The CAKE Comedy Tour is comprised of Carrie Gravenson, Abbi Crutchfield, Kaytlin Bailey and Erin Judge. They used to tour as Pink Collar Comedy. Kaytlin Bailey stopped by the studio to tell us all about their cool tour. If you’re deaf, you can read about it below.
CAKE Comedy Tour
It’s a multi-city comedy tour with 4 super funny comics. Well it will hopefully be a multi-city tour. The gang is using Kickstarter to sell the tickets for the show in advance. As the campaign hits its stretch goals, they add more cities to the tour. It’s the first ever comedy tour to be financed through Kickstarter. So go make history, and help ensure this awesome thing comes to your town.
