CAST AND CREATORS OF NBC'S NEW COMEDY "UNDATEABLE" EMBARK ON MULTI-CITY STAND-UP COMEDY PROMO TOUR

Bill Lawrence, Chris D'Elia, Brent Morin, Ron Funches and Rick Glassman Take the Funny on the Road

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - February 24, 2014 - Breaking the mold of a typical pre-launch promotion, the cast and creators of NBC's upcoming comedy series "Undateable" are hitting the road on a multi-city, cross-country comedy tour.

Led by the show's co-creator and executive producer Bill Lawrence ("Scrubs," "Spin City," "Cougar Town"), series stars Chris D'Elia, Brent Morin, Ron Funches and Rick Glassman - all stand-up comedians - will bring the "Undateable" comedy tour to venues across the country.

Each performance will showcase a stand-up set from each of the actors with Bill Lawrence serving as host. This tour will give audiences a sneak peak of the comedic humor that viewers can expect when "Undateable" premieres later this year on NBC.

"Since it's so hard to launch a network comedy in this competitive landscape, we thought we would try a little grassroots marketing," said co-creator and executive producer Adam Sztykiel ("Due Date"). "Plus, it will be exciting to see Bill travel around in a van."

A list of confirmed first-leg tour dates can be found below. For information on venues, additional dates or to purchase tickets, please visit http://www.nbc.com/undateable/comedy-tour

About "Undateable"

From Bill Lawrence ("Scrubs," "Spin City," "Cougar Town," "Clone High") and Adam Sztykiel ("Due Date," "Made of Honor"), "Undateable" is a new comedy series about a group of friends who are thisclose to finding a relationship - they just need a little help.

Whether it's due to a lack of style, the wrong job or even just a bad haircut, everyone goes through a time in their lives when they're undateable. Most of us eventually grow out of it, but some people need a little more help than others. Enter Danny Burton (Chris D'Elia, "Whitney"). Confident, attractive and impervious to outside opinions, 29-year-old Danny - who may be in a state of arrested development himself - decides to help out his new roommate, Justin Kearney (comedian Brent Morin), the owner of an unsuccessful bar and a chronic overthinker, and Justin's group of oddball friends - Shelly (comedian Ron Funches), Burski (comedian Rick Glassman) and Brett (David Fynn, "Game of Thrones"). Danny introduces the gang to his recently divorced older sister, Leslie (Bianca Kajlich, "Rules of Engagement"), who immediately bonds with this group of guys, as she feels a little stuck in her own life as well. The gang spends most of their time at Justin's bar, helping solve each other's respective problems over beers, and while they love to give each other a hard time, they always have each other's back.

Executive produced by Lawrence, Sztykiel and Jeff Ingold ("Ground Floor," "Surviving Jack"), "Undateable" is inspired by the book "Undateable: 311 Things Guys Do That Guarantee They Won't Be Dating or Having Sex" by Ellen Rakieten & Anne Coyle. The series is produced by Doozer in association with Warner Bros. Television.
