The original plan for the Organic Tour was for comedians Jarrod Harris and Ryan Singer to travel around the country in Harris' RV.

But when the motor home broke down the day before they were set to leave, the two had to improvise. Now, Harris is in a car pulling a trailer full of tour merchandise and film equipment for the documentary they're making about the tour, and Singer is following in a moving van. They're accompanied by film assistants and other comedians they'd planned to pick up along the way, they told an interviewer for Alabama Media Group at AL.com.

According to publicists, the Organic Tour is stopping at some of the alternative comedy scenes that have been springing up organically around the country.

"This tour will showcase the freedom of the art form that these venues allow and the people who have unwittingly created a place for comedians such as Jarrod and Ryan to come into their own before breaking through to the next level," said a news release. "This will be funny, weird, experimental and, most of all, organic."

JJ's Bohemia, 231 E. M.L. King Blvd., is the next to last stop on the tour. The show will start at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29. For more information, call 266-1400 or visit http://reverbnation.com/venue/jjsbohemia.
