890 Chelsea Handler’s ‘After Lately’ writers sling zingers! VIDEO INTERVIEW

Today’s Guest: Sarah Colonna, Brad Wollack, writers, comedians, “Chelsea Lately,” “After Lately”


Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of standup comedians who would give their left punchline for a shot on the Chelsea Lately panel… in the NEW new media capital of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida!


Chelsea Handler

Chelsea Handler is the star of ‘Chelsea Lately’ and ‘After Lately’ on E!

A casual viewer of Chelsea Handler’s monologue’s on her nightly E! talk show, “Chelsea Lately” might come away with the suspicion that she has no respect at all for her staff.

On the other hand, where would the careers of Heather McDonald, Chuy and my guests today, Sarah Colonna and Brad Wollack, be without those zingers?

BRAD WOLLACK podcast excerpt: “Making fun of Chuy was easy from Day One… Chelsea really helps define our personalities. She gave me my voice in many respects.”

They certainly wouldn’t be starring in the second season of “After Lately,” a behind-the-scenes mockumentary that airs after Chelsea’s gabfest. It returns this Sunday, November 27 @ 11 p.m. just after “Chelsea Lately” on E!

(Sarah Colonna, incidentally, is the great-niece of long-time Bob Hope sidekick and comedian Jerry Colonna, who sported one of show business’s all-time great mustaches.)

Both Wollack and Colonna are established comedians in their own right, but you have to bet they relish almost every moment of national attention thrown their way by the boss.

That, and the fact that Chelsea Handler just extended her E! deal another two years – or four Kardashian marriage-and-divorce cycles.
