The longest running and most successful urban comedy tour will again hit stages across America in coming months.

Kicking off on Feb. 2 in Louisiana to coincide with Super Bowl weekend, the Royal Comedy Tour will see some of the premier comedians in the country come together on one stage for a 25-city stand-up tour.

Now in its fourth year, the new tour will feature the Queen B of Comedy, Sommore, alongside veteran comedians Mark Curry, Bruce Bruce and Earthquake, as well as the comedic stylings of Tony Rock. Special guests including Arnez J., Gary Owen and J. Anthony Brown will appear in select cities.

Night after night, these comedians will explore issues such as politics, race, religion, and relationships and turn them inside out and upside down.

The undisputed Queen of Comedy and star of the upcoming comedy special “Chandelier Status,” Sommore has been with the tour since the first show. Curry can currently be seen starring opposite Scott Baio in the Nick at Nite sitcom “See Dad Run.” Tony Rock is also keeping busy, hosting the newly revamped talent competition “Apollo Live” and appearing as a series regular on season two of BET’s “Reed Between the Lines.” Comedic legends Earthquake and Bruce Bruce, both of whom have standup specials, tv roles and movie appearances under their belt, round out the featured Royal Comedy Tour crew.

The tour kicks off Feb. 2 at the Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, La. Tickets are on sale now. For more information and all tour dates including ticket information, log onto www.royalcomedytour.com.
