UPDATE: Chelsea Handler coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater
The parade of late-night hosts through Tampa Bay will continue through the spring. Following recent performances by Jimmy Fallon and Craig Ferguson, and an upcoming gig by Jay Leno, E!'s Chelsea Handler has announced a date at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater.
The comic, author and talk show host will bring her "Uganda Be Kidding Me Live" Tour to town on May 9, according to her website. 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.
The venue hasn't announced ticket prices, but Handler's website says they'll go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Jan. 17. We'll update you when we know more. Click here for details.
***UPDATE*** Tickets are $66.25-$96.25, and they'll go on sale at noon Saturday at the Ruth Eckerd Hall box office. Click here for details.
And if you can't wait that long, Handler will appear at the South Beach Comedy Festival in Miami, which runs April 1-5. Click here for details.
