Chelsea Handler Returns to Netflix in New Stand-Up Special

By Jessica Lerner 

Chelsea Handler is bringing her latest stand-up special to Netflix, according to Variety.

It debuts on Dec. 27, marking Handler’s return to Netflix. In 2016, she hosted her talk show Chelsea on the streamer, but it was canceled after two seasons.

The special, titled Revolution, will see Handler dishing some tea, including her decision to remain childless and single, dating during the pandemic as her family intrudes on her home, and her fantasy of a time when men don’t wear flip flops. The special was recorded during a Nashville, Tennessee’s Ryman Auditorium on June 10.


This is Handler’s first stand-up performance since 2020, when she premiered Evolution on HBO Max. Evolution had been her first stand-up special in six years. Handler’s Uganda Be Kidding Me: Live made its Netflix debut in 2014.

She is currently on the Vaccinated & Horny Tour, which had over 90 locations and 115 performances throughout the past 18 months. That tour ends on Dec. 16.
