Yesterday Whitney Cummings made an appearance on the Howard Stern Show to talk about what’s new in her life, which includes the DVD release of her Comedy Central stand-up special Money Shot on December 21st and an appearance at the Friars Club Roast of Quentin Tarantino.
Perhaps the biggest piece of news Cummings told Stern was that she’s taking a stab into talk show hosting foray. This January she will film a pilot for a late night talk show with E! The idea is to put Cummings on the air after Chelsea Lately. Cummings is a pretty regular guest on Chelsea Handler’s show and Handler herself will serve as the executive producer of the talk show.
If this pilot gets picked up, it will pretty much solidify Chelsea Handler as the comedy mogul she’s been working to be. Successful tours, television show, author, producer, Handler is pretty much doing it all, and bringing her comedian friends along for the ride.
