Event producer Rip Micheals also serves as host and will be joined on stage by fellow comedians Emmanuel Hudson, Conceited, Zoie Fenty aka GotDamnZo, Daphnique Springs, and Brandon T. Jackson. The tour also features DJ Envy on the turntables.
In Dallas, 5120 which is sponsoring the event collaborated with Texas Metro News and The Dallas Examiner; in Houston it was The Houston Forward Times and Publisher/NNPA Chair Karen Carter Richards; and in Detroit it was Publisher/NNPA Board Member Hiram Jackson and The Michigan Chronicle.
5120 provided more than 350 tickets among the four publications to promote the event.
“We want to demonstrate how important the Black press is in America and for our company to come into these cities and not engage with these newspapers is not in the best interest of our business model,” said Eugene Parker, CEO of 5120 Entertainment.
In September 2022, a preview of the Fall Back in Love Comedy & Music Jam tour made stops in Washington, DC, Chicago, and New York, showcasing a lineup similar to the 2023 tour, with the addition of Tory Lanez for two out of the three dates. The Chicago show made headlines when it was reported that Tory Lanez allegedly punched August Alsina backstage. Additional artists and tour dates for the 2023 Fall Back in Love Comedy & Music Jam are yet to be announced.
