Will Ferrell And Crew Hit The Road To Promote Semi-Pro

— Posted by Rodney

Semi-Pro-PosterIt looks like our brothers at Lamda Lamda Lamda are in for quite a treat. Will Ferrell is hitting the road with some comedic amigos and will be storming college stages to promote Semi-Pro. We get word of this majestic tour thanks to the professionals at Variety:

Will Ferrell and a trio of up-and-coming comics are hitting the road in support of New Line’s “Semi-Pro,” launching a multicity college standup tour linked to his FunnyorDie website.

Thesp will headline seven shows over three weeks in February, teaming with leading standups Zach Galifianakis, Demetri Martin and Nick Swardson. Event, dubbed “Will Ferrell’s Funny or Die Comedy Tour Presented by Semi-Pro,” will kick off Feb. 4 in Kansas City and serve as a promotional run-up to the Feb. 29 release of the pic.

In addition to tubthumping “Semi-Pro,” event will also help hype FunnyorDie, which will have a video crew tagging along throughout the tour.

This is a great way to promote the film. Having Will Ferrell in front of a college crowd is going to be flat out awesome. Those of us that are unable to see the magic in person may view the hi-jinx through the popular laughter portal known as FunnyorDie. I personally consider the Will Ferrell years to be the funniest SNL streak ever, and always look forward to everything the man does. I would watch him tenderly bathe the terminally ill with immense delight.

If any of our international friends are able to see this live, please keep us posted. We welcome any bootlegs, videos and/or written reports about the event. Written reports should be in a minimum of 1200 words with a font size of 12 in times new roman. Please double space your work and site your sources.

I keep hunting for new Semi-Pro trailers and will throw them up as soon as they become available.
Until then – keep you eye on funnyordie

  1. I’m going to NYC on Sunday to see the final show. Apparently Will Arnett and Woody Harrelson are going to make appearances to. I’m sure it will be spectacularly hilarious. I’ll let you know…

  2. I just looked at the Variety article, and it says that he’s coming to a college in North Carolina, where I live. All of the big colleges here are literally within an hour or less drive of each other, so when I find out where it is, I’ll see if I can go.
