Just got back from a family vacation to Walt Disney World outside of lovely Orlando, Fla. They say it’s difficult for a single guy my age to meet women at Disney World, but I met plenty of them. And their kids. And their husbands. Fun times.
Actually. Disney World does offer comedy (and I knew this going in, because Gabe Denning had just come from Orlando and Disney when we both joined an improv troupe in Seattle back in 1996).
Anyhow. If you’re curious about such things, the Magic Kingdom has a new attraction called Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor, based on the hit animated movie. It’s an animated live comedy show built for kids, and by kids, too, as anyone is invited beforehand to type in jokes and see if the characters use them during the show. Downtown Disney’s Pleasure Island also features a place called The Comedy Warehouse that offers live improv comedy in the short-form game style you’ve seen on Whose Line is it Anyway? And Cirque du Soleil has a freestanding big top there, too, for its show La Nouba, which offers jobs for serious clowns (the show itself is great, btw).
