Chelsea Handler: Vaccinated and Horny Tour

The Wellmont Theater

Chelsea Handler is vaccinated, horny and ready to get back on stage. The comedian is launching a standup comedy show, the “Vaccinated and Horny Tour”. Handler wants the world to know that she is vaccinated — and horny, hence the title of her latest show.

“Never have I been so confident about my decision-making in remaining childless and alone than I did during this pandemic. I can’t count how many times I high-fived myself every time a friend used the term ‘homeschooling,’ ” Handler tells Variety. “But, as a permanent single professional, I do like to get my groove on, and the best way to get that across is to make it the title of the tour. Now, everyone will know that I’m horny. And that I’m vaccinated.”

Handler — who most recently received rave reviews for her HBO Max standup special “Chelsea Handler: Evolution” — believes that laughter is the best medicine after a global pandemic and to bring people back together.

“I’m so excited to get back on stage because this is the time for people to come together in large groups again, and I want to be a reason people come together. My job is to bring joy and laughter and comfort to as many people as I can. This is the moment to light up and live it up,” she says. “I’ve done a few shows at some smaller clubs to prepare for this tour, and the feeling of laughter in large groups is the thing that everyone will realize they missed the most. We have to heal ourselves, and the fastest way to heal is through laughter.”

“Vaccinated and Horny” marks Handler’s first tour since 2019. Prior to the pandemic, she went on her “Life Will Be the Death of Me Tour,” based on her most recent book.
