During the event at Edinburgh's Usher Hall on April 24, Rebel will share stories from her Aussie upbringing as the daughter of parents who sold pet products at dog shows, to making millions as LA’s favourite funny girl, always questioning "Am I good enough?”, "Will I ever find love?" and "Will I ever change and become healthy?".

In the book she speaks for the first time about the most personal and important moments in her life from fertility issues, weight gain and loss to sexuality, overcoming shyness and dealing with rejection. And there's at least one story about Brad Pitt. 

The promotional material for the show states: "From the scene-stealing star of Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids, get ready for an emotional rollercoaster with a refreshingly candid, funny, and inspiring conversation about her unconventional journey to Hollywood success, and self-love.

"For decades, Rebel Wilson single-mindedly focused on her career, forgoing relationships in favour of making a name for herself. An Evening with Rebel Wilson will share the emotional and physical lessons she has learned, as well as her most embarrassing experiences.

Rebel Rising is Rebel’s 'hilarious and unconventional journey to Hollywood and self-love' and will be released on 4th April 2024.
