In a clip from the comic’s forthcoming Netflix special, “Evolution,” she says about her decision to not have kids, “know when you don’t have the skills to raise a baby.”

Handler also feels those making this decision should get a little something out of it.

“We should get a carbon credit for not polluting mass population.”

Handler also comments on being more of an animal parent than a human being one.

“I have rescued nine dogs in my life – I’ve returned four,” she quips.

“Like any other animal lover here tonight, when you have a type, you stick to the type, and my type is slow and overweight. That is what I’m looking for in an animal,” she continues.

“Evolution” was filmed in June at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium during a stop on Handler’s “Vaccinated & Horny” tour.

According to Netflix the special “let’s loose on Handler’s life, including her choice to remain childless and alone (with the exception of her dogs), dating during the pandemic while her family invades her home and her vision for a future where men don’t wear flip-flops.”

“Revolution” begins streaming on Netflix Dec. 27.
