Superstar comedian Chelsea Handler is coming to the Wild West Comedy Festival in support of the release of her fifth book, Uganda Be Kidding Me. She will be performing at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Jackson Hall on Saturday, May 17th. Handler is one of the most exciting and successful figures in the entertainment industry as a stand up comedian, actress, bestselling author and perhaps most recognized as host of her late night show “Chelsea Lately.” Her acting credits include films “Fun Size” opposite Johnny Knoxville, “Hop” with James Marsden and Russell Brand, and director McG’s recent action-comedy “This Means War,” as well as multiple television appearances. Handler is one of the leading nonfiction authors with four bestselling books in print. Her latest book, Uganda Be Kidding Me, is a hilarious and absurd collection of travel essays in which 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.
I’m a HUGE Chelsea fan and will be LIVE tweeting from downtown Nashville with my little sister for the show and pre-show drinks. Follow along at #WWCF2013
