GREEN BAY – Health care workers, this one is for you.
Comedian Nurse Blake, the registered nurse whose social media videos have garnered him more than 3.5 million followers, is bringing his Shock Advised Comedy Tour to The Weidner at 8 pm Oct. 28.
The 100-city North American tour kicks off in July in Alaska and wraps up in December in Hawaii. It follows his popular PTO Comedy Tour in 2022.
Nurse Blake, whose real name is Blake Lynch, first started posting comedy videos aimed at fellow health care workers as a way to cope with the stress of his nursing job. His humor quickly resonated with nurses and nursing students, particularly through the challenges of the pandemic and ongoing staffing shortages. His TikTok videos alone have nearly 17 million likes.
His live shows are a mix of live skits, videos and interactive stories from his own life with an abundance of inside jokes about nursing work, everything from wearing Dansko shoes to being on hold with the pharmacy department and failing to update your whiteboards.
