The New Jersey native grew up in a Reform Judaism and Mormon synthesized home, a fact which she often mocks in her stand-up. The aspiring comedienne left her hometown for LA when she was a teen to pursue a career in acting and stand-up comedy. It would take her a decade before she hit the big time with her debut book My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands in 2005. The book was a success and led to two more New York Times bestsellers including Are You There, Vodka? It's Me Chelsea and Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang. In all, her book sales have totaled 1.7 million copies and have helped to launch her stand-up comedy and television career. Chelsea Handler comedy tour dates were scheduled on the Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang Tour to promote her books and stand-up comedy.
By 2005, Handler's stand-up comedy was garnering mainstream attention and she was featured on The Tonight Show as a correspondent. Handler also landed guest spots on The Bernie Mac Show and My Wife and Kids. She was approached by the E! Network to headline her own late-night talk-show entitled Chelsea Lately. The hit-show debuted in 2007 and has been a runaway success for the cable network. The show features a round-table in which Handler invites other comedians who discuss hot topics of the day followed by a "celebrity" interview. The success of the show led to the spin-off mock reality-show, After Lately, which details life on the set of the show. In addition to her E! commitments, Chelsea Handler comedy tour dates are scheduled periodically throughout the year.
