Just because some comedians mastered the art of being the ‘class clown’ during their younger years, doesn’t mean they took education as a joke. As a matter of fact, many comedians have educational and professional backgrounds as varied as the stages
they grace. As part of their college experiences, quite a few comedians have made a lifetime commitment to respective Greek-lettered organizations. Now, one comedy tour is looking to make some noise with several of these comedians who share similar backgrounds with The Greek Comedy Tour.
Although The Greek Comedy Tour – founded in June 2016 – is a new kid on the block, the show features veteran comedians who have mastered the art of comedic prowess. Featured comedians include Steve Brown, T Ray Sanders, Lavar Walker, Tyler Chronicles, and Kelly Kellz. The tour founder, comedian Christopher Columbus, who is a proud member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., created the show to provide organizations with alternative ways to fundraise. To date, the tour has traveled, both domestically and internationally, allowing people of all backgrounds to enjoy what’s universal: laughter.
So in honor of unity (and to see how much you know), here are 5 joke-tellers who are each members of Greek organizations:
1. CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER
Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
Cedric the Entertainer began Greek life in 1984 where he pledged at Southeast Missouri State University.
2. WANDA SYKES
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
Sykes became an ‘AKA’ at Hampton University.
3. KEENEN IVORY WAYANS
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
Wayans pledge Alpha Phi Alpha while attending Tuskegee University.
4. J. ANTHONY BROWN
Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity
J. Anthony Brown first joined the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity in Nashville, Tennessee.
5. SHERYL UNDERWOOD
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority
