I just read that Chelsea's net worth is 40 million.If she really wants to do a mitzvah she would refund everyone their money.I was going with a realistic expectation of actually laughing.It happened once and it was more like a smile.Her interviewer was struggling and I thought they lacked chemistry.I think I might have been more entertained eavesdropping on someone's conversation at a bar.Sorry to my daughter..who is a huge fan.I'll have to take you to Wicked now.

1. My son spent $250 for 2 lousy 2nd balcony seats only to sit through 1 hour and 15 minutes of Chelsea processing her grief! 2. Show was supposed to start at 8 pm but Chelsea didn't appear on stage until 8:25. When she finally did appear on stage, she did not interact at all with audience and read from her book for 20 minutes. The "Show" was over at 9:45! 3. People started walking out early in the show and continued walking out 4. Moore Theater owes refunds to everyone who was as disappointed as we were. They should have promoted this as a "Book Reading", not a comedy show.

I went to show thinking the reviews wrong. But when she walked out with that book and started reading word for word. Like we were on kindergarten. I said oh no.. I let her continue, could overlook that if is was funny.. Nope, nothing. Crowd was 75% gay men and women. We had s group of 10 We all walked out, she got our money.. but not our time

Opener was great and hilarious. Chelsea was boring. Would have left after first half hr if I wasn’t with a group of people. Waste of time and money.

1.0 star rating Cheryl from Seattle, Washington


The show starts off with Chelsea explaining she thought the moon and the sun were the same object, and if you think that was the dumbest thing she said you’d be incorrect. As a feminist I was embarrassed and disappointed. Embarrassed by the fact that Ms. Handler pretended to be championing women’s’ rights while ironically spouting the same bigoted points of view her targets used to openly suggest. The fact that her targets were white men rather than people of color or women doesn’t make her point of view any less misinformed. Worse than that I was disappointed by the sheer laziness of her “show” which was a lot of whining about her dogs, lauding herself for being rich and throwing red meat to a crowd of sycophants. There was zero effort put into being witty, clever or funny. Not a single laugh in what was billed as a comedy show. This evening amounted to a $250 ticket to attend an angry rich white woman ranting about white men wearing flip flops. She has talent and used none of it

Instead of vaccinated and horny, it was more like agitated and angry. If you are a drunken woman, you will probably enjoy the show. Otherwise, you may quickly become tired of Chelsea's egotistical rant going on and on berating men then describing over and over how she wants to be penetrated by them. If a male comedian was berating women in the same way, I would not like that either. There are many other ways to spend money than on these show tickets. If I could, I would give the show minus 4 stars because I think we should have been paid to attend. She says she is in therapy. Hopefully that's true and that she doesn't miss any sessions.

And to think with the gorgeous weather, we could have been outside enjoying a great evening. But instead ... this. First off if the gates are to open at 9 for a 930 show, don't make us all line up around the block like cattle then keep us there until after 10pm. Second I don't know what rock they found the opening act but please, put her back there. Then Ms Handler comes out, finally. Hopes were high but were dashed not too far into this excruciating evening as her humour seemed to be appealing to the lowest common denominator. Guttural and crude and she could have been so much more. All nicely wrapped up by a batch of young people sitting right beside me who had to keep a running commentary of YEAH and SCREAMS and HOOTS, WHISTLES etc after every single comment. If there was a gem in Ms Handler's delivery it was drowned out by these groupies and their screeching. So for me, its a big zero for this show, disappointing from the moment we had to join a 2 block long lineup.
