Chelsea Handler knows how to make an entrance.
As this week's guest host of The Daily Show, the comedian opened with a bang.
On Monday, she began her monologe with this joke:
"There's a lot of exciting news, and I'm on Ecstasy, so let's get started."
Handler doubled down on Tuesday:
"If you watched the show last night you will know I was on Ecstasy and I was way too high to find my way out of this building. So I am back here again tonight and now I am high on ayahuasca."
The audience roared, though few of them probably even knew what ayahuasca - the jungle drug of the Amazon - is.
Later she clarified: "I'm really at Burning Man. That's why I'm on ayahuasca."
For her third night, Handler said she would do the show sober as an experiment.
She then topped herself with a number of drug jokes.
During a segment about being "childless by choice," Handler commented as she showed off phone pics:
"I am miserable. I'm miserable on the beach. Here I am miserable on the top of a mountain. Here I am miserable scuba diving. And then I'm miserable again smoking a joint in a hot tub."
Though she's not a mom, Handler noted she's a great aunt to her nieces and nephews:
"I'm crushing that role. Guess who gave each one of them their first edible? This girl!”
Later in the segment, Handler visited an OB-GYN, who gave her a bagful of pharmaceutical medication. Handler exclaimed before taking one:
"Oh my God, I love pills."
