Comedian Whitney Cummings has announced dates for her upcoming “Touch Me” stand-up comedy tour including a stop in Des Moines at Hoyt Sherman Place on Friday, October 15. The fall leg of the tour will span more than 25 cities and will feature Cummings’ signature take on the current culture and the return to touring after the COVID-19 pandemic. “Touch Me” is a play on Cummings most recent Netflix special, Can I Touch It? and will destigmatize and celebrate the importance of being together again after over 14 months of isolation. The beautiful thing about the phrase “Touch Me”, is that it has multiple meanings: the most obvious of course, is physical touch but there is also being touched emotionally, intellectually, spiritually and Cummings will cover it all.
