Storyline

The show is a mockumentary behind-the-scenes look at the Chelsea Lately (2007) show. The show's host and creative leader Chelsea Handler likes to think of her staff, especially the writing staff, as family, albeit a highly dysfunctional family where she is the only bright one amid a bunch of morons. Her writing staff is comprised of stand-up comedians who double as on-air personalities. The two special cases among her staff are her assistant, Chuy Bravo, her "Little Nugget" who basically does nothing around the set but look cute, and the show's chef, her one true family member on set, her brother Roy Handler who she treats equally as bad as her writing staff. Most of the characters, portrayed by their real life selves, are highly exaggerated versions of their real life. Written by Huggo

Borderline Horrible Production
6 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, first of all, I am a fan of Chelsea Handler and her show Chelsea Lately. I think that overall her comedy is good.

However, her spin-off 'After Lately' is disappointing to say the least. Let's be honest, it is pretty obvious this show only came about because of her fame; there is no original plot for the show and no real reason for it's existence.

The moment I saw the commercials for it I knew I was bound to find the show incredibly stupid. It's full of physical buffoonery, abuse of staff and nasty remarks, the only difference is that they're not funny. It's OK when you see it on the show 'Chelsea Lately', but on this show it just fails and looks fake.

In addition, the acting is horrible. You can tell that the cast is forcing their acting, they giggle when they deliver the lines and it's just simply amateur work. I realize they are not professional actors, nor does the show promote them as actors, but there should be a minimum level of quality of acting for a show on E! that isn't really a reality, and the quality of work is dismal.

I heard this show is supposed to be inspired or related to the popular show 'The Office', but After Lately fails at delivering witty comedy and simply gives you a sense of overall stupidity.

I am really torn to give this show such a bad review because I am a fan of Chelsea Handler, but, for her own sake, it should be canceled.
