Cruise ship comedy is a peculiar form of entertainment. It has the power to propel a relative unknown from obscurity to mini-stardom and back to anonymity all in one week.
I’m on the Holland America Oosterdam doing four weeks of comedy shows in Southeast Alaska. Over 3,000 people from 40 plus countries are working and vacationing together on one ship each week. It’s an amazing combination of military precision on the part of the staff and Vegas-style vacationing on the part of the “cruisers.”
