The Standing Ovation Tour
2014 will kick off with the hottest new stand-up comedy tour in the country -- the STANDING OVATION TOUR. Starring Sommore, the top female comedian in the business today, the tour will also feature talent from such standout comedians as Tony Rock, Earthquake, Arnez J & Huggy Lowdown.
In a profession previously dominated mostly by men, Sommore’s success in the field can be justly attributed to her unique talent. With a winning combination of class and sass, Sommore offers audiences a hilarious, yet piercing look at today's issues from a woman’s perspective. She is frank and fearless in her routines, tackling topics that range from the mundane to the controversial with wit, intelligence and style. Fresh off the success of her last tour and special Chandelier Status, Sommore has been tapped as the 2014 host of BET’s 'ComicView'.
Washington D.C.’s own, comedian Earthquake has carved quite a unique audience for himself. He’s captured the attention of popular media icons Howard Stern and Bill Maher, he’s maintained his moniker as the ‘comedian’s favorite comedian’, and he’s reigned an all time comic favorite shaking up audiences with his high brow-common sense rhetoric as one of the most sought after comedians on the national entertainment circuit...hence appropriately named, Earthquake.
Rapidly becoming one of the most talked about comedians, Arnez J routinely transcends ethnic barriers because, frankly, it is difficult to avoid laughing at his silly, quirky, and infectious act. With the physicality of Jim Carrey, his brand of comedy has branded him ‘The Black Jerry Lewis’. Anything can happen from handstands, cartwheels, and even absurd dance routines.
Tony Rock is the host of the newly revamped legendary talent competition 'Apollo Live', airing its second season, this 2014, a cameo in the number one box office film Think Like a Man, TV appearances on BET’s 'Let’s Stay Together' and Vh-1’s 'Single Ladies' and starring in a straight to DVD film C’mon Man. Rock has also co-hosted the BET Awards red-carpet for the second year in a row and has a vast of other projects in the pipeline. This comedian continues to exceed all expectations, causing laughter everywhere he goes.
Comedian Huggy Lowdown is the number one segment on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, which is syndicated in 115 markets. Hear him every morning with Tom sharing his special brand of comedy, gossip and entertainment news!
