The Evolution of Comedy Tour is coming to your city and they are planning to turn your beliefs upside-down! Three of America’s top rationalist comedians, Ian Harris, Jason Resler and Maurice Northup, plus special guest Johnny Steele, are on a crusade… (okay, maybe that’s the wrong word) a quest to make you question your beliefs and make you laugh while doing it! If you are a fan of ‘reason’, you will need no other one to come see this show!

“Religion, politics, superstition, commonly held and comforting Beliefs, ghosts, astrology and other silly things people rarely think rationally about are all on the chopping block”, says tour founder Ian Harris. Harris, a life-long skeptic and nationally touring headlining comedian for over 19 years created the tour to help advance free thought and fill a much-needed hole in the entertainment field for free thinkers, skeptics and non-believers. “Our goal is to not only provide an entertainment outlet for the millions of non-believers in the world, but to also maybe make a few people question how they look at such topics. There are a lot of people on the fence or basically in the free thinker’s closet and afraid to speak out about their beliefs. Hopefully if the get in a comedy club or theatre with several hundred people like them all laughing and having a great time, it will help them feel more confident in their beliefs, or lack thereof.”

The percentage of non-believers and skeptics in the U.S. is growing rapidly. The Evolution of Comedy Tour is looking to tap into that previously un-tapped market. Make no mistake, though the tour is a new idea, these comedians are solid veterans with a proven track record making audiences laugh all over the world for two decades.
