She then decided to try out her stand-up comedy talent and continued performing until she got her 15 minutes of fame.

TV career

After appearing in smaller TV roles as a comedian and a supporting actress, she finally got a chance to become a TV show host. In 2006 she got her own show, The Chelsea Handler Show. The show didn’t last for too long and it was cancelled after only two seasons.

E! gave her another chance to show her extreme talent in a show called Chelsea Lately and this time, she got the jackpot. The show made around 10$ million in just one week of airing and Chelsea got in the media spotlight.

After it stopped airing, the show got several spin-offs that welcomed numerous celebrities and it was, once again, hosted by Chelsea.

Besides acting and hosting, Chelsea is also a writer. She released several books with different themes. Almost all of her books became bestsellers and brought her enormous popularity and income. Her latest book is called Uganda be kidding me and in 2014 a stand-up comedy show, based on this book, started airing on Netflix.

Her latest TV project was Chelsea Does. The show stars Chelsea in her journey to try out new things. It had only four episodes and all of them had a different subject. To film the show, Chelsea received 10$ million from Netflix, and the show ended up being a huge success.

In 2006 she lost her mother to breast cancer. Her mother struggled with the illness since 1989. Chelsea also lost one of her brothers when she was only 9 years old. He died in a hiking accident, and she grew up faster, due to early family tragedy, than most of her friends.
