Named after her recent best-selling book “Uganda Be Kidding Me,” Handler’s set recounted details from her travels through Africa, Europe and the Bahamas. During her set, the multi-talented entertainer had the audience in stitches from her clever, crude and hilarious take on her family and her awkward upbringing.
