Just a week and a half after he hammed it up for the media at his retirement press conference/party, NBA big man Shaquille O'Neal has announced he is captaining a fall comedy tour that will wrap up Nov. 19 at the State Theatre. Ticket info should be confirmed in a week or two. The tour, produced by AEG Live and Shaq Entertainment, is based on O'Neal's popular All-Star Comedy Jams that he puts on during the NBA All-Star weekend. Comedian DeRay Davis will host each show, and other performers will vary from city-to-city from a list that includes Aries Spears, Corey Holcomb, Tommy Davidson, Capone, Gary Owen and Tony Robert.
