Chonda Pierce, the unrivaled “The Queen of Clean Comedy” packs up her cheerful, unpretentious Southern charm, musical talent and laser-sharp wit for a talk-show styled tour launching April 4 in Lenoir City, Tenn. The tour will visit 35+ cities through June, including a stop at the historic Ryman Auditorium on June 22.
The unscripted traveling talk show promises laughs without-a-safety-net. Known for incorporating music into her comedy, Chonda will be joined on select dates by special musical guest Geoff Moore. Chonda has received five Emmy nominations, appeared in several films including ‘Your Love Never Fails’ and ’12 Wishes of Christmas,’ is the author of six best-selling books and was recently honored with the “Comedian of the Year” Visionary Award. She has had seven DVDs certify RIAA Gold (sales exceeding 50,000) and four certified Platinum (for sales of more than 100,000 units).
The release of her latest DVD ‘Did I Say That Out Loud’ (2010) ushered in a wide range of high profile media stops including a guest appearance on ABC’s The View. Her career momentum extends through to a busy touring schedule with several of the following Spring dates already sold out.
