Chelsea Handler is a unique commodity in the annals of late night. For starters, she’s a woman. As the host of E!’s groundbreaking talk show Chelsea Lately and the author of several New York Times best-selling comedy novels, she’s also pretty damn funny and fearless with the subjects she tackles, whether it’s about the biggest ego in Hollywood or the latest starlet to wake up face down in a Hollywood trash bin. She took on the role of a travel writer in her latest best-selling book, Uganda Be Kidding Me, and you can hear her vodka-soaked takes on the safaris of Africa and the strange conveniences of kayaks in the Bahamas as part of her Uganda Be Kidding Me Live tour at 8 p.m. Friday at the Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie, 1001 Performance Place. Tickets start at $29.50 and are available atverizontheatre.com.
