I have a joke about the stereotype women like pilots because they travel and I say, "I travel too!" but of course, I am mostly going to places like Wisconsin, Kansas and Arkansas; not exactly "Eat Pray Love" travel. But the truth is, I do get to visit cool cities and lately I have been able to take advantage of that by exploring cities like Boston, Atlanta and Charlotte; places I would never go to if it wasn't for comedy. All of these cities have great "must see" tourist traps and food items and I am grateful for both, especially the food! This week I spent a lot of time in Boston and got to knock off another "bucket list ballpark from my list (Fenway Park).
Recently, I was discussing the "cruise ships" which a lot of comedians do since you get to travel to exotic places and don't have to worry about promoting and selling tickets for your shows. A lot of comedians like the cruise ship shows for these reasons and the pay is great. Personally, I rather stay on the mainland if I could get to a level where I am selling a ton of tickets for my own shows in comedy clubs.
I hope the rest of the year ends with more sold out shows mainland and I am excited for my shows in Columbus, Vegas, Winter Haven, Denver, Dallas and Philadelphia. Please spread the word if you know folks in these places! #standup #comedyclub #comedyshow #travel
