Handler sounds pretty excited about the new venture she’s involved with. She is executive producing the special along with Irving Azoff and Allison Statter.
“I didn’t want to return to stand-up until I had something important to say. I do now,” Handler said about her new special. “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.”
“No one makes me laugh like Chelsea and we are thrilled to partner with her on this long-awaited return to standup,” Suzanna Makkos said, who is the 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.”
Handler will be joining other big names on the new streaming platform that will offer other comedy specials from Tracy Morgan, John Early, Rose Matafeo, and Ahir Shah. It will also feature five specials from Conan O’Brien’s Team Coco.
