Quit Your Day Job Comedy Tour Fund

Quit Your Day Job Comedy Tour Fund

From Matt Ward

We are raising money to pay for gas and food on our 15 day tour in January. We will try to be funny enough to get the weed and booze given to us after/during/before shows.

Wow, what can we say, so many thanks to give to all the recent donations. We are getting support from sponsors, fellow comedians, friends and more.

Also, Bryce Damuth just finished our AMAZING tour poster. It couldn't have come out any better!!

We are at 71% of our goal for this tour. Also, we are starting to get some interest from media outlets about covering the tour along the way in a few different cities.

Things are looking good!

More Info

The Quit Your Day Job Comedy Tour is about dreams. For Matt Ward and Grady Ray (aka Jason Smith), stand-up comedy has become their dream job.  To be able to travel around the country making people laugh is amazing.

In 2010 Matt left his corporate job at Verizon Wireless to go it alone as a comedian and comedy promoter.  A few years later Grady Ray did the same leaving his job with the Newport, Tennessee police department.

Not everyone is able to quit their job and pursue their dreams. Live vicariously through the Quit Your Day Job Comedy Tour by donating today.

Update #3

We have eclipsed 20% of our goal! Thank you for helping. As a reward, here is a picture of tour fatigued Grady Ray from the 2012 Quit Your Day Job Tour. Don't worry, disparaging pictures of me coming as the funding project continues!

Exceeded 10% of our goal in just the first day! Thanks to all who have donated so far.

Spent some time this morning following up with my contacts in New Orleans and vicinity. Should have some more dates added to the tour by weeks end! Attached, another pic from the last Quit Your Day Job Comedy Tour in 2012.
