Del Shores, creator of the cult franchise Sordid Lives is touring his hilarious new standup show!

This is Shores' third national tour and in DEL SHORES: NAKED.SORDID.REALITY. he will share more sordid stories about his Texas family, read letters he's written to the haters (including Newt and Kirk Cameron), act out scenes from your favorite reality shows (including Hoarders, The Kardashians and The Housewives of Beverly Hills) and yes, he will address his new, unexpected, single life.

"Del says what most people think. He has no censor -- on or offstage. Audiences love him because of his bless-their-hearts' Texas charm," explains Caroline Rhea. "Look, I've had a rough few months, okay. I'm bitter and mean and don't give a shit, so no telling what I'll say this time!" Shores warns.

He recently completed his new film Blues For Willadean, staring Beth Grant, Octavia Spencer, Dale Dickey, David Steen and Debby Holiday due out later in 2012.
