Loni Love is best known for keeping viewers in stitches on “Chelsea Lately.” But fans can see her up close this weekend when she performs at the Improv in Schaumburg.
Love has been a fixture on the E! comedy series since its inception when friend and fellow comedian Chelsea Handler asked her to be a part of the show.
“That show has been great in helping to introduce me in the comedy world,” Love said. “[Chelsea] really helps standup comedy because it is the only show where you can see comics every night.”
The comedian recently penned a relationship advice book, “Love Him or Leave Him: But Don’t Get Stuck with the Tab.”
“I have so many fans and friends that ask me questions about relationships,” she said. “I decided to use my experience to write a book to help them out.”
The comedian took a crack at hosting a talk show this summer. Love is waiting to hear word if the test run of “The Talk” will be picked up for a full season. The show is hosted by Love, Tamar Braxton, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley.
“What makes it different from other talk shows is because it is all ethnic women that are a little younger,” Love said. “We stick to topics like relationships, pop culture and celebrities.”
