Airing tonight on NBC, ARE YOU THERE, CHELSEA? is a freshman sitcom loosely based on the memoirs of comedienne CHELSEA HANDLER and offers a rose-tinted look at her early days of hard drinking and fast living. Part of what seems to be a new dawn of decidedly raunchy prime-time humor, the show might be considered a bit outre for some more conservative audiences. In an odd bit of casting, the sitcom stars LAURA PREPON in the titular role while HANDLER actually plays the role of her sister.
Probably best known for her stand-up comedy, HANDLER is certainly making her mark on the television landscape. During our recent interview at the Television Critics Association press event, she took a few moments to walk down memory lane and reminisce about her first time on the stand-up stage.
