About

THE TOUR

Promoting World Peace and Unity Thru Comedy!

With the start of Metro Comedy Entertainment I wanted to bring the multicultural experience to the audience; Because comedy is universal.

THIS CAMPAIGN

The idea is for supporters to Vote for 3 headliner comedians that will bring a mixed audience to the tour, and also you get to grab some advance VIP tickets at almost 90% off. 

The 3 most voted comedians are the ones that will tour our 2016 Unity Tour #WorldPeace

VOTING

POST 3 NAMES OF YOUR FAVORITE COMEDIANS ON THE COMMENT SECTION

BROWSE THE LIST (FROM A - Z) and suggest 3 comedians that you want to see on this tour.

  • Bob Saget  
  • Jim Gaffigan  
  • Eddie Griffin  
  • Ellen DeGeneres  
  • Steve Harvey  
  • Louis C.K.  
  • Chris Rock  
  • Larry the Cable Guy  
  • Ron White  
  • Sinbad  
  • Daniel Tosh  
  • Sarah Silverman  
  • and the list goes on... check the list:

There is something special about real comedy that music, politics and even sports can’t offer or even hope to attain. Comedy can heal, and it does so indiscriminately, no matter what our race, gender, nationality or political party. It’s universal.

THE TOUR KICK-OFF ON VALENTINE'S DAY 2016

  • Dates & Venue locations TBA
  • The Reason why 2016 – is because most of the comedians are on their own tour right now
  • The tour will span in more than 30 cities nationwide - (TWO HOUR SHOW FOR EVERY CITY WE VISIT)

WHY DO THE CAMPAIGN NOW?

  • Because it takes time to put everything together 
  • Booking venues
  • Marketing and Promotion plans 
  • Booking Comedians – Contracts 

WE NEED A TOUR BUS TO HELP WITH TRAVEL EXPENSES

WHY THIS COMEDY TOUR

To me, comedy is world peace. Sure, that sounds simplistic, but think about it for a moment. Comedy can unify the world. It’s not like a soccer match or basketball game where fans are put into a sports memorabilia centrifuge and separated into different sides. 

No, comedy is something different. Check out the audience with any real comedian on stage. What do you see? Men, women, Blacks, Asians, Hispanics, Caucasians, and, on Wednesday nights, maybe even little green guys from the Pleiades are there. They don’t laugh at one another, but rather they laugh together. Everyone unites.

If you’re disabled, challenged, or physically fit, comedy is for you. Heck, it’s for everybody.

As a comedian, I consider it an honor to take the stage and know that in some small way, I help people forget about their troubles. Each person is important to me. I want to reach them, to make them laugh. 

Have you ever noticed that once you start laughing you tend to forget about the thing that made you mad or upset? They say laughter is the best medicine.
