Chelsea Handler Memoir Release Will Kick Off 17-City Tour

This April, #1 New York Times bestselling author Chelsea Handler is back with her first book in five years and her first memoir: LIFE WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME (Spiegel & Grau Hardcover, on-sale 4/9).

In support of the book, Handler will embark on a 17-city nationwide tour titled “Life Will Be the Death of Me: Chelsea Handler’s Sit-Down Comedy Tour.” Produced by Live Nation, the tour will kick off April 11 in Boston, MA and feature Chelsea in conversation, discussing stories from the new book and more. The tour will also make stops in Austin, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and more before wrapping June 1 in San Francisco, CA. See full itinerary below. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning this Friday, February 8 at 10am local time at Each ticket will include a copy of the book.

LIFE WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME promises to show a side of Chelsea not previously shared- ugly-crying in front of her therapist (after he offers her an orange), finding her mojo as an activist, digging deep into the pain of her childhood, and finding a new way to use her voice. The book also has plenty of what Chelsea fans are more accustomed to. brash candor and self-deprecating humor that fueled Chelsea’s previous bestselling essays collections and wildly successful TV shows: a shaman, some well-placed security cameras, an array of edibles, friends, assistants, siblings, and an overweight, emotionally withholding Chow Chow.

Chelsea Handler is a five-time New York Times bestselling author with titles including My Horizontal Life (2005), Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea (2008), Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang (2010), Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me (2011), and Uganda Be Kidding Me (2014). In 2012, Time named her one of the most influential people in the world as part of its annual “Time 100.”
