Will Ferrell is going to bring his pompous airbag routine that he’s perfected over the last dozen or so movies to college campuses in support of his upcoming ABA basketball movie Semi-Pro.? The college tour, sponsored by Funny or Die, will also feature the talents of Zack Galifianakis, Dmetri Martin and Nick Swardson.
Ferrell will play be the highlight, however, as this will be his first standup tour since joining SNL so many years ago.? It’d be interesting to see how he does, since there’s no doubt he’ll be rusty.? Also, people will have the chance to submit clips to Funny or Die in an attempt to have them played throughout the tour, you know for those fifteen minutes of fame and all.
