Have you heard the one about the stranded Carnival cruise? Hear Tracey B. Wilson tell all at Comix tonight

Every summer at Sketchfest NYC, you're likely to see Tracey B. Wilson darting about the sides of the audience with camera in hand as the festival's official photographer. This summer, Wilson traveled around North America as an official photog on Lady Gaga's concert tour. Last week, Wilson and her boyfriend (Jim Malone, strength coach for the San Diego Padres) took a vacation on a Carnival cruise ship to Mexico that caught fire, lost power and needed a lengthy tow back to San Diego. Yes. That cruise.


Tonight, Wilson will be joking about her experience at the 7 p.m. show at Comix, calling it, "One time, while stranded at sea…" If you go, tell Comix you're there to see Wilson!

As her Facebook event invite reads:

"Hi! I just got back from being Stranded at Sea on the Carnival Splendor. How was your week? 

If you love me, and are happy I made it out alive, you really should be at my show this Thursday. Come laugh with me about being part of of the most wildly hyped non-tragedy ever. (in case you missed me, on CNN, GMA, Nightline and the morning talk shows)"

Being a photographer, Wilson naturally captured plenty of moments from the cruise. She has a gallery of 104 photos from the Carnival Splendor.

She also made videos. Here's an Xtranormal animation compiling some of her favorite public service announcements made by the ship's officials.


And this is the moment help arrived. Sort of. Cue the chopper!
