In promotion of his comedy Semi-Pro, Will Ferrell will be setting out on a tour to do something you have probably never seen him do: stand-up comedy. The event is called "Will Ferrell's Funny or Die Comedy Tour Presented by Semi-Pro," and will feature Ferrell as the headliner for seven shows over three weeks in February, leading up to the movie's Feb. 29 release date. Other stand-up comics involved are Zach Galifianakis, Demetri Martin, and Nick Swardson.
The tour will kick off Feb. 4 in Kansas and will include stops at colleges in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Boston, and North Carolina. A video crew will follow Ferrell and Co. and clips from the stand-up shows will be posted on FunnyorDie.com.
Now that the full trailer for Semi-Pro has just hit the Internet, we can get a look at what Ferrell will be working so hard to promote. The trailer, which you can watch after the jump, seems to include some funny quips by Ferrell, but not much else. Maybe they're saving all the awesome bits for the movie itself?
