Chelsea Handler Conducts Cringeworthy Interview With Alison Brie

As a regular viewer, I’m more than familiar with the sometimes unscripted, in-your-face interviewing carelessness of Chelsea Handler.

That doesn’t mean I was prepared for Community/Mad Men/Five-Year Engagement star Alison Brie to tell a story about her perversity at age seven.

We all know kids are perverts, but the topic of their unknowing sexuality or joking raunchiness is usually a taboo subject strictly limited to small gatherings of parents behind closed doors. Not national television. 

Maybe I’m uptight but this hot dog-related story made me uncomfortable and as usual, Chelsea did nothing to steer the topic in another direction.

Handler: “You’re a little dirty girl, were you dirty like this as a little kid?” 

Brie: “I used to do little dirty skits for my family. But that sounds inappropriate, for my family’s friends.

“My signature sketch was this commercial for edible wieners. And picture me 7-years old and I would just waddle out for the audience of our parents with this hotdog between my legs, under a trench coat. And I’d be like ‘Are you ever out on the street and you’re hungry, but you’re also a man and you have a wiener?’

Brie added that it was “very innocent” but I much preferred the discussion about imitating Emily Blunt’s accent or the essay she wrote.

[Brie contributed to the book Worst Laid Plans: When Bad Sex Happens to Good People where she writes about trying (and failing) to convert a gay man]
