(St. Louis, MO – November 1, 2011) Comedic royalty Sommore, Bruce Bruce, Earthquake, Tony Rock and Mark Curry turn Chaifetz (SHAY-fetz) Arena at Saint Louis University into a grand castle with “The Royal Comedy Tour" on Saturday, May 12 at 8 p.m.

As the undisputed “Queen of Comedy,” Sommore is widely considered one of America’s top comedic female entertainers.  She was the first woman to host BET’s “Comic View” and received the Richard Pryor Award for Comic of the Year in 1995.  She has hosted Russell Simmons’ “Def Comedy Jam” and “Showtime at the Apollo” and broke the Guinness Book of World Records when performing in front of 50,000 people in Atlanta, Georgia.  Sommore has been featured in numerous films including Friday After Next, Family Reunion, Soul Plane, Something New and Dirty Laundry.  Sommore was also a participant in the sixth season of VH1’s “Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp.”

Bruce Bruce’s steady style of captivating improv skills and larger-than-life comedic style has been showcased across the country. His wit, spontaneity and dazzling personality set him apart from other stand-up comedians. He was host for two seasons of BET’s “Comic View” and has made numerous appearances on television and film. Bruce headlined the 2008 “Just for Laughs Comedy Festival” in Montreal and has appeared in Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector, Who’s Your Caddy and Ice Cube’s XXX: State of the Union.

With his sharp one-liners and brutally honest observations, Earthquake often draws on his own experiences on stage while rarely preparing anything in advance. He can be outrageous at times, but shock is never the point of his routines. Inspired by Steve Harvey, Earthquake began to break into television in the early 2000’s appearing in his own stand up show on HBO’s One Night Stand and had roles in Everybody Hates Chris and several Comedy Central programs.

Tony Rock has also hosted several of his own shows, including the Tony Rock Project and a feature on Comedy Central Presents.  Mark Curry starred in Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper and was one of the hosts of It’s Showtime at the Apollo.
