New Line sends Ferrell on Semi-Pro standup tour

semipropic.JPGTo promote Semi-Pro, New Line is sending star Will Ferrell out on a standup tour of colleges around the country, reports Variety.

The tour, titled “Will Ferrell’s Funny or Die Comedy Tour Presented by Semi-Pro” will feature Ferrell and other comedians. The tour obviously is also meant to hype Ferrell’s FunnyOrDie.com comedy website and clips from the shows being performed will be posted there.

FunnyOrDie will also be hosting videos to promote Semi-Pro in the weeks leading up to the movie’s release.

Like I said when talking about John C. Reilly’s Walk Hard-related Dewey Cox tour, these guys are big fans of bringing the funny with them out from behind the camera.
