They’re back—and they’re funnier than ever! The Festival of Laughs featuring Sommore, George Wallace, Bruce Bruce, Earthquake, Tony Rock and Don DC Curry will be returning once again to State Farm Arena in Atlanta on Feb. 8, 2019. The veteran entertainers will bring down the house with their sharp wit, unbridled humor and hysterical storytelling for a comedy show fans won’t want to miss!
Sommore will be hosting the evening, while Earthquake will be closing the show. In her more than 20-year career, award-winning comedienne of “Chandelier Status,” Sommore, has become a trailblazer for women in the comedy business as one of the most successful comedians in the U.S. and abroad. Sommore has been featured in a number of hit films including “Soul Plane,” “Something New” and “Friday After Next.” She recently filmed an all-new self-produced comedy special, “A Queen With No Spades” that will air later this fall on Showtime. She also has another self-produced project, titled, “All the Queens Men” that is expected to debut on network television in the Summer of 2019.
“Even in this fast paced ever changing world that we live in, laughter will never go out of style and I am so glad that it is a big part of my life,” says Sommore.
Earthquake, known by his fans as “Quake,” is beloved in the stand-up comedy arena. His numerous television appearances on HBO, Comedy Central, BET, Showtime, and the late-night talk show circuit have won him a loyal fan base. Chosen by Whoopi Goldberg for a stand-up comedy segment of “The View,” Earthquake has secured a place in the heart of comedy lovers across race, culture, or social status. The “Comedian’s Favorite Comedian” currently hosts his own daily show “Quake’s House” on Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud Radio channel on SiriusXM.
Tickets will go on sale Friday, November 9 at 10:00 a.m. local time.
