ARE YOU THERE, HEF?

E! late-night host Chelsea Handler posed for Playboy‘s December 2009 issue, so these days she’s probably busy doing press interviews, tipping her airbrusher, and hanging with Hef at the Grotto. That leaves her revolving roundtable of stand-up comics with a little extra time on their hands; because they aren’t exactly the Girls of the Pac-10 themselves, they’re hitting the road, billed instead as the Comedians of Chelsea Lately. Taking the stage at the Midland (1228 Main) tonight at 8: Whitney Cummings; the Sklar Brothers; Jo Koy; Josh Wolf; and Chelsea’s diminutive personal assistant, Chuy Bravo. They’ll bring fresh stand-up sets and perhaps their own personal takes on their employer’s extracurricular gig as a pinup for hecklers and insomniacs. Ticket prices range from $27.75 to $47.75. To order, see midlandkc.com or call the Midland box office at 816-283-9921.
