Society's wits make biting observations that often reveal harsh truths but even more often reveal the need for bite-wound sterilization.

Bestselling author, talk-show host, actress, and comedienne Chelsea Handler corrals her magnificent wit, leaving audiences blue in the face on her brand-new tour. Like a lush Pied Piper with a sailor’s mouth, Chelsea has garnered a legion of followers with her hit E! talk show Chelsea Lately, its sur-reality addendum After Lately, and a flight of bestselling books. With her latest tome, Lies That Chelsea Told Me, in tow, the unapologetically brash superstar skewers celebrity culture like a one-woman Statler and Waldorf while extolling the virtues of potato-based libations.
Prepping the audience with guffaw gauze, fellow Chelsea Lately scribes and roundtable regulars Sarah Colonna and Chris Franjola disprove Einstein’s theory that writers aren’t funny in opening sets full of amusing anecdotes and heartwarming self-deprecation.
