The Royal Comedy Tour will celebrate the comedians of old who set the bar for the industry today and showcase those comedians who are presently the voice of the industry right now. The tour seeks to successfully continue the unforgettable tradition set forth by Def Comedy Jam and Comic View. If it’s raw, without regrets, full of real in your face emotion, you will get it from The Royal Comedy Tour. No other tour ever assembled mixes mayhem with merriment in such a way that thousands flock to see it year after year. Since its start in 2009, The Royal Comedy Tour has become the longest-running most successful urban comedy tour ever with a quarter of a million people having witnessed its comedians live on stage. During its previous installments, the Royal Comedy Tour saw unparallel success from night to night with sold out shows across the country and has featured everyone from D.L. Hughley, Sommore, Bruce Bruce and Don “D.C.” Curry to Damon Williams, TuRae, Arnez J, Tony Rock, Mark Curry and Earthquake.
Red Foxx, Flip Wilson, Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy aren’t just Award-winning actors and icons of the comedy industry, but they all began their careers doing stand-up. Before their best-selling comedy special or comedy album was completed, before they landed their first appearance in a hit feature film and before they got a role in a long running TV series, they were amazing audiences all around the country doing stand-up one comedy club and one city at a time. Whether in matters of race, religion or relationships, stand-up explored it all. Stand-up gave issues and what mattered most to people a platform and propelled comedians like Foxx, Wilson, Pryor and Murphy into the mainstream.
Continuing the legacy and the rich tradition established by these legendary comics is the Royal Comedy Tour. As the 3rd Annual Royal Comedy Tour preps to head out on its 25-city tour, this year’s tour titled, “All Hail Stand-Up” is taking fans back to a time when “Stand Up was King.” From sold out shows to side-splitting sets to some of the funniest comedians coming together on one stage one night at a time, The Royal Comedy Tour, year after year is the most anticipated, can’t miss comedy tour.

“The Royal Comedy Tour gives us an opportunity to discuss issues of today from our perspective,” said Sommore. “There is nothing like hearing what “we” as comedians think is funny. When all is said and done, people will always appreciate funny. When all else fails for them in life, they will always appreciate what’s funny. It’s the one constant they can always count on. And on this tour, we will consistently be coming with “the funny.”
Together, Sommore, Earthquake, Bruce Bruce, Tony Rock & Mark Curry have been entertaining audiences with their brand of comedy for almost a hundred years, collectively millions of people have seen them “LIVE” and jointly they represent the best group of funny makers on the comedy circuit today.
“Every night on this tour will be ‘Pure Destruction!’” said Earthquake, who is the tour’s headliner this year. “This tour will be nothing like people have ever seen before. For fans that haven’t seen me live yet to the fans that come out every time I’m in town, I’m not leaving the stage until I know they can’t take anymore.”
For fans coming to see this year’s Royal Comedy Tour, the social commentating will crack you up, the comic’s everyday rhetoric will cause a ruckus and the side-splitting situations will stir you up.
