TORONTO – Chelsea Handler gets bot with Canadians.
Prior to Ottawa's legalization of cannabis on October 17, the comedian from Los Angeles headed north for a series of conversations with open fireplaces about marijuana and political activism.
Handler will perform seven performances in collaboration with Civilized, a New Brunswick-based digital media outlet. The "live town hall events" are moderated by the publisher, Derek Riedle.
Handler, who earlier late evening talk show "Chelsea Lately" and her own eponymous Netflix series presented, is a strong supporter of cannabis use.
She appeared as a speaker at a cannabis conference in Saint John, NB, earlier this year, and she launched an American tour after the cancellation of her Netflix series.
Its Canadian dates, invoiced as A Civilized Conversation with Chelsea Handler, start in Calgary on September 20 before they slip through Vancouver on September 21 and Winnipeg on September 22.
The handler will then appear in Montreal (October 4), Ottawa (October 5), Toronto (October 6) and Halifax (October 7).
