Chelsea Handler — superstar comedian, bestselling author and host of E!’s late night talk show, “Chelsea Lately” — joins us at the Alex Theatre for a conversation on the occasion of the release of her upcoming book, Uganda Be Kidding Me.

Uganda Be Kidding Me to be released on March 4 is a 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. Wherever Chelsea Handler travels, one thing is certain: she always ends up in the land of the ridiculous. She sneaks her sharp wit through airport security and delivers her most absurd and hilarious stories.

On safari in Africa, it’s anyone’s guess as to what’s more dangerous: the wildlife or Chelsea. But whether she’s fumbling the seduction of a guide by not knowing where tigers live (Asia, duh) or wearing a bathrobe into the bush because her clothes stopped fitting seven margaritas ago, she’s always game for the next misadventure.

The situation gets down and dirty as she defiles a kayak in the Bahamas, and outright sweaty as she escapes from a German hospital on crutches. When things get truly scary, like finding herself stuck next to a passenger with bad breath, she knows she can rely on her family to make matters even worse. Thank goodness she has the devoted Chunk by her side-except for the time she loses him in Telluride.

Handler’s bestsellers include: My Horizontal Life: A Collection Of One Night Stands; Are You There, Vodka?  It’s Me, Chelsea; and Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang.
