While comedy clubs have reopened in many parts of the country, sitting in a crowded club during a pandemic still doesn’t have great appeal to anyone worried about catching COVID. As if to cater to that demographic, Chicago comedian, writer and actor Hannibal Buress has just announced he’ll embark upon a socially distanced music and comedy tour in September.
Specifically created for drive-in theaters, the tour kicks off on Tuesday, Sept. 22, at the Aut-O-rama Twin Drive-In in Cleveland, then heads to the:
- Starlite Drive-In in Butler, Pennsylvania on Sept. 23
- South Drive-In in Columbus, Ohio on Sept. 24
- Tibb's Drive-In in Indianapolis, Indiana on Sept. 25
- And wraps up with two shows at the Lake Shore Drive-In in Chicago on Sept. 27
The five-date run supports Buress’ new comedy special Miami Nights.
Buress has also released the first episode of Splitting 10s, his new podcast series that finds him talking about sports gambling, blackjack, and gambling psychology and techniques.
The September drive-in tour is produced by Hotbox & Outback Presents, the same team behind recent Marc Rebillet and Bert Kreischer's drive-in tours.
