An absurd and hilarious collection of travel essays, Uganda Be Kidding Me finds Handler detailing her exploits while on safari in Africa, attempting to kayak in the Bahamas and escaping from a German hospital on crutches. She also shares her unique thoughts on etiquette, hot spots and memorable destinations. Handler's previous books, which include My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang and Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea, have been met with critical acclaim for their comedic voice. Be prepared for a night of laughs when the words in her latest book leap from the pages and are delivered straight from Handler's feisty mouth. Learn More

It was fun. Didn't know what to expect. Basically two of the editors stood on stage read headlines, told some stories, and led a Q. & A. session. The audience questions were a bit awkward, and some were a train wreck - which was quite awesome in an uncomfortable kind of way. You know, like when your drunk uncle starts telling innapropriate jokes at the dinner table while the kids and grandma pretend not to listen. Actually, I take that back. It wasn't quite that entertaining... but our friends liked it. Our Goldclass seats were fantastic.

Deadpan satire and journalistic skill collide in the phenomenon that is The Onion. Founded in 1988 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the “fake news” newspaper is the notable precursor to such biting, faux-news programs as _ The Daily Show_ and _The Colbert Report. _
Last year, The Onion News Network, an online send-up of 24-hour cable TV news, was named a Peabody Award winner and praised as “hilarious, trenchant and not infrequently hard to distinguish from the real thing.” Join current Onion editor Joe Randazzo and fellow staffers for a multimedia discussion on the state of media, politics and pop culture as they offer up insight into how the paper’s culture-skewering stories and hilarious headlines are created.
