If you’re not following the newly-retired-from-basketball Shaquille O’Neal on Twitter, you’re doing it wrong. So, so wrong. Before you continue, click here, click follow, and let Shaq’s nuggets of truth wash over you. You’re welcome.

Shaq is one of the funniest people on Twitter these days, so I’m personally happy to see he’s lining up a pretty hardcore comedy tour. On Friday, September 9th, in Memphis, Shaq’s All-Star Comedy Jam will begin a 20-city fall tour, potentially featuring folks like Aries Spears, Corey Holcomb and Tommy Davidson.

Can’t make any of the dates? Good news: the tour will be filmed for a reality show called All-Star Comedy Jam Backstage Pass.

Tickets are on sale today at
