Nurse Blake is indeed a nurse but as his more than 3.6 million followers on social media know, he is a man of many talents. CAA announced this week that the agency has signed the registered nurse, influencer, author, podcaster, comedian and keynote speaker ahead of Blake’s fall international comedy tour.
Blake will continue “Nurse Blake: The PTO Comedy Tour” this fall with 50 dates scheduled in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia and The Philippines. The upcoming trek begins Sept. 7 in Santa Rosa, Calif., at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts.
Stops on the routing include two nights in Las Vegas as The Mirage Sept. 8-9; Orpheum Theater in New Orleans Sept. 23; Vogue Theater in Vancouver Oct. 8; two nights at The Wilbur Theatre in Boston Oct. 12-13; two shows at Danforth Music Hall in Toronto Oct. 17; Athenaeum Theatre in Melbourne, Australia Dec. 3; and Solaire Theatre in Manila, Philippines Dec. 11.
Tickets for most dates are available now, with the exception of the Manila gig. Several performances were recently added but tickets are going fast, with a number of dates already sold out.
Blake’s 2021 tour featured 50 theater shows including a Nov. 14, 2021, show at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco that sold 1,268 tickets and grossed $60,966, according to reports submitted to Pollstar.
In addition to his own headline dates, Blake has been the keynote speaker at conferences around the country.
Blake – who received his BSN from the University of Central Florida – has worked in a number of healthcare roles including serving as a registered nurse. He’s “managed several large programs including The Banned4Life Project, which ended an outdated FDA blood donor policy and Nurses Support Their Young to promote healthy work environments,” according to an announcement from his team.
He and his husband, Brett, currently co-host the Nurse Blake Podcast. As far as his writing career goes, he’s been a paid contributor to The New York Times and recently released the children’s book “I Want To Be A Nurse When I Grow Up,” which topped Amazon’s best-seller’s list in the children’s book category.
Impressively, his list of accomplishments goes on! Blake produces NurseCon at Sea, an annual cruise conference for the nurse community, and he launched the NurseCon App, “a free platform where nurses can receive their continuing education credits at no cost.”
