It´s only been a month since Chelsea Handler said farewell to her late night show Chelsea Lately, but as one of the hardest working humans in comedy, she’d be hard pressed to take a break. After seven years boosting ratings and comedians’ careers, Handler is embarking on a new epic journey with Netflix. Kicking off the partnership is Handler’s newest comedy special Uganda Be Kidding Me.
Handler’s Netflix deal will find her producing multiple stand-up specials and ultimately move her late night talents to the streaming service come 2016. As one of a few huge comedic acquisitions by Netflix, Uganda Be Kidding Me runs parallel to Handler’s autobiographical book of the same name, with a stream of unapologetic, foul-mouthed stories of her life coupled with the occasional compromising photograph. In her usual confrontational and inappropriately hilarious voice, Handler navigates her reckless sexual escapades and her penchant for racial sensitivity in a less-than-politically-correct fashion. And it’s all pretty great. The trailer for Uganda Be Kidding Me is below. Uganda Be Kidding Me premieres Oct. 10 on Netflix. Check it out!
