And the Funniest Woman (and Author) in the World is…. Chelsea Handler
Chelsea Handler is quite possibly the funniest woman on the planet. After reading her books and watching her ridiculously awesome TV show for many months, it’s time for me to sing her praises. I read her first book, My Horizontal Life about two years ago. This absolutely hysterical book chronicles Chelsea’s one-night stands of years past. She’s irreverent, honest, and blunt. Three of my favorite personality traits in another woman. Last year, she released her second book, Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea. Awesome title, incredible read. It’s a great collection of short essays/observations. I read it on a plane and literally starting crying I was laughing so hard. People stared as tears ran down my face–it’s THAT funny.
Chelsea just released her third and latest book a couple months ago: Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang. I read that on a plane too. Same thing happened: Laughing out loud, tears running down my face, lots of looks from strangers. It’s another collection of stories from her life. While I assume she’s exaggerating in many of her recollections, you can’t help but picture these things really happening to her. It’s just amazingly funny.
In addition to her books, her daily show, Chelsea Lately is top notch comedy. The way she interviews people is just awesome. She’s blunt, calls everyone on their shit, and does it without offending anyone. There is no one else in the world I’d rather get a cocktail with then Chelsea Handler.
Buy her books. Trust me.
