The CAKE Comedy Tour (Carrie Gravenson, Abbi Crutchfield, Kaytlin Bailey and Erin Judge) has been touring the country as the Pink Collar Comedy Tour since 2012. The Boston Globe described the tour as “smart comedy by female comics.” They want to come to Nashville May 2nd and are using Kickstarter to pre-sell tickets. Here’s their pitch video:
The Nashville tour stop kickstarter page says, “The CAKE Comedy Tour will be performing in Nashville, TN May 2nd IF we sell enough tickets! So help bring CAKE to Nashville!” and “Why am I donating money to successful comics? You’re not! You’re buying a ticket. So do that.”
Tickets go for as little as $10, but other price points are available that come with additional perks like a tour t-shirt.
The Pink Collar Comedy Tour, featuring New York-based comedians Erin Judge, Abbi Crutchfield, Carrie Gravenson, and Kaytlin Bailey, will bring cutting-edge, hilarious stand-up comedy to Nashville in March 2014. “Pink collar” is a term designating a type of worker just like blue collar or white collar, only it refers to work said to be stereotypical women’s work and is typically in the service industry although these comedians are anything but typical!
The Pink Collar Comedy Tour premiered in South Carolina in 2012 and has since played to packed houses in more than 25 cities, including Austin, New Orleans, Philadelphia, San Francsico, Raleigh, and more. The Boston Globe said it best: The Pink Collar Comedy Tour is “smart comedy by female comics.”
