Lewis Black organizes a comedy cruise with his funny friends

Maybe all of those ads in Aruba for Aruba have convinced Lewis Black that he's ready to take his comedy to the Caribbean. Well, at least for a week. On a boat. With some of his funny stand-up comedian friends: John Pinette, Susie Essman, Dom Irrera, Kathleen Madigan, John Bowman, Larry Wilmore and Ted Alexandro.

Lewisblackcruise Because that's what's happening this November. It's Lew's Cruise? Yes. Lew's Cruise. As Black himself explains on the site:

"Because this show just can't happen on dry land. A cruise offers the possibility of a week of unlimited fun. And we can all go a little crazy and just walk back to our rooms. It provided me the opportunity to spend time with my good friends, who also happen to be some of the funniest people I know. And its a week of non-stop comedy and all sorts of chances for you guys to see where the funny comes from with q and a's and all sorts of other surprises that will be revealed shortly on this site.

"Don't whine to me if you miss this once in a lifetime opportunity. A vacation. And constant live entertainment. You can rock climb on this boat, why I don't know but you can. You can surf on this boat. Don't ask it wasn't my idea. So join us you pricks, who knows, it may even make me smile."

Other activities include a screening of My Favorite Year and Q&A with Mark Linn Baker, Madigan calling BINGO games, Irrera holding forth on his "Comedy Court," improv lessons with Joe Grifasi, and the other activities and excursions you can normally expect on a cruise.

It'll all take place on Royal Carribean's Liberty of the Seas, seven nights, leaving Miami on Nov. 7, 2010, and heading to Costa Maya, Mexico; Belize City, Belize; Cozumel, Mexico; and George Town, Grand Cayman. Prices for the cruise start at $1,459, not including transportation to Miami.

  1. I’m looking for a copy of a radio skit done maybe 20 years ago (late
    70’s 80’s) that is about the greatest hockey goalie (fictional
    character)that ever lived. His name was The Gamper. The skit is all
    about how he saves every shot with the announcer yelling”shot/save,
    shot/save, shot/save, thru the whole routine
    then God fires a few at him and wastes him. I wanted it for my son
    who is a hockey goalie. They kepp shooting more and more pucks at him
    and even his
    own tean starts shooting at him.

  2. If you want to buy real estate, you would have to receive the credit loans. Moreover, my brother commonly takes a auto loan, which occurs to be really rapid.

  3. My husband and I went on the Lewis Black Comedy Cruise and loved every minute. We’ve even signed up for the next one in November 2011. In fact, I wrote some limericks about Lew’s Cruise here.

  4. I shifted to Caribbean last week and went for Lewis Black Comedy. There is no need to say that it was superb experience. We people really enjoyed every second. I will never forget it.
