TV taping: “The Comedians of Chelsea Lately”

It's no secret that Chelsea Handler has a group of favorite comedians who appear on a regular basis providing their topical bon mots as panelists on her late-night chat show on E!, Chelsea Lately. Handler has been kind enough to reach out to these comics and give them TV time (and credits!), and now, it looks as though she's going to present two entire showcases just for these stand-ups, called "The Comedians of Chelsea Lately." The shows will tape on June 25 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. Brody Stevens will host both showcases, with appearances by Chelsea Handler and her little-sized sidekick, Chuy.

So, here's the official trailer for I Love You, Beth Cooper, which stars Rust as the nerdy high-school valedictorian who publicly professes his love for the popular girl (Hayden Panettiere) in his graduation...
