Since it began in January, the Sick of Stupid Comedy Tour has played over 20 sold out shows across the Southern U.S.
Comedians Stewart Huff, Cliff Cash and Tom Simmons, who's known for his hit comedy news series So Then There’s This, have teamed up to try to show that “not all Southerners are stupid.”
"We believe that people are looking for an intelligent voice with a southern accent," reads the show's description on their Facebook page. “'The South' is made up of Miami, Austin, Atlanta, The Research Triangle, New Orleans, Nashville, the Appalachian mountains, The Gulf of Mexico, Charleston, Nashville, Asheville and so many more wonderful, cultured, beautiful cities. Those cities are full of intelligent, progressive, talented, cultured people who don’t want to be grouped in with Duck Dynasty, Honey Boo Boo or Ted Cruz. Much like people in New Jersey don’t want to be lumped in with the Jersey Shore cast."
The comedians cite the late, great Southern comic Bill Hicks as an inspiration.
An RNC edition of the tour is heading our way. It'll come to the Bop Stop at 7 p.m. on Wednesday. Tickets are $15.
