Comedian Chelsea Handler is one funny chick. That's why LAist thought it was a good idea to fire a few questions at her and get her take on the perks of LA's comedy scene, the best spot in LA to have sex, and to find out what she's doing sharing the stage with a couple porn stars at tonight's debut XXX Comedy Night show at the Hollywood Improv.

You're a regular on the LA comedy club circuit. If somebody has never checked out an LA comedy club, what are they missing (besides you of course)?
The spinach dip at the Improv. It's the dip that keeps on giving.

You're a Jersey Girl who has settled in Los Angeles. Is there anything about LA that reminds you of home?
The grass in Beverly Hills.

What's the single most stereotypical "LA" experience you've had since living here?
Having my dentist tell me about his screenplay.

Where's the wildest place in LA you can think of to have sex?
On the bull at the Saddle Ranch. Or with the bull at the Saddle Ranch.

You've appeared on a bunch of E! countdown shows including the "Most Awesome Moments in Entertainment." But what we really want to know is, what is the Least Awesome Moment in Entertainment?
The Jerry Springer Show.

Chelsea takes on pickup lines, one-night stands, and porn star names after jump.

We're sure you've had more than your share of comedians hit on you over the years. What's the best and worst pickup line that a comedian has ever tried on you?
The best: "Looking for some penetration?" The worst: "You lookin' for me?" Answer - no.

You wrote the book on one-night stands — literally. So...what's the secret to a great one night stand?
Leaving through the window.

What's the best way for a woman to pick up a guy at a bar?
Walk up to him and say, "I'm extremely intoxicated and won't put up a fight."

What's a nice girl like you doing sharing the stage with porn stars on a XXX comedy show tonight?
I want to help porn stars feel better about their bodies. They're obviously shy and I feel like I can be of help in that department.

Speaking of XXX Comedy Night (which is presented by adult entertainment powerhouse Vivid Entertainment), we figured we had to ask — if you did porn, what would your porn name be?
Chesty McMuffin.
