truTV Announces First-Ever ADAM RUINS EVERYTHING LIVE! Tour

truTV announced today the first ever tour of ADAM RUINS EVERYTHING LIVE! which kicks off on September 13 in Seattle at the legendary Showbox. Starring comedian Adam Conover and featuring his trademark humor and wit, the 15-city live stage show will feature elements of the recently-announced Adam Ruins Everything Election Special, which will be shot immediately following the tour and premiere Tuesday, October 23 at 10pm ET/PT on truTV.

"I'm so excited to give audiences across the country a sneak peek of the Adam Ruins Everything Election Special before it hits truTV,” said Conover. “We'll be breaking down the history of our nation's election system, dispelling myths about our democracy, and diagnosing what makes this election different from any other. And every show will feature never-before-seen material that won't make it to TV and guarantees to blow your mind."

Tickets for ADAM RUINS EVERYTHING LIVE! go on sale this Friday, August 12 at at noon local time in each market. The tour is produced by AEG Live.

The Adam Ruins Everything television series stars Conover as he embarks on a comically inventive yet unrelentingly serious quest to reveal the hidden truths behind everything you know and love. Tackling topics ranging from football and weddings to drugs and prison, he gives you not just fun facts to know and tell your friends, but information that will make you see the world in a whole new way.

In the upcoming hour-long election special and on the corresponding ADAM RUINS EVERYTHING LIVE! tour, Conover brings that same approach to the upcoming presidential election and explains everything you need to know before entering the booth on Election Day.
