Chelsea Handler Announces 2014 Uganda Be Kidding Me Live Tour Including A Stop At Ruth Eckerd Hall On Friday, May 9 At 7 pm
Tickets Go On Sale Saturday, January 18 At Noon
Superstar comedian, author and talk show host, Chelsea Handler, is set to embark on a national stand-up comedy tour in support of the release of her fifth book, Uganda Be Kidding Me. The tour includes a stop at Ruth Eckerd Hall on Friday, May 9 at 7 pm. Tickets go on sale to the general public Saturday, January 18 at noon. More information and tickets are available at www.chelseahandler.com. 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 4. 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. A leading nonfiction author, Handler had three books ranked at #1, #2 and #3 on the bestseller lists simultaneously on March 28, 2010 and currently has four bestselling books in print, a remarkable feat for any author. Her upcoming Uganda Be Kidding Me will be the third book published by her Grand Central imprint “Borderline Amazing/A Chelsea Handler Book.” The first Was Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me and the second was Ross Mathew's Man Up: Tales Of My Delusional Self-Confidence, which released in May 2013. Her first book, My Horizontal Life: A Collection Of One Night Stands (Bloomsbury Publishing), sold more than a million copies in more than 20 countries. Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me,Chelsea (Simon Spotlight), Chelsea ChelseaBang Bang (Grand Central Publishing) and her most recent Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me (Borderline Amazing/A Chelsea Handler Book) all debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. 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 ChelseaHandler Told Me comedy tour, which sold out in the top 20 U.S. markets. Tickets are priced at $96.25, $91.25 and $66.25 and are available at the Ruth Eckerd Hall Ticket Office, by calling 727.791.7400 or visiting www.RuthEckerdHall.com. Pre-show dining is also available.
