Review: Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang – Chelsea Handler

This is a book that has been on my to be read pile for the last two years and I’m just getting around to reading it now, but better late than never, right? Right.

Chelsea Handler is one of the funniest comedians on television today, she’s able to hold her own among some other veterans in late night television, because she’s all about keeping it real and she always says exactly what’s on her mind, which makes it all that much funnier. I was first introduced to Chelsea Handler about 5 years ago when I first read the ever popular, “Are you there Vodka, it’s me Chelsea“. Now with 4 successful books under her belt, including the book I just finished titled, “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang” it’s as if everything she touches turns to gold.

As I mentioned earlier, this book may have taken me a long time to read, but I’m so glad I took the time to spend my Sunday afternoon with it rather than cleaning (as originally planned). There is nowhere that Chelsea won’t go, she shares private and embarrassing stories with such confidence that your shock factor begins to diminish very quickly.

Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang” remains in the same format as her other work, a collection of essays that share the day to day life of this hilarious comedian. As a reader, you’ll hear the terms she laid out for her parents  in an effort to get the “right” cabbage patch doll. You’ll hear of hilarious vacations with friends and staff that result in rolling an intoxicated woman around on a chaise lounge. There’s even a story that involves a combination of vicodin, lean pockets and Abigail Breslin.

If you’ve ever watched Chelsea Lately and laughed out loud (which I do all the time) then you will love this hilarious collection of antics that is Chelsea Handler’s life. She’s funny, quirky and out there (to say the least). You can also pick up her newest book, “Lies that Chelsea Handler Told Me

    I am so glad you wrote about this… I am late to the party on Chelsea Handler, as only starting getting and watching her show recently, and then saw her on Rosie recently and loved her humour and her honesty. Have not read any of her books, and am curious… now I want to read this one!
