Controversial comedian and talk-show host Chelsea Handler is coming to Netflix in a new talk show, the first ever for the online media giant. Chelsea, the 30-minute show that will air on the streaming network three times a week, is a globe-trotting adventure that sees “Chelsea boldly carrying a Donald Drumpf piñata through Mexico City, receiving some hard news from a polygamist that she’s not exactly fourth wife material, and training with no-nonsense Russian athletes, including Maria Sharapova.” It’s a show that combines international experiences with in-studio interviews with some of the world’s most famous faces.
Some of those faces, who just happen to star in Captain America: Civil War, are included in the first clip from Chelsea. Chris Evans, Emily VanCamp, Frank Grillo, and Sebastian Stan stop by for a chat with Chelsea over dinner, where things quickly get awkward, as you might expect. The gang will be showing up on Friday’s episode of Chelsea, but you can check out the clip along with the talk show’s trailer below.
