Perhaps best known as the outspoken host of E!’s late night talk show, Chelsea Lately, Handler continues to offer international audiences her fearless honesty and tongue-in-cheek commentary every weeknight. “I’ve decided to go on tour and support my new book, Uganda Be Kidding Me. I think we all know how much I love the sound of my own voice” said Handler.
Handler’s latest book Uganda Be Kidding Me will release on March 4th. In this hilarious and absurd collection of travel essays, Chelsea delivers some of her favorite stories while also giving travelers her (not to be believed) guide to etiquette, hot spots and answers to some of the most asked travel questions.
In 2010, Chelsea partnered with Live Nation and Belvedere Vodka for the “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang” comedy tour, which was extended three times, drawing more than 250,000 fans in 44 markets and grossing more than $16 million. In 2011, she brought along her friends and regulars from Chelsea Lately on her “Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me” comedy tour, which sold out in the top 20 U.S. markets.
