Chelsea Handler: New book, tour coming in March

photoChelsea Handler's new book of humorous essays, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang, will be published in March -- and Chelsea is hitting the road to promote it.

Handler's tour, sponsored by Belvedere Vodka (there's an appropriate match!), kicks off March 10 at Chicago's Rosemont Theater and will take the "Chelsea Lately" host to 21 cities, including Phoenix, San Francisco, Denver, and Boston. Tickets will go on sale beginning this Friday.

The book will also be available in an unabridged audio version, narrated by Handler herself.

No reviews yet, but here are a few excerpts provided by the publisher:

Being unpopular: "My parents couldn't have been more unreasonable when it came to fads or clothes that weren't purchased at a pharmacy."

Living with her boyfriend: "He's similar to a large toddler, the only difference being he doesn't cry when he wakes up."

Appreciating her brother: "He's a certified public accountant, and I have a real life."

Arm-wrestling a maid of honor: "It wasn't her strength that intimidated me. It was the starry way her eyes focused on me, like Mike Tyson getting ready to feed."

    Chelsea, Birmingham, Alabama is a great place to visit, and a wonderful place for a book signing. I should know as I've lived everywhere, and B'ham is the best. Loved seeing your show in L.A. and hope to be in the audience again real soon
