What is comedian Chelsea Handler's estimated net worth? One of Chelsea Handler's first breakout roles was on hidden camera series Girls Behaving Badly, which debuted in 2002 and featured female comedians playing pranks on unsuspecting members of the public. The show lasted four seasons and once it ended she went on to star in her own, short-lived sketch comedy series The Chelsea Handler Show for the E! Network.
In 2007 she launched late-night chat show Chelsea Lately, where she performed an opening monologue before discussing various pop culture topics with a round panel of guests, which included the likes of Whitney Cummings, Kevin Hart (Ride Along) and Mary Lynn Rajskub. The show proved to be a ratings hit for the network, lasting for seven seasons and over 1000 episodes. The show also spawned spinoff After Lately, a mockumentary taking a look behind the scenes of the chat show. Once she left the series in 2014 Handler would admit she wasn't fond of working with E! Regardless, Chelsea Lately made Handler a star, and while working on the chat show she also appeared in movies and shows like Whitney, Hop, and romantic comedy This Mean War, alongside Tom Hardy and Resse Witherspoon.
Handler is also a successful author, having written bestsellers like Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang, Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me and Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea. That latter book formed the basis for NBC sitcom Are You There, Chelsea? This 2012 series starred Laura Prepon (That 70's Show) are Chelsea Newman, with Handler herself appearing in a recurring role as Sloane Bradley; the show lasted one season. Her varied career has been profitable, with The Richest estimating Chelsea Handler's net worth to be $35 million.
Handler continues to jump between careers, recently making a guest appearance on the Will & Grace revival in an episode titled "Family, Trip." In 2014 she released Netflix comedy special Uganda Be Kidding Me and her other Netflix projects included documentary series Chelsea Does - where she explored topics such as marriage, racism and drugs - and talk show Chelsea. While that series was in a similar style to Chelsea Lately and included starry guests like Jessica Chastain (IT: Chapter 2), Jennifer Lawrence, and Cara Delevingne, it only lasted two seasons.
Her most recent Netflix project is documentary Hello, Privilege. It's Me, Chelsea, where she explores the topic of white privilege. Chelsea Handler has made a career of being true to herself, which has worked out very well.
