Moxie Studio logo PALM SPRINGS, CA -- APRIL 13, 2010: After cracking up audiences for more than a decade on 70+ gay cruises on the high seas with Atlantis Events, comedian Shann Carr's land-locked fans are clamoring for a healthy dose of Shann-tastic fun. This summer from May through July, she'll set sail across the US in an RV with a red-necked sidekick, two dogs and revolving camera crews for 90 days and 10,000 miles filming a comedy-reality series about surviving on today's gay entertainment circuit.  Carr, a 26-year gay comedy veteran says "I'm craving the nitty gritty of hitting the road hard and leaving a discernable dent in it.  It is exhilarating to plop down into a new city every couple of days and mark steps with the fans living there.  It keeps your show fresh and coming from a gut level.  Instead of cruise ship buffets and snorkeling we'll be having Top Ramen cook-offs and fireside RV camp-outs!" 

  Out For Laughs: The Land Cruise will motor through cities across the US from May through July sprinkling fun-loving gay comedy out onto the landscape of gay and not-so-gay America.  Shann and her sidekick, aspiring comedian, Ken Cypert, a self proclaimed hillbilly from Arkansas now residing in New York, will perform at gay events large and small including pride celebrations, summer festivals and various truck stops and dive bars along the way. They'll frolic with other gay & lesbian performers and interact with the locals and capture it all on film. They'll drink in the gay nightlife  and get into all sorts of mischief hanging out with real people who live delightfully gay lives. All of this goes 'in the can' to create a comedy/reality series called "Out For Laughs: The Land Cruise".

  Stops on the tour include gay meccas like Key West, Fire Island, Fort Lauderdale, Provincetown, SF, Rehoboth Beach, Las Vegas, Dallas and Chicago.

The tour is being sponsored by many gay and gay-friendly businesses including Club W, Triangle Inn Palm Springs, Streetbar, Urban Finley, PNN, Jumphouse Design, The Snowden Group, Intriguism, Malin Studios 100 and others.
