Together, one dollar at a time can change our world! This tour isn’t driven by celebrity and hype! This tour is driven by driven and talented individuals who care a little more about where they live and their fellow man.

“F*U*N*N*Y! You were awesome! It was a pleasure watching you do your thing. Looking forward to you coming back for your Homeless Comedy Tour!”
The tour will feature various comedians throughout the country who bring down the house. A few of the featured comics will be Pat Godwin, Helen Maalik, Kate Brindle, Tyron Foston, The “Fryman” and MANY MORE! Each comedy show will be the normal exciting 90 minutes in length. The show will consist of an MC, Feature and the Headliner being HCT’s own, Amaru. The show will also have an occasional musical guest set or two.
This idea was the brain child of Amaru. It was actually his New Year resolution to “End Homelessness”. Once homeless himself, Amaru knows what it feels like to be in need, out in the cold and not having a place to call home. Although he, himself, is now a successful comedian, that means nothing to a bad economy. A bad economy knows no class! Most Americans are a paycheck away from being out on the street. While getting back on his feet, Amaru was without a lot of things we take for granted and found out that the most giving people on the planet are the homeless. People who had nothing themselves shared with Amaru. The kindness showed towards him by those who couldn’t afford a tooth brush was at times overwhelming for him. Amaru felt he could do more. He felt like life doesn’t have to be this way in a country where it is happily boasted as being so great. How could this be possible in the home of the brave and land of the free? How could this still be possible in the 21st Century?
The HCT will spearhead an effort to build a facility(s) that houses the homeless nationwide with the specific and mandatory task of caring for them with respect and dignity, while preparing them for re-entry into society, as productive and successful US citizens. It’s done for criminals, with a new prison going up every other month, so why not for people who just need a reset button in life? The end game is to “END HOMELESSNESS”! PERIOD! This tour is being fueled and powered by Twitter and Facebook users all over the country! Social media is here to stay and it will help change the world as we know it!
