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.

Her father. He's so hilarious and stories about him get me every time.

Yes - they are all amazing and this one is no different.

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

Not really - I like to spread it out over a week or so.

Raw, Funny, Keep Guessing...

Only a few months into discovering the wit, and radical honesty of Chelsea Handler, has an advantage of total emmersion into all things Chelsea. Her stories are unusually, humorous. So much so I found my self asking myself, is she for real??? My favorite parts were the slumber party discovery and her dad's rental property dream or nightmare, depending on who is talking about it. I love that she is who she is, loved or hated no in between.

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!!!

Chelsea Chelsea thank you thank you

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.

Funny, witty, dry, crass, first rate humor.

Chelsea Handler is one of my favorite authors. I found this book to be very useful 👌 for long car rides and for everyday listening. a Chelsea Handler book was my first audiobook and I'm very glad I got this title as well.

the experience of having her narrate the book changes the entire experience of the book. her nonchalant and deadpan way of telling the jokes lends to her classic wit. I deffo recommend this.
