Chelsea Handler has many titles. She is a comedian, actress, writer, television host, producer, and activist. From 2007 to 2014, she hosted the late night talk show Chelsea Lately on E! network. She released “Chelsea Does”, a documentary series that aired on Netflix. Time magazine even named Handler one of the 100 most influential people on its annual Time 100 list in 2012. Basically, Chelsea Handler can do it all.
And now Chelsea Handler, already a New York Times bestselling author, is releasing her first memoir, Life Will Be the Death of Me. Its release date is April 9, 2019. The book is a record of Handler’s “Year of self-sufficiency.” She opens up about her decision to begin therapy to wild stories about edibles and shamans. Handler writes that the most important things in her life she has come to appreciate are her loved ones and her work as an activist. “My goal is to be better informed, raise my voice, and participate in a more meaningful way,” she tweeted after her Netflix talk show ended in 2017.
Handler is celebrating the upcoming release of her book with a comedy tour. She will begin her 17-city nationwide tour in Boston on April 11 and end in San Francisco on June 1. She will stop in major cities like Austin, Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. Tickets go on sale February 8 on her website, ChelseaHandler.com. Each purchase of a ticket includes a copy of her book.
