Kountry Wayne bringing his Help is on the Way Tour to Tanger Center on Saturday, March 4
Kountry Wayne, one of Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch in 2021, is bringing his Help is on the Way Tour to the Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, March 4, 2023. Tickets go on sale Friday, December 9 at 10 a.m. at TangerCenter.com
Kountry Wayne (a.k.a. Wayne Colley) has garnered a loyal following from his widely popular digital sketches and hilarious standup, generating an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers within the entertainment industry as one of comedy’s most notable rising stars.
Since his first Facebook post in October 2014 went viral, the charismatic comic has amassed millions of followers across Facebook and Instagram, where fans tune in daily to his viral sketches featuring original characters such as Drip and Buddy, with cameos from notable celebrities including Ludacris, Mike Epps, Charlamagne tha God and Lamar Odom, to name a few.
Keeping it real, mining comic gold from the everyday and applying his genius for freestyling, Wayne is a master comic storyteller. In 2017 Wayne embarked on the 150-date national “Child Support Tour,” selling out clubs and theaters across America. That wasn’t just a clever moniker – he’s the dad of ten kids and even as he builds his own entertainment legacy, he’s all about securing the future for them.
“My hashtag, my mantra, is ‘Help is On The Way!’ – that’s my slogan, I own it, because I believe God’s got my back and your back and whatever is stressing you out today, it won’t last because help is truly on the way,” says Wayne, whose endearingly funny way with English comes from growing up “Kountry” in Millen, GA (pop. 3500), between Statesboro and Augusta. He was given what became his stage name during a stint living and going to school in Savannah in the mid-2000s.
