NBC Universal, Inc.

Comedic icons Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are set to embark on their first-ever comedy tour later this year, and even though they will only visit four cities, Chicago was one of the lucky cities where fans will be able to catch the duo in action.

Poehler and Fey, who rose to fame together on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” before embarking on successful sitcom careers, will bring their “Restless Leg Tour” to Chicago and three other American cities later this year, according to a press release.

The tour will be a celebration of “thirty years of friendship with an evening of jokes, iconic stories and conversational entertainment,” according to a press release.

The duo will also stop in Washington, D.C., Boston and Atlantic City.

The Chicago tour date will take place on May 20 at the Chicago Theatre.

Ticket presales will begin on Wednesday at 10 a.m., according to LiveNation, using the promo code “RESTLESS.” General on-sale will begin at 10 a.m. Friday on Ticketmaster’s website.

Limited numbers of VIP tickets and other special offers will also be available, officials said.

Fey and Poehler have collaborated on a wide variety of projects over the years, most notably “Saturday Night Live” and the films “Baby Mama” and “Sisters.”

Fey was the driving force behind the film “Mean Girls” and created the sitcom “30 Rock,” with the show earning 16 Emmy victories during its seven-season run.

Fey graduated from the University of Virgina and then moved to Chicago, where she was a member of The Second City for several years.

Poehler is best-known for her work as Leslie Knope on “Parks and Recreation.” She has also collaborated with Nick Offerman on the NBC show “Making It” and with Maya Rudolph on the spinoff show “Baking it,” as well as appearing in films like “Inside Out,” among others.

Poehler is also an alum of The Second City, and also performed in shows with the Upright Citizens Brigade while living in Chicago.
