Weekend Herald - Canvas
Chelsea Handler is most well-known as the talk show host who routinely insulted her celebrity guests and would say quite literally anything she thought. She is returning to our shores with a stand-up tour following the recent release of her book Life Will Be the Death of Me. Unlike many tell-it-like-it-is comedians, Handler has a strong social conscience and produced a feature documentary focusing on white privilege that will be released on Netflix later this year. That doesn’t mean her show won’t offend some people, it almost certainly will, but it does mean she’ll mostly be punching up — and that’s always good for a laugh.
