It's Me, Chelsea (2008). She grew up in New Jersey, and in the late 1990s moved to Los Angeles to start a career in comedy. Early on, she landed TV guest appearances and a regular stint on the cable comedy show Girls Behaving Badly (2002). Her career began to take off in 2005, with the publication of her memoir and with occasional "reporting" segments for Jay Leno's The Tonight Show. The next year she had her own show on the E! cable channel, The Chelsea Handler Show, which was followed in 2007 by Chelsea Lately, a late night talk show featuring Handler's smart-aleck commentary on pop culture. Like her contemporary Sarah Silverman, Handler specializes in raunchy comedy of the I-can't-believe-she-said-that variety. Besides her talk show, Handler has done stand-up comedy tours, appeared in the web series In the Motherhood (2007, with Jenny McCarthy) and, in 2010, published her third book, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang.
 
Chelsea Handler has become one of entertainment’s most sought after and versatile rising stars. 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 the network’s highest-rated program, “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.

On March 28, 2010, she achieved a spectacular feat when her three books took the #1, #2, and #3 spots on the New York Times Best Seller list. Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang, from Grand Central Publishing, was the #1 nonfiction hardcover; Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea, from Simon Spotlight Entertainment, was the #2 nonfiction paperback; and My Horizontal Life, from Bloomsbury, was the #3 nonfiction paperback. In hardcover, Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea debuted at #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list when it was published in April 2008; and My Horizontal Life has been a bestseller for 80 weeks.
As a testament to her versatility and tireless work ethic, Chelsea’s 21-city comedy tour, also entitled “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang” and sponsored by Belvedere Vodka, kicked off in March 2010. After tickets sold out immediately, Live Nation added 15 more shows. As one of the nation’s most acclaimed and cutting edge-comedians, Handler delivers a sharp combination of fearless honesty, ironic riffs and self-deprecations with no shortage of material.
