Nurse Blake Announces ‘Shock Advised Comedy Tour’


Laughter is the best medicine, as the saying goes, and thankfully Nurse Blake has a bunch of new tour dates lined up. Blake Lynch – aka comedian, nurse and viral video star Nurse Blake – is following up his 2022 “PTO Comedy Tour” with a massive 100-city “Shock Advised Comedy Tour.”

Nurse Blake made a name for himself with his original comedy videos about the healthcare profession, which he originally shared as a way to deal with the stress of his job.

His “2022 PTO Comedy Tour” began as a 14-show run and expanded to 55 shows, thanks to demand. Nurse Blake’s shows feature live skits, videos and interactive stories from his life.

“I’m so excited to hit the road again this year and meet my amazing community IRL,” said Nurse Blake. “The 2022 PTO tour was my biggest tour to date and I know this year will be even better. The room will be so electric, shock is advised!”

The “Shock Advised Comedy Tour” kicks off July 25 with a show at the William A. Egan Civic Center in Anchorage, Alaska. Stops include Las Vegas’ The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan, Denver’s Ellie Caulkins Opera House, Los Angeles’ The Novo, Montreal’s L’Olympia, Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre and more. Check out the routing below. 

Blake has worked in a number of healthcare roles including serving as a registered nurse. Highlights from his career include managing several large programs including The Banned4Life Project, which ended an outdated FDA blood donor policy, and creating the nursing conference NurseCon at Sea. He is also behind NurseCon App, which promises free continuing nursing education courses, and 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.

Box office reports submitted to Pollstar for Nurse Blake include a Nov. 14, 2021, show at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco that sold 1,268 tickets and grossed $60,966.
