Stand-up comedian, talk-show host, and author Chelsea Handler will bring her hilarious wit and curiosity to the Mirage stage for a one-night only show June 26, 2020.
Handler is best known as host of E’s Chelsea Lately. She played host for seven years before beginning a new show, which launched on Netflix in May 2016. Chelsea tackled today’s tough issues with the same wit and curiosity Handler’s fans love. Throughout the series, she discussed such topics as international cultures, alternative lifestyles, education, health, sports, parenting, politics, and more.
Handler can also be seen in Netflix’s documentary series Chelsea Does. In each of the four films, she explores a range of subjects from marriage to drugs, to racism and Silicon Valley.
In 2018, Handler left her Netflix show to focus on her work as an activist by joining forces with EMILY’s List to help elect more women to public office, register people to vote and campaign for candidates who are fighting for women’s rights. She also has partnered with the Karam Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to build a better future for Syria by developing innovative education programs for refugee youth, distributing smart aid to families and funding sustainable development projects initiated by Syrians for Syrians.
On April 9, 2019, Handler released her sixth book and first memoir, Life Will Be the Death of Me, which debuted at No. 1 on The New York Times Best-Seller List. In support of the book’s release, Handler embarked on a sit-down and stand-up comedy tour and launched a podcast with iHeartRadio. She also re-joined Netflix to release Hello, Privilege. It’s Me, Chelsea. The documentary follows her as she confronts her personal and cultural impacts around white privilege.
Handler’s previous best-selling books include 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 2014’s Uganda Be Killing Me.
Handler has been honored by TIME magazine as one of its annual TIME 100: Glamour magazine as one of its 2011 Women of the Year; and the Human Rights Campaign, which gave her its Ally for Equality Award in 2009.
