“Stop thinking about what you expect out of life, and start thinking about what life expects out of you.” That Kennedyesque quote — followed by a big groan — kicks off the first trailer for Chelsea Handler: Evolution, the comic’s return to stand-up after six years away. The hourlong special premieres Thursday, October 22, on HBO Max.
Watch the clip above, and check out the key art below.
Handler shares experiences about her family, friendships and her first foray into therapy — where she was able to unearth why everyone on this planet annoyed her so much. Filmed in her native New Jersey during the pandemic, the special follows her most recent bestselling memoir, Life Will Be the Death of Me.
A sample: “The thing is, I like older men — which brings me to the strong and deep sexual feelings I have developed for Andrew Cuomo. I want to flatten his curve, and then I want to flatten his curve, and then I want to apex together.”
Best to laugh at 2020 rather than fight it.
Chelsea Handler: Evolution is produced by Troy Miller and Dakota Pictures, with Handler, Irving Azoff and Allison Statter serving as executive producers.
