NBC Sends Ron Funches and Rest of Undateable Cast on Standup Tour

The network still hasn't set a premiere date for the comedy.

Former Portlander Ron Funches might still be waiting for his NBC series to hit screens, but at least he gets to embark on a nine-city standup tour with his co-stars.

Funches joined the cast of Undateable nearly a year ago, about a group of romantically challenged men. Though NBC has yet to set a premiere date for the scripted comedy—never a good sign—Deadline Hollywood reported today that it’s sending out Funches, co-stars Chris D’Elia and Brent Morin and co-creator and executive producer Bill Lawrence on a comedy tour. The four are all standup comics, which the network clearly hopes will generate some interest in the show. NBC has recently dumped two other scripted comedy shows, The Michael J. Fox Show and the Sean Hayes-starring Sean Saves the World.

The standup tour starts in New York on March 2 and ends March 20 in Los Angeles, hitting cities such as Chicago, Boston, Houston and Detroit. Portland isn’t on the list.
