US comedian, author and talk show host Chelsea Handler is heading to Australia in November, touring her new live stand-up show, “Uganda Be Kidding Me”.

Best known as the outspoken host of her late night talk show “Chelsea Lately” where she holds her own as the only female in the male-heavy late night arena, Handler will bring her live stand up show to Australia hot off a 37-date tour of the US.

Having recently announced she will depart the E! US cable network in August after seven years as the host of “Chelsea Lately”, Handler has signed with streaming service Netflix to produce comedy specials and a talk show from 2016.

She was last in the country in 2011 to film several episodes of “Chelsea Lately”. This time round, Handler will be touring the live show in support of her fifth book “Uganda Be Kidding Me” and will be taking her show to audiences in Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne.

The book is a collection of essays made up of her favourite travel stories while also giving travellers her guide to etiquette, hot spots, and answers to some of the most frequently asked travel questions.

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 9am Friday July 25th, 2014. My Live Nation members have access to an exclusive pre-sale beginning 9am Wednesday July 23rd. For complete details visit their website
