Mo’Nique Kicks Off Her Spread the Love Comedy Tour
Not only is Mo’Nique riding high on winning the Washington, DC, Boston, Los Angeles and New York Film Critics’ Awards, a SAG Award and a Golden Globe Award, having a top-rated late night talk show on BET and most recently an Academy Award nomination, but she is also readying herself to embark upon a highly anticipated comedy tour—Spread the Love Tour 2010. Joining Mo’Nique on this year’s Spread The Love Tour will be her BET late night talk show counterpart comedian and actor Rodney Perry, comedian Tone-X, who will serve as the resident Man on the Street for the tour, and DJ Ant.
“On this tour people can expect the kind of laughter that makes the bottom of their stomach hurt,” said Mo’Nique. “And the type of love you’ll never forget.”
As it makes its trek across the country, Mo’Nique’s Spread the Love Tour will hit 20 cities during its run. The tour will kick off in New Orleans, LA at the Kiefer UNO Lakefront Arena on Saturday, March 19th and will conclude in Connecticut in May. The show is being presented across the country by AEG Live with tickets going on sale in select cities beginning Friday, February 19th. Tickets will be available at aeglive.com, all Ticketmaster locations and online at ticketmaster.com and at the respective venue’s box offices.
The term triple threat would be diminishing from the powerful range, the all consuming presence and the undeniable talent and reach of Baltimore native Mo’Nique. Whether she’s spreading the love and empowering women across the country through her outreach or making millions laugh with her unapologetically, raw in your face comedic antics, Mo’Nique continues to touch the masses with her keepin’ it real, no holds barred persona and attitude.

What Mo’Nique will be bringing to each city on the Spread the Love Tour will be no different real, raw, rowdy and riotous.
