HBO Max announced a new stand up comedy special by Chelsea Handler is coming to the streaming service. The special will be Handler’s first return to stand up in 6 years. The comedienne is right off her national book tour for her #1 New York Times bestselling memoir, Life Will Be the Death of Me. The special will feature all-new material, based on her personal experiences like getting therapy and her journey to self-awareness.
“No one makes me laugh like Chelsea and we are thrilled to partner with her on this long awaited return to standup,” said Suzanna Makkos, executive vice president of original comedy and animation for HBO Max. “We feel lucky to be able to share with our audience her evolution and personal growth that she relays so beautifully in this hour special.’
“I didn’t want to return to stand-up until I had something important to say. I do now” said Handler. “I’m absolutely delighted to be doing this with HBO Max and always excited to be reunited with Bob Greenblatt. One of the only executives I can never have sex with.”
In a press release, HBO called Handler’s new stand up special “a powerful performance and the best work of her career.”
