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!

UNDERWHELMED

I was really looking forward to this show but it was a let down. Start with theatre: not comfortable at all- and I midget sized legs. The mics weren’t working and took about 7 tries to figure out. People were up and down all through the show and it was very distracting and I thought disrespectful to Chelsea and guests. As for substance: it was first show so I’ll forgive nerves etc. Chelsea herself is great. She reads the whole first chapter which was perhaps a little too long but she made it funny. Her interviewer came on and that’s where it fell apart. She didn’t know how to engage in a structured dialogue and often spoke more about herself. It was like a big therapy session. I think Chelsea would be able to create lightness and humor with the issues- and it did come out occasionally - but with her side kick, it didn’t work. I’d rather read her book.

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.

MORE LIKE A THERAPY SESSION

Spent a decent amount of money to see my girl. LOVE her....But I have to say...MET said show started at 8pm..She didnt come out until around 9 AND lasted about an hour???? She READ part of her book to us...and then talked to some lady on stage that seemed.like her therapy session....No standup comedy...Was very disappointed....Dont think I will be going to another show....

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.

HORRIBLE. THERAPY SESSION NOT COMEDY

This show was not a stand up comedy. Not only was it not remotely funny, but it was slightly depressing. She just talked about her narcissistic self and her past tragedies. Definitely regret spending the money. Will tell everyone not to see her

UNDERWHELMED

During her Uganda Be Kidding me tour, I saw her perform at Bass Concert Hall in Austin. It was what one expects when attending a comic’s show. Standup! For her Life Will Be The Death of Me tour, I was thrilled to see ACL Mood Theatre in Austin on the circuit. Her presale tickets promoted as including a copy of the book was a bonus. I was really disappointed by the show. She read the first chapter of her book to provide context to the show. I enjoy book readings by the authors of books I love, but this was an odd start to a comedy show. Having to wait twenty minutes past the advertised start time certainly didn’t convince me that she’s attempting to examine her elitist lifestyle. I paid extra for floor seats, but was barely able to see her perform because she sat in a low, leather chair the majority of the show. She brought Connie Britton out to join her in this lounge room setting. While Austin gets excited about any “Friday Night Lights” actor, I paid to see a comedy show. They basically had conversations about drugs, therapy, Chelsea’s crisis of consciousnesses following the election of Trump, whereby she realizes she has gotten everything she has wanted and therefore missed being relatable. I’m empathetic to her coming to terms with the death of her brother, look forward to reading her book, but wish I hadn’t spent a day’s salary on something I could have easily watched the next time she is promoting the book on a talk show.
