Chelsea Handler, who is taking a break after her wildly popular E! late-night talk show “Chelsea Lately, ” to tour in a stand-up comedy take on her wild, overseas travels entitled, “Uganda Be Kidding, ” reminisced about her bat-mitzvah with an authentic period photo on Instagram. In the photo, Handler is a beaming 12 year old with the infamous big hair characteristic of the 1980s while the rabbi in trendy tinted glasses stands supportively at her side while she places her finger on an open Torah scroll. The photo was captioned, “Don’t ever say I’m not a real Jew. My bat-mitzvah. Mazal.”
Concerning her most recent foray into a creating stand-up comedic travel diary, Handler actually found it necessary to warn potential ticket buyers that the material might be irreverent. “I don’t take anything very seriously, and that comes out in my show and how I see things. My stand-up is observational, but it is self-observational and self-deprecating, definitely.”
One of Handler’s less exotic getaways was with actress Sandra Bullock to celebrate the latter’s 50th birthday at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in Jackson, Wyoming. Quite some ways from the bar and in broad daylight, the lady friends snapped a photo for social media, with one outgoing party member displaying her thong-clad buns.
Chelsea Handler has recently signed a deal for a new show with Netflix, and it is hoped that she will bring the same raucous humor to the new venue. It is likely that “Chelsea Lately” regulars, the Josh Wolf and Jiffy Wild duo, will appear on a new Chelsea format, at the very least, in lasting tribute of Wolf’s 2011 New York Times best-selling modern masterpiece, Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me.
