A good adventure is a journey with a quest. Our adventure of zig zagging across the country from Portland to Portland, from the Pacific to the Atlantic is no different. We also have a quest with several goals.
The first goal of our quest is simple, and what one would expect from a comedy tour: to be funny, to hone our craft of the funny & perform as often as possible. If all works out the way we hope we will be performing almost every night (besides a few well timed days "off") in a different town/city across the country. In front of audiences from different regions and cultures all with the same hope: to laugh.
Another goal of our quest is to give. We plan to join with VetTix.org as we have for other shows, and give as many tickets as we can for each show, to veterans and service members and their partners. In a very small way, we want to honor those that risk their lives for us as well as their partners who also give a great sacrifice. We also want to give in other capacities over our 3 1/2 month tour: random acts of kindness, fundraising shows, and promoting non-profit organizations. Do you have a fundraising need or a non-profit you would like promoted?
A quest across the United States wouldn't be complete without wanting to see the country itself, although it's easy on a comedy tour to drive to hotel to club to hotel only stopping for Taco Bell and a shower, we want more out of this trip. We both have places we want to see, and places we want to show each other. However, this is the Newlywed Tour, so we decided to make our quest more literal. We are going to be searching for "The Most Romantic Spot in the Country" Although this is subjective, we will be sharing our findings. We want to evaluate at least one spot per state. From sunsets over the stark plains, to epic mountain vistas, small southern towns with trees dripping with Spanish moss, beachside chairs watching sailboats in the distance or trails through wild national forests; we're excited where this aspect of our journey will find us.

Do you have any suggestions on romantic places we need to see in this country along our route? We're hoping for the hidden gems in tucked away places.
