The Festival of Laughs, a touring comedy show featuring Sommore, George Wallace, Tommy Davidson, Earthquake, Tony Rock and Guy Torry, is back for 2019. The show comes to Connor Palace on March 2.

Sommore will host the evening, and Earthquake [pictured] will close the night. In her more than 20-year career, Sommore has become one of the most successful comedians in the U.S.

"Even in this fast-paced, ever-changing world that we live in, laughter will never go out of style and I am so glad that it is a big part of my life,” says Sommore in a press release announcing the tour.

Earthquake, known by his fans as "Quake," has made numerous television appearances on HBO, Comedy Central, BET and Showtime. He currently hosts his own daily show, Quake's House, on Kevin Hart's Laugh Out Loud Radio channel on SiriusXM.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. tomorrow.
