Publisher's Summary

Life doesn't get more hilarious than when Chelsea Handler takes aim with her irreverent wit. Who else would send all-staff emails to smoke out the dumbest people on her show? Now, in this new collection of original essays, the number-one best-selling author of Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea delivers one laugh-out-loud moment after another as she sets her sights on the ridiculous side of childhood, adulthood, and daughterhood.

Family moments are fair game, whether it's writing a report on Reaganomics to earn a Cabbage Patch doll, or teaching her father social graces by ordering him to stay indoors. It's open season on her love life, from playing a prank on her boyfriend (using a ravioli, a fake autopsy, and the Santa Monica pier) to adopting a dog so she can snuggle with someone who doesn't talk. And everyone better duck for cover when her beach vacation turns into matchmaking gone wild. Outrageously funny and deliciously wicked, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang is good good good good!

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."

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Lmao"

    My wife suggested we listen to this during our drive on our honeymoon. "It's a GIRL book" I protested. We got the book anyway. Guess that's one of my many "husband lessons" to learn going forward. To my surprise, it was awesome. We laugh so hard. Guys!!! Get this book on any long drive. It will keep your wife busy!!!

    I'm a casual to semi-avid audiobook listener mainly of the biography/memoir category. Some have been great, some awful but all educational.

    "True Chelsea Handler funny"
    Where does Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang is one of my all time favorite audiobooks. It's funny, familiar, and something you can tune in and out of if you're busy doing something else. The stories aren't told in any stated order so previous knowledge isn't required to join in the fun. The reading by the author herself is also a must hear. If you're not already a fan, my bet is you will be after one chapter.


    What other book might you compare Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang to and why?

    Chelsea Handler is herself unique and the most comparable "other books" would be those she's also authored...Are You There Vodka...Its Me, Chelsea and My Horizontal Life...the latter isn't narrated by the author but I continue to keep my findgers crossed that one day it will be. Aside from these, books by Heather McDonald and other former Chelsea Lately staff members or other comedians telling stories from their life would most likely be similar to this one.


    What about Chelsea Handler’s performance did you like?

    Chelsea is narrating her own story; therefore, you get the feeling you're listening to her thoughts as she's experiencing the things described and at certain points you can almost hear the tenseness in her voice as she tries desperately to hold back the laughter. It draws you in and really makes a difference. Her first book is not narrated by her but all books since have been and in my honest opinion, the first book suffers because of this. It's ultimately as funny and as well written as the rest, but not hearing Chelsea's own voice makes it feel removed by a degree and it hinders my own personal experience.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I definitely didn't want to stop listening...I still don't. It's told in disconnected chapters so it's easy to stop and start without shattering any illusions...I'm not really sure what I meant by that, but what I'm saying is it can be done either way comfortably but you might not want to or be able to wait to continue.


    Any additional comments?

    Chelsea Handler has brought many many smiles to my face over the years. This book was my third experience into her mind and it didn't disappoint. I am on the fence about calling this better than Are You There Vodka...it's at the very least as good. She does a great job as always writing and an equally great job narrating. Whether or not the stories are all true, they will make you laugh and you won't regret purchasing.

    "Chelsea is my BFF"

    OK, so Chelsea isn't really my BFF, but I love every single one of her audio books! She reads them like only she can, and I laugh more listening than I did reading them myself.

    Funny note: If you listen carefully to the chapter 'Water Olympics', you'll hear Chelsea accidentally call her brother Glenn by the name of Gary at one point. Oops? :)

    "Love her and her other books"


    This book, for some reason, it's like she was in a hurry to read it. She speaks extremely fast, when there was no need. In her later audiobooks she does slow it down.

    Always love listening to Chelsea narrate her own books. It's like a private concert. Such crazy stories that I listen to over and over again. Keep writing! Please.

    "Not as good as are you there vodka?"
    What did you love best about Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang?

    I really enjoyed it being voiced by Chelsea Handler.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I enjoyed hearing her pranks on her staff and boyfriend.


    What does Chelsea Handler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice, but if I read it, I guess I'd hear it in her voice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The first chapter was a bit much to handle as a male... the rest of it was great. Really enjoyed the story about the dog.
