New NBC Series ‘Undateable’ To Promote Launch With Comedy Tour

Forget billboards, the co-creator and stars of NBC’s midseason comedy series Undateable are embarking on a multi-city, cross-country comedy tour to promote their show that will hit all the top TV markets. The tour will feature series co-creator/exec producer Bill Lawrence and stars Chris D’Elia, Brent Morin, Ron Funches and Rick Glassman  — all stand-up comedians —  with each show showcasing a stand-up set from each of the actors sneaking the humor on the show and Lawrence serving as host. “Since it’s so hard to launch a network comedy in this competitive landscape, we thought we would try a little grassroots marketing,” said co-creator/executive producer Adam Sztykiel. “Plus, it will be exciting to see Bill travel around in a van.”
