Staff pick

Comedian and writer Chelsea Handler has pretty much built a career on oversharing. For more than 15 years, Handler has provided her brand of celeb commentary and heavy doses of TMI as the host of a slew of late-night talk shows, and has gone full tilt in many a stand-up special.

Lately, though, Handler has been less about tequila shots and more about advocating therapy talks, as evidenced in her fifth memoir, 2018’s New York Times bestseller Life Will Be the Death of Me... and You Too! The book — which spans everything from crushing on Robert Mueller to life-changing loss — has inspired her latest tour, which is billed as a sit-down comedy show. So, saddle up, strap in, or on — the doctor is in.

Chelsea Handler will perform at 8 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, at the Fillmore; 2115 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-961-5451; Tickets are $35+.
