The Royal Comedy Tour

The Royal Comedy Tour

Whether you like to call her "fly," call her "frank," call her "fierce" or simply like to call her "funny," Sommore is without a doubt the foremost female comedian in the country today. Oprah proclaimed her a “force to be reckoned with in the new millennium” and if her name didn't tell it all, her diva style, demeanor and delivery will. Sommore is bringing big laughs and big star power to cities across the country with her 2011 installment of The Royal Comedy Tour. Alongside Sommore, the tour stars Mark Curry, Tony Rock and Bruce Bruce as featured comedians. The Royal Comedy Tour marks the first time, on a tour this extensive and of this magnitude, that a female comedian has headlined above her widely renown and noted male counterparts. Sommore sets the trend for other female comedians to follow, but she is also now setting the bar for her female counterparts to stand up and take notice on how it's done.

What to Expect

General warning: For mature audiences. If it's uncensored, unapologetic, hard hitting and hilarious, you will hear it on The Royal Comedy Tour. Lines will be crossed and nothing will be off limits as Sommore and members of her royal court light up the stage with their high-spirited humor and rousing routines.

Run-time: Approximately 120 minutes with no intermission
