Continuing her streak, this actress/comedienne had her entire new special written by other people.
She likes everyone to think the jokes are her own.
Chelsea Handler: Evolution
Chelsea Handler gets real about her Evolution, and what she doesn’t miss about her talk show
Chelsea Handler, like so many this year, needed to connect with others beyond video calls and social media. When she had the chance to get back on the stand-up comedy stage — COVID-compliant, of course — she took it.
“I really wanted to put something out that could bring people together and make people laugh,” she recently told EW — via one of those video calls, which you can watch above. Her way of making people laugh is in the form of a new special, Chelsea Handler: Evolution, streaming Thursday on HBO Max. An adaptation of sorts of her 2019 memoir Life Will Be the Death of Me, the special — which she was able to test on live audiences in some “really dinky comedy rooms” that were at “30-percent capacity” after re-opening this year — covers everything from her trip to a California wellness retreat (where she recounts a hilarious tale of finding the person with drugs and then taking those drugs, which had effects she’d never experienced before) and her attraction to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to the major — and shocking (she’s not ADHD, it turns out, but lacks empathy!) — discoveries she made about herself.
Handler calls it the “most personal” special she’s ever done. “It’s me coming to terms with going to therapy, finding out I was a raging bitch and having no clue that’s how I was coming across,” the 45-year-old says, laughing. – Source
