Wham City launches comedy tour featuring Ed Schrader, Dina Kelberman and Dan Deacon

Wham City will launch a 10-city comedy tour in Baltimore November 11.

Several of the hyphenated members of the arts collective -- they are comics-video artists-musicians-dancers -- will participate in the tour, which kicks off at the Bells Foundry and will go through Pittsburgh and Chicago before ending in New York November 20.

The participants are: Ed Schrader, Ben O'Brien, Alan Resnick, Robby Rackleff, April Camlin, Pete O'Connell, Mason Ross, Adam Endres, Connor Kizer, Dina Kelberman, as well as Dan Deacon.

The tour will also feature locals The Creepers and the jokey music of Ram Ones.  

"Wham City: a night of comedy" comes after Deacon and video artist Jimmy Joe Roche started a retrospective film series at the Charles last week. With the film series, the comedy tour, and Whartscape, what could be next? the Wham City salad dressing? 

Pitchfork had news of the tour first, which was also posted on Wham City's website
