While Bones has previously taken the Opry stage with his band Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots, this will mark his first time bringing a stand-up comedy routine to the venue. Comedy continues to be an important part of the entertainment mix at the Opry, the show that through the years welcomed as members such legendary comedians as Country Music Hall of Famers Minnie Pearl, Rod Brasfield, and the Duke of Paducah as well as Jerry Clower and Archie Campbell, among others.
“I love the Opry. I love to tell jokes. I hope people love me when I’m at the Opry telling jokes,” said Bones. “If you are reading this and you are coming, please laugh.”
Leg two of Bone’s FUNNY & ALONE STAND UP COMEDY TOUR is currently underway, following more than 15 sold-out shows earlier this year. The shows became an instant hit amongst audiences, with some venues selling out minutes after going on sale. Honored by ASCAP with the “Partners In Music” Award for consistently breaking and supporting new artists, Bones invited special guests Carly Pearce and Nikita Karmen along for the second leg of the tour.
