If laughter is the best medicine, then the doctor is in the house on Friday, Oct. 14, when the Royal Comedy Tour comes to the Crown. The tour looks to be a must see show this fall, if it is anything like last year’s tour which, sold out shows across the country during its 20 city tour.
Sommore, a comedian, is this year’s headliner. She is known for her quick-witted sarcasm and has an impressive track record to back her up. With air-time on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Live From LA, Showtime at the Apollo, The Hughley’s, The Parkers and Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, it is no wonder fans are coming out in droves to hear her perform.
Bruce Bruce, another peformer on the tour, was rewarded for his comic talent with the highest ratings ever as host of BET’s 10th Anniversary Comic View for two seasons, and promises to deliver a side-splitting experience for the audience.
Mark Curry, the star of television’s Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper, has countless hours of night-club entertaining under his belt and really shines on stage. With shows like Coming to the Stage and ESPN’s Cold Pizza on his resume, Curry has earned a place in the hearts of those who love to laugh.
Damon Williams has appeared on BET’s Comic View several times as well as performing at Showtime at the Apollo and Jamie Foxx Presents Laffapalooza. Williams can be heard on the Tom Joyner Show in “Seriously Ignant News.” He’s a crowd favorite in the comedy clubs and sure-ﬁre favorite for the Royal Comedy Tour.
Tony Rock is the brother of Chris Rock, but he has made his own mark in the world of comedy and easily keeps audiences in stitches. His list of performance venues includes the Comic Strip, Caroline’s, The Comedy Store and The Improv. He’s had roles in All of Us, Hitch, Three Can Play that Game and Life Support. He’s a busy guy and a big part of the comic synergy that the Royal Comedy Tour is so well known for.“
