COMEDY NEWS: @ROBERTKELLY EMBARKS ON NATIONAL TOUR OF COMEDY CLUBS AND ROCK VENUES

Actor, Comedian Robert Kelly is taking his abrasively funny, yet surprisingly vulnerable stand-up comedy to stages across the nation this fall for his True Story Tour. From September through December, the renowned comedian will headline a mix of comedy clubs and rock venues with the support of up-and-coming Baltimore comedian Stavros Halkias. Tickets are available at www.robertkellylive.com
 
Kelly stated, "I named this tour True Story for two reasons, one is because all my new material comes from crazy stories from my own life, but two, I really I just needed a name for the tour… true story."
 
For the tour, Kelly teamed up with The Laugh Button to help bring the tour experience to the masses. Robert will document his time on the road, filming exclusive video from towns he visits, people he talks to, and roadside attractions he finds. "I didn't want just a tour of comedy clubs where I'm sitting in one town for 3-4 days. I wanted to move from place to place and room to room every night. I wanted big venues, small venues and everything in-between." Kelly added, "I teamed up with the Laugh Button because no one else can combine social media, touring, and comedy into one kick ass package better than them."
 
"It's a real honor to present Robert Kelly's tour. He's been such an advocate of The Laugh Button and the work we've done over the years, lending his talent and expertise whenever we asked," states Laugh Button Editor-In-Chief, Matt Kleinschmidt adding, "So, when we were presented with the opportunity to be involved in this tour, we jumped at the opportunity." Fans will be able to keep up with all of the activity of the tour on The Laugh Button's website and by the hashtag #TrueStory.
