      Fake Famous Comedy Tour (DMV)

      The Fake Famous Comedy Tour featuring comedian Barry S. Naylor II comes to the DMV on Saturday, July 27, 2019.  Fake Famous Comedy was the first comedy show of melanated magnitude to grace Florida’s historic Hippodrome State Theatre located in Downtown Gainesville, FL selling out the first show in less than a week forcing the team to produce a second show which sold out in 24hrs! #BLACKHISTORY. The turn out during #UFBAR2018 (Black Alumni Reunion for University of Florida), inspired a 7-stop tour ending with Columbia, SC near Barry's hometown in December. (For a complete schedule of the tour follow @fakefamouscomedy on Instagram) On tour stop number one, the comedians rocked the house in Jacksonville Florida (DUUUUUUVALLLL) at the Rhythm Factory a black-owned nonprofit venue space that is committed to supporting the arts being taught in school. Proceeds from the Jacksonville show supported a local high school marching band getting new instruments, presented by Gainesville Black Wall Street and the Jacksonville Urban League Young Professionals. The marathon continues as we head to the Busboys and Poets in Hyattsville, a minority-owned non-profit organization, in The Zinn Room named after scholar and activist Howard Zinn. Their founder Andy Shallal painted the mural Rivers in the Zinn Room inspired by Langston Hughes’ poem “The Negro Speaks of Rivers.". Immerse yourself in culture and prepare to get your laugh on and come dressed to impress because the cameras will be rolling throughout the comedy show! Fake Famous Comedy DC will be nothing short of melanated excellence. The Washington Bar Association - Young Lawyers Division will also be on the scene to providing information to the community about voting and proceeds from the show help them fight homelessness in the DMV area! After the show, meet the comedians and purchase signed products in the "FLASH MARKET" featuring pop up shop vendors and sponsors.  Thank you to our sponsors, vendors, the organizations who secured block seating, those who provided feedback/advice, and the supporters who hopped on the waiting list before the Eventbrite was even ready.
