E! host Chelsea Handler brings standup to Clearwater
The parade of late-night hosts through Tampa Bay continues. We can now add Chelsea Handler to the list that includes an upcoming gig by Jay Leno (Feb. 9 and March 29) and recent performances by Jimmy Fallon and Craig Ferguson.
The outspoken host of Chelsea Lately helms TV’s top-rated late night talk show with women 18-34. She's been a refreshing addition to the world of male-dominated late-night talk shows with her very funny comments on pop culture and entertainment news while interacting with her celebrity guests and panel of comedians.
She is hitting the road for a national stand-up comedy tour in support of her fifth book, Uganda Be Kidding Me, an absurd collection of essays that comes out in March.
Handler has announced a May 9 show at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater. No time has been announced, but when Handler performed at Tampa’s Straz Center in 2010, tickets proved so hot that she had to add a second show. Tickets will go on sale Jan. 17.
