Publisher's Summary

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.

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

    "Hysterical. As usual"

    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.

    "Very entertaining."

    She is so brave to share such humiliating events and her outrageous behavior. This will give you a schadenfreude fix for a month.

    "Chelsea gets funnier and funnier"

    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

    "Good not so great!"

    The whole books is great, she has talent, she's funny but sometimes I felt like she was rushing to finish the book, other than that she's just amazingly entertaining.

    "Awesome book to listen too!"

    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.

    Story
    "With its shortcomings, still well worth the wait"
    Would you listen to Uganda Be Kidding Me again? Why?

    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.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Chelsea Handler? Why or why not?

    I have. All of them.


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

    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.


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

    I did.


    Any additional comments?

    Uganda Be Kidding Me, despite its shortcomings in the beginning, I felt was really worth the wait.

    "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.
