Watch Chelsea Lately


Chelsea Lately is a late night talk show that incorporates interviews with celebrities, skits, and round table conversations with various comedians. The show is hosted by writer and comedian Chelsea Handler. Due to the show's success, a spin-off was created documenting behind the scenes footage and skits of the original Chelsea Lately show, which also received successful viewer counts and ratings. Due to the popularity of both programs, a sitcom exposing real-life events in Chelsea's life was recently created as well.

The show is presented to viewers in a 30 minute format, with frequent re-runs that also receive high viewer ratings. It begins with Chelsea Handler talking about recent events, celebrity and news related, in a usually solo stand up routine. Chelsea Handler also socializes with her "assistant", Chuy Bravo, in her opening routines. Many of these openings incorporate issues and events which take place in Chelsea's personal life, which are presented in a humorous and self degrading manner.

Once the opening is completed, Chelsea Handler will sit down at the show's round table and present various comedians, socialites, staff, and actors, again socializing humorously about current topics, television shows, pop culture, and world issues. The show will then include 1 or multiple skits written and created by Chelsea and other staff members.

After the comedy portion of the show is over, Chelsea Handler then interviews 1 or multiple celebrity guests. They'll discuss upcoming releases and events that the guest is a part of, with the use of jokes and one liners in between serious conversation.

The show is praised for it's hilarity and confrontation of relevant and current topics. It has also received criticism for sarcastic and controversial jabs made toward other countries and world leaders. However, these controversial events have also been praised by many viewers and critics, who state that these jokes are humorous and therapeutic methods at confronting world events.

Because of the show's success, Chelsea Handler quickly rose to fame, becoming widely known and receiving a large fan base. Chelsea Handler has written multiple books since her show began airing, which confront issues Chelsea has dealt with throughout her life, including alcoholism. Chelsea Handler has also had successful book tours for these novels, all of which have become bestsellers.

Chelsea Handler has also guest starred on many other television shows, including sitcoms, dramas, reality-based series, and late night talk programs. She has taken part in various comedic stand up events, including successful comedy tours.

Chelsea Handler Posts Her Boobs on Instagram, Compares Herself to Putin, Then Quits Instagram

Don't tell Chelsea Handler where she can and can't post her boobs, or she'll get political on you. The comedian posted an Instagram pic of herself riding a horse topless, comparing herself to a similar photo of Vladimir Putin. Not only is it a funny juxtaposition, Handler also set out to make a point: why are men allowed to post themselves shirtless while women aren't? "Anything a man can do, a woman has the right to do better #kremlin," Handler wrote for the photo's caption.

Chelsea Handler Set to Host 1st-Ever Netflix Talk Show

It's official: Chelsea Handler is going streaming. Netflix announced today that Handler will become the host of the streaming service's first original talk show once her run on "Chelsea Lately" ends this August.

Naked Sandra Bullock Slaps Chelsea Handler...

I don’t know what the point of this way, but you know what? It’s got a pretty healthy proportion of side boob, and that’s enough for me. Sandra Bullock guest starred on “Chelsea Lately,” popping up unexpectedly in the show’s introduction. Naked. In the staff showers. That’s right, folks. Naked Sandra Bullock, with only some mild pixilation standing in the way of her and those award-winning lady bits. Oh, and Chelsea Handler’s naked too. So why did Bullock stop by? Apparently to scold Handler into pulling herself together.

Gangnam Style Hits 'Chelsea Lately'

If you’ve been in a terrible accident and been off the Internet for the past few weeks, that’s probably the only way you’ve managed to escape the world-sweeping amazingness that is “Gangnam Style.” The South Korean music video has gone viral in a big way.
