Handler's memoir will go on sale April 9. The book explores the star's "Year of Self-Sufficiency" following the election of President Donald Trump, including her entering therapy to confront love and loss in her childhood.

The former Chelsea Lately host will promote the book with the 16-city Life Will Be the Death of Me: Chelsea Handler's Sit-Down Comedy Tour. The tour kicks off April 11 in Boston, Mass., and ends June 1 in San Francisco, Calif.
