Tickets on Sale NOW; 2 shows June 10 (7 p.m. & 9:30 p.m. CT), Taped for New Comedy Special

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Comedian Chelsea Handler is bringing her Vaccinated and Horny Tour to the Ryman Auditorium on Friday, June 10, 2022, for two shows, 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. CT, as part of the Ryman Auditorium’s 130th anniversary year.

Both shows will be taped for inclusion in her next comedy special. In addition to her stand-up persona, Handler is a television host, best-selling author and advocate whose humor and candor have established her as one of the most celebrated voices in entertainment and pop culture. 

After a strong, seven-year run as the host of E!’s top-rated Chelsea Lately — during which she was the only female late-night talk show host on air — Handler launched her documentary series Chelsea Does, followed by her talk show Chelsea, both on Netflix in 2016. 

Handler has penned six best-selling books, five of which have reached #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list, including 2019’s Life Will Be the Death of Me. Most recently, she released her first stand-up special in over six years, the critically acclaimed “Chelsea Handler: Evolution” on HBO Max in 2020, and launched her iHeart Radio advice podcast, Dear Chelsea, in 2021. 

Last year, Chelsea also embarked on the Vaccinated and Horny Tour, bringing her sensational stand-up set to 40+ cities across the nation.

Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, aka the Mother Church of Country Music, is marking its 130th anniversary with more concerts and residencies than ever before, plus new daytime tour experiences and community events.
