Robert Kelly, Ron Bennington, Rich Vos and Jim Florentine Announce the “Kreeps With Kids Comedy Tour,” opening October 18 in Reading, Pennsylvania. The tour is being produced by Creative Artists Agency [CAA]. For a full list of tour dates and links to tickets visit KreepsWithKidsTour.com.
Last March, four of the world’s funniest comedians, who are also friends, took the stage together in Glenside Pa. for a killer night of comedy. The show was politically incorrect, edgy, spontaneous and full of heart. It was a huge success. People were leaving the theater saying it was the best comedy show they had been to in years. So, when the four headliners were approached to do a 14-city theater tour, it was a no brainer. With over a hundred years combined comedy experience, not since the Kings of Comedy has a group of headliners this talented shared the stage.
All four comedians are dads who discovered they have an odd shared philosophy when it comes to parenting.
“The toughest thing about being a single dad is helping my son with his homework. The only requirement for the girls I date is they have to know common core math. I can look past the herpes.” – Jim Florentine
“Being a parent is easy; being a good parent is hard. All the parents I know– including me– are f*%^ing nuts. Our parenting isn’t what you see on a typical TV show or in a textbook. The Kreeps with Kids represent parents who don’t read the books, who might have a metal band play their seven yearsold’s birthday party, let their kids stay up as late as they want, riff with their kids and let them outside at night with no shoes on without worrying about stepping in rabbit shit.” — Robert Kelly
“My 11-year-old came home from school with lice. And you feel bad as a parent for making her sleep on the porch for a week.” – Rich Vos
“I’ve never felt more like a parent than being on tours with these guys. I’m constantly having to separate them.” – Ron Bennington
The show WON’T BE EXCLUSIVELY about being parents. Vos, Florentine, Bennington and Kelly will cover everything and anything. But one thing they guarantee, this will be the funniest show you have seen in a long time.
The ticket price is also one of the best values out there for a headlining comedy show. “We didn’t want to gouge the fans,” Kelly said. “There are other headlining shows that are charging anywhere from $150 to $700 a ticket for a show for one headliner. We’re charging an average of $30 a ticket, There’s not a better deal anywhere in comedy, show wise or price wise. Your getting four of the funniest comedians walking the planet for the price of a movie ticket.
They will preview the show at the Montreal’s famed Club Soda during the final week of the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. The tour will then kick off officially in Reading Pennsylvania on October 18th at the Santander Performing Arts Center, visiting theaters in Pittsburgh, Boston, Red Bank, Chicago, and nine other North East cities, ending in Rahway, NJ on November 30th.
Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday June 21st. Visit kreepswithkidstour.com for all dates and ticket links.
