NOT WHAT I EXPECTED

I had seen Chelsea Handler before and read two of her books. I was very much looking forward to seeing her perform again. Unfortunately, though, the show did not elicit many laughs from me or other members of the audience. My friends and I agreed after about 45 minutes that it was time to leave. I hope that her future performances are more entertaining.

CHELSEA HANDLER SHOULD GO BACK TO DRINKING

I've been to several other Chelsea shows and it is absolutely not worth the money this time. People were leaving in droves last night, it was that bad. We expected comedy and instead we got a serious discussions (much like if you were on Dr. Phil)sprinkled with wise-ass comments. It's great she's turning her life around, but please, for those of us expecting an actual comedy show, we would have rather put hot pokers in our eyes. Go back to drinking, Chelsea!

NOT WORTH THE TIME OR MONEY

I was hoping to hear something funny and witty. Instead I listened to Chelsea talk about her guilt over making lots of money, why she needed a psychologist, and boring conversation between her and her host. This must have been her way to recouping her psychologist fees. Can't believe I paid for this. Watching laundry tumble in my dryer would have been more entertaining.

FALSE ADVERTISING NOT A COMEDY TOUR, BUT A BOOK TOUR

Do not waste your hard earned money. We walked out halfway through. We thought it was a comedy tour because the ticket says comedy tour. We arrived and they handed out books. Then, we went in and it started about 40 minutes later than the recorded message said. They couldn’t get the microphones to work. Then she read the first chapter of her book and talked about therapy and her brother who died when she was 9 and cried and her guest talked about therapy and being abused as a child. It was a book tour, not a comedy tour and I felt completely hoodwinked and would like my money back.

TERRIBLE

Completely disappointing. We wanted a stand up comedy experience and it was NOT even close. It was a complete waste of time and money. Chelsea read off of her book in the beginning. Not organic AT ALL then invited a journalist on stage and the interview was terrible. Disappointed.

HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED

Attended the show in Detroit at the Fillmore and after 30 minutes walked out!! The platform of the show was depressing and very boring!! I expected humor and all she talked about was her issues and tragedy as she was being interviewed by some other unknown girl. If you want people to known how you have changed Let people read that in your book. Will not ever pay to see her again. Highly disappointed

OVERINDULGENT

Wow, what a disappointment!! Chelsea’s performance was lazy at best! She opened the show reading from her book?? Then she takes a seat for the rest of the show and is being interviewed by a not particularly creative or insightful young woman. It was if she didn’t even care that she had an audience! Why give us the book if she was just going to spend 20 minutes reading it to us! The format of the show was I found her to be narcissistic and not funny at all Save your $. Totally not worth it. Kind of makes you feel taken!!
