Yet Another Tome From the Vodkarati
Like a blond Kardashian — but with talent and a sense of shame — Chelsea Handler can't stop multiplying on TV, what with three separate shows, not to mention three books and an eponymous stand-up tour featuring her fellow comics. And everyone who touches her turns into comedy gold: even Handler's late-night talk show sidekick/little person Chuy Bravo has written a book. Now, it's Sarah Colonna's turn to cash in on the Handler craze. You can see Colonna weekly on Chelsea Lately smack-talking on topics from celebs to McDonald's customers arrested for offering sex in exchange for Chicken McNuggets. She's also a member and co-producer of the mockumentary spin-off show After Lately and has taken part in the "Comedians of Chelsea Lately" tour. In her just-published memoir, Life As I Blow It: Tales of Love, Life & Sex ... Not Necessarily in That Order, Colonna spills her vodka-soaked guts about the transition from Arkansas to L.A., land of endless catering jobs and improv classes where she'd eventually meet Handler. Like her boss, Colonna is working with Adam Sandler's production company Happy Madison to turn her book into a sitcom. Their booze cups runneth over. Colonna signs her book at Book Soup, 8818 Sunset Blvd., W. Hlywd.; Mon., March 12, 7 p.m.; free, book is $15.(310) 659-3110.
