I’ve come to see Chelesa Handler in a different light now that she’s wrapping up her show. Once you consider that fucking the right people and drowning your regrets in booze is the standard apprentice track for Hollywood, she’s no different than Sam Walton. If men could fuck their way to the top, they would. We do it even when it gets us nowhere. Chelsea Handler managed to turn the rhetorical ‘What is up with Britney Spears?’ set to a canned laugh track into a dedicated audience of women and gay men on the coasts. She’s younger than Joan Rivers and she’s not as hard to look at as Kathy Griffin. Comedy is all about timing. Success is all about positioning.
