Comedienne will deliver stand-up act in the Arena on December 31st

Talk show host, author and stand-up comedian Chelsea Handler has announced plans to return to Mohegan Sun Arena for a very special New Year’s Eve performance on Friday, December 31st at 8:00pm with special guest Sarah Colonna.

Tickets are $55.00 and go on sale Friday, September 24th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log onto ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge by Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, September 25th, subject to availability.

As one of the nation’s most popular female stand-ups, Chelsea has performed to sold-out audiences at venues and festivals across the country. Her comedy mixes fearless honesty, ironic riffs and self-deprecations with an abundance of always-fresh material.

Although she regularly appears on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, has co-hosted The View, was profiled on Nightline, and has been featured on Today, LIVE with Regis and Kelly and Late Night with David Letterman, Chelsea is best known for her own E! Entertainment show, Chelsea Lately, which airs weeknights at 11:00pm. Consistently the highest-rated program on E!, Chelsea Lately has been picked up through 2012, providing Chelsea with the perfect showcase for what she does best: comment on pop culture and entertainment news while interacting with the public.  The daily program offers a tongue-in-cheek look at entertainment news, celebrity truths and rumors that just won’t die, and other hot topics of the day.  Bringing refreshing new energy to the late night arena, Chelsea Lately is an authentic and hilarious commentary on the celebrity culture around us.

Chelsea is also a three-time published author and her latest book Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang hit stores this past March.  In the new opus, Chelsea mines her family, her sex life, her career, and her distinctively outrageous worldview to bring readers an outrageous no-holds-barred account of life on the ridiculous side.

Mohegan Sun Arena was ranked the 4th busiest venue in 2009 by Billboard Magazine and was the 2008 recipient of a Country Music Award for “Casino of The Year.” For more information on concerts and other great events at Mohegan Sun, visit mohegansun.com.  For information on this week’s schedule, call the Entertainment and Special Events hotline at 1.888.226.7711, ext. 27163.
