Chelsea Handler’s First Stand-Up Comedy Show

Sorry to disappoint but I couldn’t find Chelsea’s first stand-up comedy show on YouTube, but I can imagine it looks a little like the video I posted below – AKA: a train crashing into a beached whale in the middle of Siberia. (How did a whale get to Siberia? Exactly.)  


What do Dane Cook, Kevin Hart and I have in common? 

Well not a whole hell of a lot…

Except, we have all stood on stage in front of a massive audience and made complete and utter donkeys of ourselves.

GiGi Dubois doing Stand Up Comedy

That’s right, I can now cross “stand-up comedy” off of my bucket list. 

  • Stand Up Comedy

To be honest, I am not entirely sure what I even did up there… Was it comedy? Was I even standing? 

Whatever, you be the judge. 

PS: You are going to learn A LOT about me when you watch this video… You’ve been warned.

Mmm… Scrumptious! GiGi Eats Celebrities!

I guess I am not THAT BAD… Especially if Bite Size Wellness wanted to feature me on their site

  • So… What did you think of my sad attempt at Stand-Up?
  • Would you ever do stand-up?
  • Who is your favorite stand-up comedian?
  • Have you ever had stomach problems like mine?
  • Do guys/girls need an instruction manual to date you?
  • How do you feel about UNAGI? 


  1. I….LOVE…your stand up. I seriously wanted to skin a pirate to be able to attend that night!! I couldn’t do it, I may seem all wild and outgoing, but put me in front of people and I seize up like a salt poured slug. OK so I knew about your intestine being gone from a post of mine a long time ago…but I am nosy and consider us BFF’s so I want more details. Also I am kind of a medical nerd and find things like this fascinating. still shit ok right? And you eat anything else, just not the stuff you mentioned right? And people just NOT GET IT when you say, “Hey guess what I am missing part of my inside I actually can’t eat that pizza!” I would get to stage 10 with you. That’s marriage. We would make a happy loving couple.

    • Dude, trust me, I almost shat my pants when I was on stage, lol! I forgot 1/2 of what I was going to say, hence why only snips of the video are shown, Ah ha ha!

      Ha Ha! it’s okay to be curious, at this point, I feel like I might as well broadcast on TV what happened to me… Oh wait, I totally will whenever I get that ON-AIR JOB! Aha ha ha! Okay so apparently I had a cecal volvulus. This happens to dogs and old people. When I was in the hospital I was in the ward with the 90 year olds, LOL!!!

      As for shitting, uh, well, lets just say it’s the BANE of my existence and I pretty much struggle with stomach issues/pain on a daily basis. I try to make the best of it though because I know there are people out there that have it worse than me. Surprisingly though, after I tell people that I don’t have a large intestine, they accept that I cannot eat X, Y, Z, A, B & C… LOL! Although sometimes people ask me, “what’s a large intestine”… Oh good god, someone paid attention in school! LOL!!!

      Shit, I guess I need to make a part 2 of this video… So I can detail what STEP 10 is!!! 😉

      • You are my hero!! And you thought I would want to break up with you after this video…you’re crazy!!! I hate hat you have pain everyday, and would like to shank whoever is making that happen to you. You are one strong motha fucka though!! HUGSSSSS MY FRIEND!

        • Weee! I should get a CAPE that says: SUCK IT LARGE INTESTINE and wear it EVERYWHERE I GO… Including Dancing With The Stars tonight!!! LOL!

  2. I think you are hilarious and adorable all at the same time!!
    Never had any stomach problems quite like yours – sounds like zero fun!!
    I could never do stand-up (I can’t think fast enough!!) – you, however, are a natural!!

    • Ha ha! Well thank you, I appreciate that, I guess I will just have to do some more open mic nights! But let me tell you, I was a nervous wreck – Shhh! LOL!!!

      And yeah, my tummy issues, not so fun, although I did like when people were taking care of me at the hospital, lol – who doesn’t like to be waited on? Seriously! Ah Ha Ha!

  3. So after watching your video… I seriously think we could be best friends. You’re hilarious!!

    • Ah ha ha ha!!! Well this is GREAT NEWS :) If you ever come to LA, let me know – we can go get some unagi and pick up men, lol!

  4. Stephanie says:


    • THANK YOU THANK YOU hottie hot hot!!!!! Next time, you’re coming! Maybe we can do a DUET STAND UP event! lol

  5. Good for you!!

    A very good professional performer friend of mine (and when I was learning to drive by my grandfather) told me the NERVE is the key to performing!

    I’ve spoken to audiences of 1000 people, but wouldn’t have the nerve for stand-up!

    • Ha Ha! I guess talking in front of people versus stand up comedy is a bit different… I am glad I went up, I think I may just go do open mic nights to get comfortable up there :)

  6. Good for you! It takes guts to get up there. Well done.
    You are one of a kind that is for sure. :) Haha!

    • Ha Ha! Well THANK YOU! Trust me, I was definitely about to Sh** my pants when I was up there, AHH HA HA HA! 😉

  7. Hey Hoover – let’s get together and eat lettuce scraps! P.S. : I’m not a dude . . . and I’m not blonde. I aim to disappoint!

    • Ahhhh ha ha ha ah ha ha!!!! That should be my motto, “I am to disappoint” – Story of my life 😉

  8. I’m so happy to finally see you on stage, keep going book another gig ASAP !! Your lucky I’m not Blonde, but my eye’s change color pending mood :) I tried to bake another Artichoke and forgot it in the oven, it looked like Sharon Osborn when I took it out. I took a public speaking class, Prof. said scan the room when talking and remember your in control. Thanks for the great posting and you may have to break a few rules when you meet that great guy someday.

    • You’re right: I think I am going to have to break some of my rules, because clearly I am not getting anywhere by living by my rules! lol

      AND OMG… You should have taken a picture of that artichoke, HYSTERICAL! Literally just busted out laughing when I read that comment, lol!

      Oh and when I did the stand up, I tried to scan the room, but the room’s lights were so bright, I couldn’t see ANYONE or ANYTHING! ha ha.

      • I forgot about that, I knew a dancer once and I remember her telling me that, she said the same thing all they see is lights.

  9. GIGI! You loooook hawt!! and dude your seriously really funny!!!!!! I so don’t know what your talking about, you are soooo engaged!!!! and I can hear the crowd laughing! :):) YOUR GOING TO THE MOON!

    • I LOVE YOU Nicole, thank you! :) Next time I have a show, you’re coming!

      • GIGI! You know it! Got to chat with you soon and tell you about what you know so well, the tummy drama that happened! I LOVE YOU TOO AND I KNOW FOR SURE, YOUR GOING TO BE JUST AS AMAZING NEXT TIME AROUND when I’m there in person!

  10. Erin from Long Island says:

    Aww…I’m sad we couldn’t see it all on stage but I understand why you couldn’t do it that way. It’s funny to me that the first time I started watching your stuff I thought you should do stand-up. It takes time to develop the nerves you need, but I think you have the guts, even without part of them actually being in there 😉

    • Thank you, I appreciate that! I plan on doing a lot of open mic nights to get more comfortable on stage! And you’re right, I couldn’t just post the video, because well… It was not all smooth like butter, lol! But practice makes perfect!

  11. Raw talent -comedy central ready!

  12. Can we pretty please hang out? I think we would eat potential dates ALIVE. I should come with a warning.

  13. You make me laugh & these days, I need that! The crowd loved you & so do I!!!! :)

  14. Good JOB!!!!!!!!!!! Holy shizzza! I’d never be able to do stand up! I’m the worst joke teller ever!

    • I don’t think I am funny ONE BIT… So yeah, maybe people were just giggling at my awkwardness! LOL!

  15. LOL! OMG, you are so brave!!

  16. I am hard of hearing, but I understood most of what you were talking about and you seriously cracked me up! My two year old was like “stop laughing mama, right Nooooow!’ Yes she barks orders at me ha ha ha ha I say keep doing it, you are a natural! Go Go Power Rangers ha ha ha ha ha ha

    • Ah ha ha!! OMG this comment made me laugh so hard! :) Your daughter sounds a lot like me when I was little – IN CHARGE! lol. (FYI: my mom and I are best friends, so that’s what you have to look forward to!).

      Thanks for swinging by my blog! :) We are officially Blog Buddies!

  17. You’re hilarious! And awesome on crossing “Stand Up Comedy” off your list. There’s a lot of us who wouldn’t be able to get up there and do it 😉

  18. You are so funny! It took me an hour to film a 30 second intro video on my blog, I can’t imagine standing up in front of people… You did great.

    • Thanks Lea! I appreciate that! 😀 I cannot wait to see your video – I am sure since it took you an HOUR, it’s AMAZING!

  19. OMG you are so brave to do stand up and I think your comedy would be hilarious!

  20. Oh man, you are great! I do a lot of public speaking but could NEVER in a million years do stand-up. My hat is off to you!

    • What do you do public speaking for? That’s hard enough for most people, as is! So I give you lots of credit!

  21. Wow, you really are so funny! Love the potty mouth – I do a lot of presentations and would love to be able to tell people to ‘screw it!’ on occassions. Wish I could be funny AND pull it off!

    • Ha! Thanks Sarah!! :) Yeah, my potty mouth definitely gets me into trouble sometimes, but eh, what can I do? I cannot change who I am, so people will just have to deal! LOL! And you never know if you’re funny until you get up on stage & try 😉

  22. Hilarious! NO stand up for me, I’m not too funny.

    BUT Oh yea unagi hands down lol

  23. Good on you for putting it out there! I did a stand-up routine once (part of my bucket list) and it was deceptively hard. I learned that the secret is learning what to leave out. I feel certain you’ll be headlining soon. And your groupies will learn not to bring you pizza.

    • Aw thank you!!! It’s definitely deceptively hard! I just need to go do some random open mic nights to get more comfortable on stage, and soon enough: BAM! I’ll be replacing… Yeah, I am not even sure who a HUGE comic is, lol!

  24. Finally linking up with my Friday Flash Blog community. Thanks for linking up and sharing in the fun! Have a terrific week and see you on Friday.


  25. I’m catching up on all my faves since I’ve been on vacation and I am SOOOOO glad you posted some of your stand-up routine! You are so brave and so funny!
    And keep it up with the bad words. I think a good F-bomb is appropriate in most social situations. :)

    • Ah ha ha ha ha! Well SHIT then I won’t FUC*ING sensor myself, ever again! LOL!! 😉 Thanks lady. Hope you had a terrific vacay!

  26. Shoot you’ve got the laughs and way bigger ballies than me for getting up there! Bravo sistah Fran!

    • Ha Ha! Thanks KAT! It’s definitely COMPLETELY different than hosting, acting, modeling or even running a marathon, that’s for sure!

  27. Your posts never disappoint me!!!! Lol love this and you!!! xoxo

  28. Hee heeeeeee!!! I thought you were funny and you gut laughs–so keep going! (Totally not laughing at your stomach woes…I’m laughing uh, with your stomach woes?)

    P.S. Arf arf :)

    • Ah ha ha ha! Oh I know, you’re laughing WITH ME, not at me! 😉 And thank you, I am definitely on the pursuit to get in front of as many people as possible!

  29. Oh my goodness. You’re too funny! You have some guts to get up there. Although I enjoy living on the comedic side, I could never get up there and do a stand-up show! Mucho props to you, Gi! Your UNAGI comment… priceless.

    • Ha Ha Thanks Brittany! I definitely was PEEING IN MY PANTS when I was up there, but hopefully that didn’t come across! LOL!

      Mmmmmmmm Unagi. I could go for some of that now. I think I may make UNAGI my code word for sex. lol
