For his upcoming sports comedy, Semi-Pro, Will Ferrell is going back to live comedy. The SNL alum will join comics Zach Galifianakis, Demetri Martin, and Nick Swardson for a short road trip to promote the film. The quartet will play seven dates at universities during the month of February. Billboard has the details:
As a promotional effort for the tour, comedians who submit videos of their act to FunnyOrDie.com will have a chance to be featured on arena video screens during the tour. Winners of the contest will also receive video placement on an exclusive section of the “SEMI-PRO” movie Web site.
Set in 1976, the new comedy features Ferrell playing Jackie Moon, a one-hit-wonder musician who uses his success to buy a basketball team. “SEMI-PRO,” which also features actors Woody Harrelson and OutKast’s Andre Benjamin, is scheduled to hit theaters on Feb. 29.
