Comedian, actress, author and television host Chelsea Handler, will perform stand-up comedy Sunday at The Venue at Horseshoe Casino in Hammond.

Handler is known for her E! Television network show, “Chelsea Lately” and for her five books that have appeared on the New York Times best-seller list, four of which have taken the No. 1 ranking. The books also pay homage to Handler’s wit with titles like “My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands,” “Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea,” “Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me” and “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang.”

Handler released a book in 2014 titled, “Uganda Be Kidding Me” and has a Netflix stand-up show, “Uganda Be Kidding Me: Live.”

Shannon McKellar, vice president of marketing for the Horseshoe Casino, is beyond thrilled to have Handler take the stage.

“Chelsea is the superstar comedienne, a great name in talent, and a good fit for the Horseshoe Casino.”
Handler has a knack for being bold defying barriers. In 2010, Handler was the second woman to ever be the sole host of the MTV Video Music Awards, which was a surprise, even to some MTV executives.

“She is a very outspoken comedienne that a diverse audience can connect with,” said McKellar.

Horseshoe Casino has been bringing large talent acts to the stage, which is convenient for the residents of Northwest Indiana.

“It’s nice to have an in-person in your backyard, who influences hot topics of the time, who is very current, and very special,” said McKellar.

Handler has won many award, including the Ally for Equality Award in March 2009 from the Human Rights Campaign. The award recognized “the outstanding efforts of those who dedicated time, energy, spirit and whole-hearted commitment to better the lives of LGBT people.”
