawn to the creative freedom that the streaming site allowed.

“When we were on the network, I can’t tell you how many »

Chelsea Handler Announces Title for Netflix Talk Show: ‘Chelsea’

17 March 2016 11:49 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One day after releasing a handwritten letter to herself, which divulged details on her upcoming Netflix talk show, Chelsea Handler had a Periscope Q&A with her fans on Thursday morning — and she finally announced the title of her show: “Chelsea.”

“Good morning everybody. Or good evening,” Handler said during the live streaming session, in which she was seated next to Gloria Allred in a press conference-esque setup, though Allred never said a word and there was no explanation for her being there. “I have a few announcements to make and then I will take a few questions and probably a few Vicodin.”

Announcing her show’s title, Handler showed off her signature sarcastic comedic chops, saying: “We thought long and hard about the title for my new Netflix show, and there was a whole team at Netflix who worked on it; we hired a digital department and some small »

16 March 2016 8:24 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Chelsea Handler has put pen to paper to announce the premiere date and format details of her upcoming Netflix talk show.

The series will bow May 11 and run as half-hour episodes released Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Handler is still collecting suggestions from fans via social media for the title of the program.

Handler announced the news via a handwritten memo to herself that Netflix distributed Wednesday morning as a press release.

In the note, Handler emphasizes that the show will feature field reporting and interviews with public figures. “You’ll be traveling around the world and learning new things, all courtesy of Netflix,” Handler writes to herself. “Treat this as an opportunity to get the college education you forgot to get.”

She also revealed her “dream guest list” of First Lady Michelle Obama, Pope Francis and Arnold Schwarzanegger’s maid. “When interviewing respected public figures, ask yourself, ‘What would Byron Allen do? »

All the Times We've Seen Chelsea Handler's Boobs - So Far

25 February 2016 11:02 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Chelsea Handler has basically been living in a topless version of Green Eggs and Ham - much like Sam I Am, she'll go topless on a house, with a mouse, in a box, or near a fox (and even at the top of the Twitter offices). The comic and former Chelsea Lately host has been challenging Instagram's nudity guidelines by posting photos and videos of herself sans shirt over the past two years, and though she has come under fire for the racy snaps (a few of them caused her account to be suspended), there's really nothing that will stop the notoriously outspoken star from baring her boobs on social media. However you feel about Chelsea, her brand of comedy, or her breasts, you have to admit that her topless photos are way more funny than they are scandalous - seriously, standing on top of a snow-covered mountain with no shirt on? »
