As a comedy show, we spend a lot of time on the road. Traveling from one area to another to see who we will meet on the other end is part of the fun, but it can become boring if you are not completely prepared with everything you could possibly need and a good sense of humor even after being crammed into the bus for days. However, rolling the show on the road is what we do and we love every moment of it; most of the time.
You may imagine that a traveling comedy tour is nothing but a good time. To us, it is long hours spent in close quarters with others. We enjoy it. We love our job and the places that we are able to see as we travel from coast to coast and back again, but loving it doesn’t mean it is easy. We give up a lot of conveniences and spend a lot of time trying to find items that make our life easier when we step off the bus.
We have a lot of things that we consider absolute necessities. Car chargers with multiple wires so that we can all charge up at the end of a day would be one thing and perhaps the most important one. From there, our Wi-Fi hotspot box, our own toiletry items, a GPS system, and anything else we can put into our bag of tricks. One thing that we have discovered that helps us do even more than pile up in the bus is to bring along our cooler with wheels. It allows us to take the drinks wherever we are so that we can spend at least the time between arrival and departure from a show, out of the van. It is something that we have also discovered works well for us during the slower times when we can venture out to the lake or stop to sightsee some beautiful area along our route and if you do not have Yeti Cooler Wheels on your cooler; we suggest you get some. It just makes life so much easier when away from home.
On to the Next Show
As we prepare to head out again, we look for new items to make it easier to enjoy our road trip. We have a lot of things to do before we head out and we have a lot of routes to plan. When you have show dates that mean you leave home for a month and stop only for a few hours at night; you have to spend time with family and friends before you go. Otherwise, we cannot be as happy as we should be for the people who expect us to give them a good laugh. We also think up new stories to tell people so that they have reason to laugh with us and then we can share those stories on the bus as we travel to try and keep each other lifted up. Often, our best stories are those about the kids and our spouses because they are what makes our travels worth it.
