America's most biting talk show host, Chelsea Handler, is coming to London, and she's the kind of person you love or hate.
Promoting her new book "Uganda Be Kidding Me", Handler is most well-known for her eponymous television show on the E! Entertainment Channel Network, Chelsea Lately, which she's hosted for seven years. It's a fast and funny talk/comedy show where she and three other comedians (and her Mexican sidekick nugget Chuey Bravo) discuss, and make jokes of, the day's news. The second part of the show is where Handler interviews A-list celebrities (most of whom seem to be friends of hers), like Jennifer Aniston, Charlize Theron, and Eric Bana. And as Handler is Los Angeles- based, she rubs shoulders with these people at parties and other events in the Los Angeles area.
Chelsea Lately airs at midnight here in the U.K., a bit late for some, but it's worth staying up for.
Handler has written five books, all bestsellers, including her funny titled second book "Are You There Vodka? It's Me Chelsea." Her new book, "Uganda Be Kidding Me", immediately topped the best sellers list when it came out.
Handler has been all over America promoting the book, and now she's coming to the UK. Handler will be in Dublin on Friday, July 11th, and on Saturday July 12th she will be appearing at London's Palladium Theatre. There is still tickets available for both shows, so if you are a fan of hers (or not), now's the time to experience Handler's sarcastic and edgy humor in a no-holds-barred live setting.
You won't be seeing much of Handler after September, she has decided to end her talk show. What's she going to do next? She's signed a contract with Netflix to have exclusive rights to her next television show. She's said that Netflix is the cutting edge new kid on the block, so she's going to them. Chelsea, we will miss Chelsea Lately!
