Favorite vacation destination? One of my favorite places I’ve been to is Thailand. The people were so nice, the food was amazing and there are so many beautiful places there. It was truly one of my most memorable vacations and I can’t wait to go back. And of course Italy will always be a favorite for my wife and I because we eat “Lady and the Tramp” pasta.

Favorite food or drink while on vacation? If I travel abroad I always like to try the local cuisine, so I usually start by ordering any dish popular in that country. Ditto with the drinks. But my favorite food when I travel to the United States is usually a burger. I also like to try the local cafes. And if I’m in a bar, I get old fashion.

Where would you like to travel but haven’t done so? I was lucky to have traveled all over the country because of the stand-up. I also lived in Spain for a year right after college, so I went all over Europe – but there were a few places that I missed like Denmark, Ireland and Croatia. I would love to go back and visit some of these places.

An item that you can’t leave home without when traveling? I love my Bose noise canceling headphones. They make a big difference on the plane when you want some peace and quiet or if you are watching a movie.

Aisle or window? I usually prefer the window because I like to sleep on the plane, but my wife Jax also likes the window and I was told “happy wife, happy life” so I get the window seat. Joke!

Favorite childhood travel memory? My family didn’t have a great vacation when I was young because we couldn’t afford it, but my parents were saving all year so that we could take a little trip to Holden Beach in NC in summer. There were five of us in this little house, but we didn’t care. We loved being at the beach and had so many great memories there.

Guilty pleasure when traveling? Probably ice cream. I had to cut it up at home because obviously you can’t just eat ice cream all the time. So I save it for when I’m on the road. I will try a local ice cream shop that people have recommended. And from time to time it makes me dance.

The best travel advice? Take a small roll-up bag for your dirty laundry. You can find reusable ones that close. You don’t want your smelly clothes to mix with your clean clothes. You’ll thank me later.
