Wherever Chelsea Handler travels, one thing is certain: she always ends up in the land of the ridiculous. Now, in this uproarious collection, she sneaks her sharp wit through airport security and delivers her most absurd and hilarious stories ever.
On safari in Africa, it's anyone's guess as to what's more dangerous: the wildlife or Chelsea. But whether she's fumbling the seduction of a guide by not knowing where tigers live (Asia, duh) or wearing a bathrobe into the bush because her clothes stopped fitting seven margaritas ago, she's always game for the next misadventure.
The situation gets down and dirty as she defiles a kayak in the Bahamas, and outright sweaty as she escapes from a German hospital on crutches. When things get truly scary, like finding herself stuck next to a passenger with bad breath, she knows she can rely on her family to make matters even worse. Thank goodness she has the devoted Chunk by her side - except for the time she loses him in Telluride.
Complete with answers to the most frequently asked traveler's questions, hot travel trips, and travel etiquette, none of which should be believed, Uganda Be Kidding Me has Chelsea taking on the world, one laugh-out-loud incident at a time.

Love, Love, Loved this whole book it's hard to pick a "best" but I think the best is that Chelsea Handler read it to me.
Busy full time student and part-time fitness instructor. I'm a sucker for lattes and wine.
If you've read and enjoyed Chelsea's other books, than you'd also like this. Hysterical reaction to a breakup. You can tell she's getting older and her interests are changing, but she's still amazing.
She is so brave to share such humiliating events and her outrageous behavior. This will give you a schadenfreude fix for a month.
I have to admit, after having read every single one of her other books, I was skeptical about this one because I figured that at SOME point she had to run out of funny material.
I could not have been MORE WRONG. This is the story of Chelsea and her somehow comparably hilarious group of friends as they go on safari in Africa. The chapters are literally laugh out loud funny. Listening to Chelsea tell her story on Audible added immeasurable amounts of hilarity to her already
I recommend this to anyone who needs or wants a good laugh! It was a perfect, get through the work day book. Loved even more that Chelsea narrates it herself. Love all her books.
I would. Chelsea Handler isn't selling herself short with this one, she's back with full force. Although I wasn't wholly sold during the first couple of chapters (I'm not jumping on the racism train here, an easy one to hitch regarding the title), I just wasn't having my usual laugh out loud moments as I did with Vodka and Bang Bang (which can be very embarrassing on the train).
Yet, that is also probably one of the main reasons I would give this one another go. Maybe I was missing something during my first run-through.
I have. All of them.
Well, Chelsea Handler for one. Her deadpan, blasé and verbally violent delivery is what makes the audiobook form of her books so great, if not maybe even more enjoyable than reading them (except for My Horizontal Life, which wasn't read by her and sounds more like a soft core Cinemax feature rather than the blue comedy piece it should be).
In fact, she's one of the only writers I prefer to listen to on audiobook, due to the way she contributes to her essays, than to read her books.
Uganda Be Kidding Me, despite its shortcomings in the beginning, I felt was really worth the wait.
It had some funny moments, but overall was annoying to hear description after description of how entitled and clueless about the world she says she is. Maybe it's just the character she plays, but I'm not sure. At least it was not that long
listened on the train from Wexford to Dublin and laughed out loud several times if you are a Chelsea fan would highly recommend it.
Epic book I expected nothing less than stomach aching laughter from start to finish and it far surpassed that, can't wait for the next book
"Okay I guess."
I love Chelsea and I heard about this book from her Netflix special. I decided to get the audiobook as I thought it would be quite entertaining. I wasn't wrong. This was a humorous book and I really enjoyed it. It took me a really long time to read it but it was okay I guess haha.
