The great Chris Rock is heading out a big standup tour for the first time in nine years. The "Total Blackout" tour starts in February and covers a lot of ground in March, April, and May before winding up in New Jersey for a show at Atlantic City's Borgata Event Center on June 3. Tickets for that go on sale Friday (12/9) at 11 AM. Chris announced the tour via a Facebook live session, and you can watch that announcement below.

Meanwhile, in other politically-charged comedy news, Bill Maher also has some tour dates coming up, including one of his own in NJ. He'll play Newark's New Jersey Performing Arts Center on June 25. Tickets for that go on AmEx presale Wednesday (12/7) at 10 AM, on local presale Thursday (12/8) at 10 AM, and on sale to the general public Friday (12/9) at 10 AM.
