Chelsea Handler began her career as a stand-up comedian, touring in many major venues across the country. She was a regular on the Oxygen series Girls Behaving Badly, which aired in 2002. She later became known for her caustic commentary on pop culture and celebrities -- which led to several talk show guestings and stints, the most successful of which is E!'s late night show Chelsea Lately, which premiered in 2007.
Handler's other major project was the web series In the Motherhood, featuring her, Leah Remini and Jenny McCarthy. When ABC picked it up as a full (albeit short-lived) series she pulled out, citing scheduling conflicts.
Of late Handler's also been known as a best-selling author. Her first book, a collection of essays named My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands, reached the top of the New York Times' Best Seller List. The same happened to her second book, Are You There, Vodka? It's Me Chelsea; it has been adapted as a comedy on NBC starring her and Laura Prepon. Her latest book, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang, was released in 2010.
