Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Watch the Throne” tour was hit a with fans, and inspiration to other industry titans but not just in the hip-hop realm! We reported last Thursday that the idea inspired funnyman Chris Rock to try and convince Dave Chappelle to go on a tour with him so that they could do a “Watch the Throne” inspired comedic routine.
Two hilarious men on tour together is a guaranteed #WIN so VIBE decided to round up 10 pairs of comedians that should go on tour together. —Krystal Holmes

10 Pairs Of Comedians Who Should Tour Together, Watch The Throne Style
Kathy Griffin and Sherri Shepherd
“The View” hosts have already shared a stage on ABC, but seeing them travel from city to city together would be even more fun.
Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy
If these two were to ever go on tour prepare for lots of cussing, punchlines and ethnic talk. If you remember the two together from the film Bowfinger, then you know exactly what we mean when we say they should go on tour.
Whoopi Goldberg and Ellen DeGeneres
These two are simply made to do a tour together. If anyone can get up in front of a crowd to make them laugh it would be them.
D.L. Hughley and Kevin Hart
Pairing up one of the “Original Kings of Comedy” with a possible future one is the smartest thing that can be done. The two “shorties” know how to make a crowd cry from laughter and we wouldn’t expect anything less than superb.
Nephew Tommy and Dane Cook
The king of impersonations partnered up with the man of long form story telling will give you hours worth of comic relief. Always remember that opposites attract and the two will definitely bring the funny to cities all over.
Wanda Sykes and Mo’Nique
Two sassy and feisty women in one night will have audiences co-signing that the way to anyones heart isn’t only through food, but laughter as well.
Jim Carrey and Ben Stiller
Pairing up the awkwardly hilarious Ben Stiller with the outgoing crazy Jim Carrey would be genius. The two are actually friends in reality, so making a tour come to life shouldn’t be that hard.
Aziz Ansari and Donald Glover
The two NYU graduates took the comedic route and made it big as some television and films most humorous men. Together the two can bring intelligent antics and personal experiences to the audience.
Jamie Foxx and Martin Lawrence
If you have the talent of being naturally funny without having to put forth any effort then consider yourself lucky. These two have it mastered and if they were to go on tour together tons of surprises would be in store.
Bill Bellamy and Chris Tucker
These two together would be hilarious! One has the high pitch voice effect and the other has coined words like “booty call.” There is no doubt that if these two were to go on tour crowds would be in store for some nonstop laughter.
