2016 kicks off with new comedy tours from David Cross, Bon Qui Qui, and “Trump Vs. Bernie”

We’re barely into 2016, and already three major nationwide comedy tours have asked you to pencil them into your plans this year.

David Cross: “Making America Great Again!”

Cross is heading out on the road for his first stand-up tour in six years, starting Jan. 26, 2016, in San Diego, and continuing through at least April, covering more than half of the United States plus stops in at least two major comedy festivals (JFL NorthWest in Vancouver in February, and Moontower in Austin in April). Cross joked with The Comic’s Comic this week that he’d love to be able to close out his shows with a “cover” of another comedian’s act as his encore.
