Chris Rock announces first standup comedy tour in nine years

on December 05, 2016, 10:25pm
 

Well, next year just got funnier: Chris Rock will tour the globe.

“Tonight, I am announcing that I, Chris Rock, am going on tour,” Rock announced on Facebook Live tonight. “The Total Blackout tour is coming to your town in 2017… First time in nine years, haven’t done it in awhile. Been a little busy, You know, writing Pootie Tang 3 and everything. But hey, it’s time.”

The title of the tour takes its name from a tweet that Rock posted prior to hosting this year’s Academy Awards, which he promised would be a #blackout. Considering he was arguably the best host the Oscars had seen in, oh, two decades, these round of dates should be quite a hot ticket for 2017.

Consult the full itinerary below, which curiously consists mostly of Trump states, and watch the announcement above. Additional dates will be announced shortly.

Tickets go on sale via Ticketmaster on December 7th. If you can’t make it, odds are it’s going to be turned into something for Netflix, especially considering he was just paid $40 million by the streaming service for two specials.
