New tour dates announced for Chelsea Handler

US Comedian and talk-show host Chelsea Handler will be bringing her acclaimed stand-up show, Uganda Be Kidding Me to Australia in November and promoters, Live Nation, have announced a further Sydney date for the Opera House.

Best known as the outspoken host of late night talk show, Chelsea Lately, Handler’s live show is certain to deliver an evening of no-holds-barred comedy.

The tour marks Handler’s first Aussie performances since 2011 when she landed down under to record several episodes of her TV show. The Uganda Be Kidding Me tour follows on from the comedian’s recent book, of the same name, a collection of travel tales and absurd essays.

“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.

Tickets for the second Sydney show on Thursday November 20 will go on sale at 9am this Thursday, August 14. My Live Nation members can be amongst the first to secure tickets during the pre-sale beginning 12pm today, For complete details, visit:
