LOS ANGELES, Feb. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Wildly successful comedian Chelsea Handler, known for shaking up the television, literary and stand up world with her outrageous brand of comedy is at it again with the announcement of her 2011 comedy tour – LIES THAT CHELSEA HANDLER TOLD ME.  The all new tour comes on the heels of her sold out 2010 Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang smash tour which was extended three times, drawing more than 250,000 fans in 44 markets and grossing more than $16 million. Brad Wollack, Josh Wolf and Heather McDonald, friends and regulars on her hit show Chelsea Lately, will join Handler for the 19 date stand-up tour set to kick off on May 10th in Boston.  Tickets go on sale February 18th at 10:00 am at and

Handler’s fourth book, LIES THAT CHELSEA HANDLER TOLD ME, is also set for release on May 10, 2011.  This is Handler’s first book with her own imprint, Borderline Amazing/A Chelsea Handler Book, a division of Grand Central Publishing. The book is a collection of stories by her friends and family about the ridiculous lies Handler has told them over the years. The three comedians performing along side Handler on the tour, Wollack, Wolf and McDonald, all wrote chapters for the book and are writers on Handler’s hit show Chelsea Lately, which is consistently the highest rated program on the E! Network.  Each tour stop will include a signing session in support of the new book.

In 2007, Chelsea launched her very successful latenight series Chelsea Lately for E! and since premiering it has consistently been the Network’s most watched series.  In March 2011, Chelsea will launch a companion show, After Lately that will follow the outside lives of the series’ stars: Chelsea Handler, Chuy Bravo, and the gaggle of insane personalities who write for and appear regularly with Chelsea every night.  The series will also go inside the day-to-day lives of Sarah Colonna, Brad Wollack, Chris Franjola, Heather McDonald, Jeff Wild, Johnny Kansas and Steve Marmalstein as they work and play at the E! studios.

On March 28, 2010, her three books took the #1, #2, and #3 spots on the New York Times Best Sellers lists. Her first book, My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One Night Stands (Bloomsbury), was released in the U.S. and over twenty other countries and became a best seller for several weeks running.   Her follow-up book, Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea (Simon Spotlight, 2008), debuted at #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers list.  Her highly-anticipated third book, Chelsea Chelsea, Bang Bang (Grand Central Publishing), debuted at #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers list when it was released in March 2010.  All three books remain on the New York Times Best Sellers lists today (hardcover and paperback).

Belvedere Vodka, Chelsea’s drink of choice, is presenting her concert tour. Belvedere also hosts private after-parties for Chelsea’s gigs across the country.  Known for having a strong point of view on contemporary culture, Belvedere Vodka is a vodka with natural edge, making it the perfect partner for Chelsea and her fans.
