LAT on Chelsea Handler

chelsea1

Chelsea Handler talks way too much celebrity gossip. Her nightly roundtable discussion groups often consist of D-list comics, and the celebrity interview guests are many times as equally bottom-shelf. She’s prone to politically incorrect humor and has an unhealthy obsession with her 4-foot-3-inch personal assistant and Chelsea Lately sidekick, Chuy. In her earlier stand-up days, she was told that was too pretty to be taken seriously as a comic. Her half-hour talk show, which seems to be in reruns every other night, is up against Letterman and Leno, and one could argue that she landed her own show because she dates the head of E! Television.

None of this has anything to do with the fact that her show must be given a chance by adventurous late-night viewers. Chelsea Handler is just that funny.
