Not all talk-show guests are made equal.
On Thursday’s “A Little Late with Lilly Singh” on Global, guest Chelsea Handler commiserated with TV’s latest late-night host about what it’s like to command a chat show.
Among the important subjects are the guests, and Handler admitted that some are better than others.
Asked who are the best, Handler said that she loved talking to rappers on her old show “Chelsea Lately”, and that her least favourite guests are stars of movies she didn’t enjoy.
“You just say, ‘You look great,'” Handler said of how she handles those interviews. “You start with ‘You look great’ to everybody, ’cause people love that.”
She added, “I have trouble lying — I have trouble saying that I watched something that I didn’t, or I liked something that I didn’t — so I would say, ‘Wow, what a… stretch for you.'”
