Kyler Ayers, the comedian who opened shows across the country for Andy Frasco & The U.N. and BIG Something‘s Royal Rumble 2020 tour, has shared the fake setlists that he drew up every night on tour.
In a post to a public Andy Frasco fan page, “Andy Frasco’s Fro Ambassadors”, Ayers thanked the bands for the opportunity to open and join in the wrestling-themed mayhem across the country. Additionally, he also included fake setlists from every night he was on tour, beginning with a two-night run at the Charleston Pour House in South Carolina on February 6th and 7th.
The gag setlists feature plenty of friendly jabs at Frasco’s stage presence with songs like “what city are we in,” “ask audience for drugs,” “sing (open whiskey),” and other comical titles. Other times, Ayers would just write down the bands’ dinner orders—or, just to mess with Frasco, he would write all BIG Something songs. There was also an acrostic setlist that, when read vertically, referenced Jeffrey Epstein. There were geographic jokes, and even just the lyrics to “Photograph” by Nickleback.
Between the fake setlists, Ayer’s impromptu roast of Frasco on his birthday, and all of the wrestling-inspired antics that took place between the bands during the run, it’s safe to say that the Royal Rumble 2020 tour was a rousing success. Hopefully these gladiators step back into the ring sometime soon.
With their collaborative tour in the books, Frasco and BIG Something now go their separate ways. BIG Something has a bit of downtime before picking back up with a show at St. Pat’s in Five Points in Columbia, SC on March 21st, and proceeding to tour the Southeast. Frasco has no time off as he is now paired up with Umphrey’s McGee, providing opening support for a run of shows in the Pacific Northwest, until eventually resuming his headlining tour on March 3rd with a show at Humboldt Brews in Arcata, CA. Visit Frasco‘s and BIG Something‘s respective websites for tickets and tour information.

When I found out fans loved grabbing set lists from the stage after every show, I just started planting fake set lists at every show on tour w @andyfrasco and watching people grab them then get confused. Here are some of my faves. https://t.co/1AmhSTafHP pic.twitter.com/i2VzSUIdOu
