You might snuggle with your iPad all day, but not Chelsea Handler. It and other fancy modern gadgets are the absolute bane of her existence.
"I don't know anything about tech. It makes me so frustrated," she moans in a new Netflix documentary. "I want to throw (stuff) all the time. ... I have no patience for this (stuff)."
At least Handler is ready to admit she needs help. "Chelsea Does Silicon Valley" is one installment of a four-part series that has the potty-mouthed talk-show host, comedian and author exploring various topics of personal and universal fascination. Other segments touch on marriage, racism and drugs.
The series provides a tonal prelude to her new late-night talk show, which debuts in May on Netflix, where it will be streaming three times a week. Now, if Handler can only figure out what streaming is.
In the tech documentary, she tries to do just that by traveling to what she calls "Silicone Valley" and having a very patient Netflix CEO Reed Hastings explain it to her.
"I can't be the only nimrod around," she insists.
Other highlights include visits to Twitter, Wired magazine, a coding class for youths (who are much more tech savvy than she is) and Redpoint Ventures, where she pitches her own strange app.
At Redpoint, Handler also gets a lesson in the Silicon Valley dress code from Geoff Yang and assesses the dating prospects of the men she has come across.
"A lot of these guys can't get any action, right?" she says. "Until they make their money. And then it's probably easier."
"Chelsea Does" premieres Friday at the Sundance Film Festival before dropping Saturday on Netflix.
