Chelsea Handler to head out on "Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me" tour

Chelsea Handler is a liar and she’s celebrating that with a brand new book and tour. Following the success of her “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang” tour, Handler is spreading those lies all over the country on her new “Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me” tour.  The book, “Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me,” is a new collection of stories from her friends and family about, what else, the untruths told by their ultra-successful comedian pal.

Comedians Heather McDonald, Brad Wollack, and Josh Wolf, all regulars on the “Chelsea Lately” roundtable, all wrote chapters for the book and are also joining her for the 19-date tour.

The tour is set to kick off on May 10th in Boston’s Agganis Arena and continue on through June 25th at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, WA.

Tickets for the tour are set to go on sale Friday, February 18th on Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.

Meanwhile, “Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me,” is set to be released on May 10th and is sure to be another best-seller for Handler.

As if that weren’t enough, we’re going to see even more of Handler and her stand-up friends on the new show “After Lately,” which premiere’s next month on E!.
