Chelsea Handler is on her way back to Netflix, and we can't wait. The streamer is airing the comedian's hilarious stand-up special, Revolution, just two days after Christmas. Talk about a Christmas miracle! Handler filmed her special during a stop at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, this summer. Here's take a closer look...

The special is Handler's official return to Netflix, six years after she hosted her own talk show, Chelsea, which was the streamer's bridge into the talk-show world. In 2014, Handler's relationship with Netflix began when she debuted Uganda Be Kidding Me: Live, a show based on her famous book of the same title. Handler then released a four-part reality-style docuseries, where she explored marriage, racism, Silicon Valley, and recreational substances, named Chelsea Does. And just a few years ago, she starred in a documentary on the streamer, Hello, Privilege. It's Me, Chelsea. So, it's safe to say her relationship with Netflix is pretty strong.

Revolution is the comedian's first stand-up special since 2020 when she released Evolution on HBO Max, where she gave us all a deeper look at her journey towards self-awareness - with the classic Chelsea Handler spin, of course. According to the streamer, Revolution shows Handler letting "loose on her life choices, rowdy rescue dogs, dating frustrations, and why society owes women an apology." She also reveals why she has chosen to remain childless (besides her dogs), dating in the pandemic, and her very famous take on why men should not be wearing flip-flops. The hilarious comedian serves as an executive producer on the special, and her ex-beau and fellow comedian, Jo Koy, serves as director.

Handler is nearing the end of her Vaccinated & Horny Tour, which wraps up on December 16th. The year-and-a-half-long tour hit over 90 cities and will have completed 115 shows! Not to mention, she has her own podcast, Dear Chelsea, that airs weekly, where listeners write in, and Chelsea gives her hilarious yet honest responses. And don't forget: this summer, she expressed her interest in re-joining late-night television again, years after the departure of Chelsea Lately - and we are so here for that. Until then, make sure to catch Revolution coming to Netflix December 27th!
