Steve Harvey Teams With Kirk Franklin For Gospel & Comedy Tour

Comments (11)


For most of 2010, Steve Harvey has focused his efforts on promoting his 'Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man' New York Times best-seller, maintaining his position as one of the country's top morning radio hosts and giving back through his foundation. But, now the comedian will get back to his stand-up roots as he embarks on a comedy tour with a twist.

Next spring, Harvey will join Grammy Award-winning singer Kirk Franklin for their first-ever 'Steve Harvey and Kirk Franklin Comedy Gospel Tour,' where Franklin will offer up his inspiration songs to people going through tough times, and Harvey will give fans something to laugh about."I think that this type of tour for me is long overdue," the original King of Comedy said.

"It is going to be an amazing amount of fun and ya'll really do need to see Kirk and me together because as I said before, God really is not through with me yet! It's going to be funny just watching me trying to get through this show cleanly. I'm probably going to remind you of somebody you know."

Franklin is also eager to head out on the road with Harvey for this unique concert experience.

"It's an honor to tour with my friend and brother in bringing people hope and laughter in what for many are difficult times.
Steve brings the jokes and I bring that Jesus," he exclaimed.

The Gospel Comedy tour kicks off at Atlanta's Phillips Arena on March 19 and will also stop in cities like Tampa, Jacksonville and Memphis. Tickets are now on sale through Ticketmaster. Tour dates are listed below.

Harvey remains very busy through the rest of the year. His highly anticipated follow-up to 'Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,' titled 'Straight Talk No Chaser' will be released Dec. 7 via Amistad/Harper Collins. In addition to hosting the long-running game show 'Family Feud,' he also just premiered his new Centric television show, 'The Steve Harvey Project.'

'Steve Harvey & Kirk Franklin Music and Comedy Tour' Dates

April 2 Memphis, TN Desoto Civic Center
April 9 Nashville, TN Bridgestone Arena
April 30 Charleston, SC North Charleston Coliseum
