CAKE COMEDY JOINS FORCES WITH KICKSTARTER
FOR A BRAND NEW TOUR!
The CAKE Comedy Tour, featuring NYC-based comedians Carrie Gravenson,
Abbi Crutchfield, and Kaytlin Bailey, and LA-based comedian Erin
Judge, is teaming up with Kickstarter to pioneer a brand new way for
indie tours to sell more tickets and reach more fans. These hilarious
comics will use this innovative platform to bring their cutting-edge
stand-up show -- along with lots of amazing extras -- to cities and
venues all across the country.
CAKE founder Kaytlin Bailey worked closely with Kickstarter to design
the new platform, which helps independent artists launch self-produced
tours. “We’re not asking for donations,” explains Bailey. “We’re just
offering tickets and rewards well in advance, so fans can make sure
our tour gets to their town.”
“This is a brilliantly ambitious idea, and one of the coolest projects
I've ever seen,” says Taylor Moore, head of comedy at Kickstarter.
“This isn't just a comedy tour. It's the future.”
The women of CAKE started out together as the Pink Collar Comedy Tour
in 2012. They launched their original tour with a Kickstarter campaign
then traveled successfully as the Pink Collar Comedy Tour for 4 years,
hitting more than 60 cities, including Austin, Raleigh, New Orleans,
Toronto, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Charleston, and many
In 2016, the tour rebranded as CAKE, an acronym of the for comics’
first names. The women of CAKE deliver "smart comedy by female
comics," says the Boston Globe.
“CAKE Comedy is pioneering the future of how comedy gets made,” says
Kickstarter’s Moore. “Get involved now so you can say, ‘I was there.’"
