Chelsea Handler has one of the most exciting careers in entertainment with a resume that includes bestselling author, talk show host, comedian, and actress to name a few. Chelsea is a permanent fixture in pop culture as she continues to build a multiplatform media empire. In July 2007, Chelsea broke into the world of late-night talk shows with her E! Entertainment series, “Chelsea Lately,” airing weeknights at 11:00 p.m. Consistently one of the network’s highest-rated programs, “Chelsea Lately” offers a tongue-in-cheek look at entertainment news, celebrity truths and rumors that just won’t die, along with other hot topics of the day. Bringing refreshing new energy to and redefining perceptions of the talk show, “Chelsea Lately” is an authentic and hilarious commentary on the celebrity culture around us. Both Handler and the show have also been recognized as pioneers in late night with the show boasting five female writers to account for half of its writing staff. This is unprecedented in the late night arena that has historically been dominated by male hosts and writers. As one of the nation’s most acclaimed and cutting edge comedians, Chelsea is equally well-known for a unique comedic style that combines fearless honesty, ironic riffs and self-deprecations – with no shortage of material. This past year, Chelsea partnered with Live Nation for her “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang” comedy tour sponsored by Belvedere Vodka. Due to high demand and several sold out venues, Live Nation extended the tour three times since its launch last March. Chelsea has performed 64 shows in 44 markets across the United States and in Canada. The “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang” tour sold over 250,000 tickets total to become one of the highest grossing of 2010. In May, Chelsea will once again hit the road for her second tour with Live Nation – this time with the Comedians of Chelsea Lately in tow – and will be based on her latest collection of riotous stories. The tour currently has shows scheduled in the top 20 markets across the US with tickets going on sale February 18th.
