Her round table panel is amusing enough when they spar with Chelsea over the latest no-talents populating Hollywood.Chelsea's sarcasm, blunt delivery, and earthy wit are a pleasure to watch compared with Conan O' Brien, David Letterman, and even (yes, I mean it) Jon Stewart.
Chuy is excellent as the "John Everyman" sidekick who makes funny, mean-spirited comments back at Chelsea.I dare say, Chuy Bravo is a much better sidekick than Ed Mc Mahon or Andy Richter ever were!Handler, who recently signed a talk show deal with Netflix, is no stranger to controversy, of course.Chuy Bravo (born Jesus Melgoza) may be known as Chelsea Handler’s “little nugget” on the cable talk show Chelsea Lately, but as the first Latino sidekick on a late-night television show he’s also proven that he’s a big deal in the business.The scrapbook on the dining-room table is unexpected. It’s not as stony or derisive as the one she directed at an obsequious wedding planner, or the guy who runs a historic South Carolina plantation with the aim of “not making slavery more horrific than it may have been,” in Chelsea Does, the four-part documentary series that just premiered on Netflix and explores various fraught topics from marriage to racism. She once asked Drake what was up with him and Nicki Minaj “in a penetration context,” and lightly mocked Justin Bieber on multiple occasions.
You picture Chelsea Handler in her free time enjoying vodka on the rocks, maybe, but never fussing with photo tabs and mounting tape. Biebs even pulled the curtain back to complain that she was asking questions about his dating life that had not been vetted beforehand (as is customary in late night).
After Lately is a Mockumentary - a "behind the scenes" of the popular show "Chelsea Lately" on the E! The good: It's not a Kardashian show, a major plus, and it is true original programming - there is no plot to it, and it never stops making you laugh.
Another good thing the show has going for it: it's actually funny.
It's a show that is what it is, and does well at being just that.
If you haven't seen this show, please give it a viewing.
