Wendy Williams’ FOR THE RECORD…Umm Hmmm! Comedy Tour is being produced and presented across the country by Wendy Williams, Courtney Parker, Marcus King and Bay Area Productions. The tour features some of the country’s most sought after, up and coming comics and is hosted by Williams. The show hits Atlanta Symphony Hall on Saturday, September 7, 2019, at 7pm. Each market features a different comedic lineup. Comedians Royale Watkins, Carmen Barton, Kristen Sivills, Mark Viera and Dominique will hit the stage for the Atlanta performance.
On the heels of what could be considered a year of unearthing drama- both personally and professionally, the Queen of Daytime Television is using her voice, and platform from her Emmy-Award Winning talk show to spill the tea about every juicy and hot topic headline of the year thus far, including her very own hot headline news. No topic is off-limits, not even her own life. FOR THE RECORD…Umm Hmmm! Comedy Tour will do just that. Williams picks her own topics and each comedian punctuates the hottest topics and biggest headlines today with their own unique comedy twist.
“Since I believe laughter is the best therapy, this comedy tour is the place for me to address my own hot topics and tell my story, my way,” said Williams. “I think it’s important to control your own narrative, and this show allows me the opportunity to heal and have some fun through laughter while shaping the next chapter of my life.”
During its trek across the country, Wendy Williams & Friends Presents FOR THE RECORD…Umm Hmmm! Comedy Tour will hit seven markets during its initial run. The tour kicked off in Oakland, CA at the Paramount Theatre on Saturday, July 28th. It concludes with the show in Atlanta, GA. The tour will have stops in Detroit, Tampa, Newark, Philadelphia, and Cleveland.
