BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Comedian Sam Morril is coming here to the Lyric here in Birmingham on June 10. Birmingham is the 10th stop on his “Class Act Tour” where he is traveling around the nation.

Morril’s latest hour standup special “Same Time Tomorrow” is currently streaming on Netflix. He also just premiered a new sports podcast “Games with Names”, which he co-hosts with former NFL wide receiver Julian Edelman.
