It’s national women’s month or women’s history month or something like that, and in case you haven’t noticed, women are dominating comedy news all week. Maria, Amy, Bonnie, Samantha, Abbi and Ilana and now Chelsea.
Chelsea Handler has finally announced the details of her talk show via handwritten note on twitter. The note doesn’t mention anything about getting naked yet, but c’mon it’s Chelsea. So here’s what we know. The show will be thirty minutes and run three nights a week (Wed-Fri), there will be travel, and interviews with “respected public figures.” If you’re wondering what counts as a respected public figure, consider that her three dream guests are Michele Obama, the Pope, and Arnold Schwartzeneggar’s maid.
She has not released the name yet, but she has been asking fans for help naming the show, and promises to announce the final name at a press conference Thursday March 17 at noon et, 8am pt. You can hear the press conference live through her twitter or her facebook.

It feels like years since Handler made the announcement she was leaving her popular late night E! show Chelsea Lately and announced she would be starting a new talk show with Netflix. That’s because it was years– two years ago. Back in June 2014, Chelsea announced that she would make the jump to Netflix in 2016- also promising an hour special, and a series of short documentaries for the platform. She’s made good on the special and the docs, and now the world is ready for the return of Chelsea.
Feast your eyes on her handmade press release and tune in tomorrow for her big big announcement.
