Bruce Campbell's My Name is Bruce Nationwide Tour Details!
So apparently it's now official - not only is Bruce Campbell's My Name is Bruce hitting theaters, but Campbell is touring across the country debuting it in 20 cities over the next few months. Fangoria has debuted the full tour schedule, which kicks off on October 26th in Austin, TX and ends on December 19th in Los Angeles, CA. If you need a refresher, My Name is Bruce is the comedy directed by Campbell and starring Campbell as himself. In it, he is mistaken for his character Ash from the Evil Dead movies and forced to fight a real monster in a small town in Oregon. It sounds like an instant B-movie cult classic and should be an awesome film to watch with Campbell. I know you can expect to see me at one (or all) of the Los Angeles showings in December. The full schedule of dates and cities can be found below.
Thanks again to Fangoria for listing all of these below. Check back on their site or here for updated theater listings once they're announced. Campbell will be in attendance at all of the screenings and will host a Q&A afterwards. My Name is Bruce is (of course) rated R and also stars Ted Raimi and Grace Thorson.

We debuted a half-assed trailer for this movie way back in December, so check it out if you haven't yet. I don't think that trailer is going to convince anyone to go to these screenings, so I would suggest you simply use your undying dedication to Bruce Campbell to help make the right decision. Bruce did this kind of tour previously with both Bubba Ho-Tep and Man with the Screaming Brain as well as his book "Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way" and I know those went over very well. I really can't wait for this tour to swing around to Los Angeles, although it sucks being dead last on the list. I've been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to see My Name is Bruce for over two years - and now it's finally here! Don't miss out!

W...T...F????? OK, I know I live in a shitty part of the country, but he's not even going to be setting foot down here in the South? 🙁

WTF? no Vegas showing?
Paul Gregoire on Sep 4, 2008
Yeah man, where's the southern love? There are plenty of Evil fans down here.

Why does the South always get left out? Yeah there was that civil war that happened but really you guys need to get over it. Give the South some nerd love for once.
Jesse on Sep 4, 2008
Yeah! Go Philly!

The south always gets left out because nobody likes the south. Remember the Civil War? Oh yea you do because all you rednecks keep waving the confederate flag and hanging up in your unmowed yards next to the abandoned truck and old couch. Yea it looked cool on the General Lee from Dukes of Hazzard, but its time to transition into this century. And whats with the lack of dental work? This isnt Europe. And would someone please put an end to that phony Red Neck Comedy Tour. Anyone watch Family Guy? Then you know what Im talking about. And by the way, my aunt's from NORTH Boston!!...... Massatuchets!!!!!

Austin, TX is in the south. Read a map.

Wow that second poster looks really crappy. 🙂 I will probably catch this one on DVD as the chance of seeing this on the big screen in Sweden is essentially less than zero.

I got to see it at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin. Bruce's movie was honestly one of the best comedies I have seen all year (a surprising admission after how much I loved "Sex Drive"), and his post-movie standup- er... I mean interview... ahem... was better still. All I can say is that you will not be disappointed. Well worth the trip if you love your Campbell camp! Campbell, it does a body GOOD!

He's not coming to Madison. it's been removed from his website, and the theater says it was cancelled.

I went to the screening in Toledo, OH last night and I loved it. Sure it's a B-movie, but it's not trying to be anything but that. Bruce did a Q & A Session after the showing and was hilarious! That was well worth the price of admission. I would urge anyone to go see it. Give me some sugar, Baby!
