My favorite Jersey Girl – Chelsea Handler is BACK!
With a new book in stores March 9th and a tour to go along with it kicking off next week….I’m not sure I can wait another minute!!!!
You MIGHT remember Chelsea from that show on Oxygen back in the day, “Girls Behaving Badly” – but you LOVE her now because of her hit talk show on the E! network, Chelsea Lately!!!!
Weeknights at 11, she gives us her hilarious take on pop culture and world events.
Along with her “Little Nugget” Chuy and a roundtable of the best comedians, she simply calls it like it is. Her celebrity interviews cut to the chase, are unapologetic, and there is no sidestepping of tabloid accusations.
Her third memoir “CHELSEA CHELSEA BANG BANG” hits stores this coming Tuesday, March 9th. I’ve actually had my copy on pre-order since November!!!
Her other two books, “My Horizontal Life” and “Are You There Vodka, It’s Me Chelsea” were laugh out loud funny. I read them both twice!
There hasn’t been a stand up show I’ve missed either….Carnegie Hall, Capital One Bank Theater in Westbury, The Wellmont in Montclair – you name it!
AND FOR MY BUDDY, FRESH AFTERNOON GUY DYLAN – (he and I are both TEAM LETTERMAN) – here’s an interesting tidbit:
Chelsea’s E! late-night program, Chelsea Lately makes almost the same amount on ad revenue as Comedy Central’s Colbert Report. Her $$$ is on the rise, while Stephen Colbert is beginning to flatline.
In a similar scenario, The Late Show with David Letterman fared better in advertising revenue than The Tonight Show, even before NBC played ring-around-the-show-host. Anyone working in the industry knows that television comes down to two factors: ratings and money.
I will also be checking out her pals from the roundtable - The Comedians Of Chelsea Lately, they have their own tour as well. I’m going to The Wellmont show Friday, March 26th in Montclair, NJ.
They will also be in Westbury Long Island at the Capital One Bank Theater Saturday, March 27th. The lineup includes: Jo Koy, Whitney Cummings and Chris Franjola with special guest Chuy! (YAY!!!!)
And in case you were curious whose dog is on the cover of “CHELSEA CHELSEA BANG BANG”….IT’S HERS!!! His name is CHUNK!
Oh and one more thing FYI, Chuy will have his own book out soon!! It’s called “Little Nuggets of Wisdom: Big Advice from the Small Star of Chelsea Lately” and it will be in stores April 1st – LOL!
