Eddie B: Teacher's Only Comedy Tour
Eddie B is comedy on steroids! The Houston native is singlehandedly changing the comedy game, tapping into the minds of teachers around the world and selling out major arenas throughout the country in minutes!
The phenomenon, which began with a series of videos entitled “What Teachers Really Say” (written, produced, and starring Eddie B) has tapped into a niche only this multi-faceted comic/teacher can comprehend. Through a rigorous comedic set characterized by original material and accented by physical comedy, Eddie B says what teachers everywhere are thinking but couldn’t quite say out loud, until now. He is now the official “voice of teachers” and is currently in talks to parlay the mega success of his tour into a book deal as well as television and big screen versions of his wildly popular viral videos. Millions of educators on social media are calling the “Teacher’s Only Tour” their very own stress reliever and they are filling their favorite venues to capacity eager to hear Eddie B speak THEIR mind!

Rupi Kaur: America Tour
Rupi Kaur is a poet, artist, and performer. At the age of five, her mother handed her a paintbrush and said, “Draw your heart out.” At seventeen, she happened upon a local open mic night where she performed her first spoken word poem. While studying at the University of Waterloo, Rupi wrote, illustrated, and self-published her first collection, milk and honey. In the years since, milk and honey has become an international phenomenon. It’s sold over 3 million copies, been translated into more than 35 languages, and landed as a #1 New York Times bestseller—where it has spent more than 100 consecutive weeks.
Rupi's long-awaited second collection, the sun and her flowers, was published in 2017 and debuted as a #1 global bestseller. Within the first three months it sold a million copies and was embraced by readers worldwide. She’s a Forbes 30 under 30, an editor of the 2016 Mays Literary Anthology of New Writing from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and one of BBC’s 100 women of 2017.
