It’s a cruise to the Bahamas featuring an amazing lineup of music and comedy acts… on the music side we have Nellie McKay, John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats, Dan Deacon and John Roderick. On the comedy side, we have Marc Maron, John Hodgman, Nick Thune, Wyatt Cenac, Eugene Mirman, Jonah Ray and many more. Oh, and unlimited soft-serve ice cream.

The cruise (including a pre-party in Miami) runs September 12th-16th. Ticket sales end August 9th. So come join us for a certainly fun thing you will definitely want to do again.

“I saw a guy in Brooklyn once with a handlebar mustache, pierced ears, a fedora hat and jodhpurs. He was a collage of sartorial attempts at evading himself. It looked as if he were interrupted during a shave in the mid-1850s and had to grab some clothes and dress quickly while being chased through a time tunnel.”

Marc Maron

My friend Marc Maron, whose new TV show Maron just premiered on IFC, wrote this great piece for the Times about finding the perfect pants. And just living your life.

I’m really excited and proud to share with you my latest project: The Atlantic Ocean Comedy & Music Festival. This September, I’ll be setting off from the port of Miami with some of my favorite entertainers and a few hundred of our closest friends and associates. We’ll have two nights of comedy, one of music, and four days of fun in the sun. Also: shuffleboard.
Our performers list is absolutely amazing. 
On the comedy side, we’ll have Al Madrigal and John Hodgman from The Daily Show, Marc Maron from WTF, Kurt & Kristen (that’s Kurt Braunohler and Kristen Schaal), Maria Bamford, and Eugene Mirman. Plus a couple of comics I think are amazing who you should know about: Jasper Redd, Hari Kondobalu, Josie Long and Nick Thune. Every one of these people is among the best in the business.
The music side might be even better. We’ve got John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats. We’ve got the charming and beautiful Nellie McKay. We’ve got John Roderick of the Long Winters. And the party will be set off right by the amazing, amazing Dan Deacon. This will be unbelievable.
Besides all that, this is a classy cruise ship, not some Carnival monstrosity. Bring your good clothes. And your valet, if you’ve got one.
You can book your berth now - and your hotel room for the pre-party in Miami. It’s all online at the awesome website boatparty.biz.

All I Want For Christmas: Marc Maron

In our series All I Want For Christmas, we ask men we think are cool what they’d like to get as a gift this year.

Marc Maron is an comic, radio & podcast host and writer.  His hilarious show WTF, is one of the top comedy programs in iTunes, and he’s appeared on Late Nate with Conan O’Brien and The Late Show with David Letterman literally dozens of times.  So what does he want to wear next time he goes on national television?

I commit to shoes and boots. I mean for the long haul. I’ve got some that have outlasted my two marriages. I don’t have a lot of pairs. I have enough to rotate them in and out on a yearly cycle (not unlike wives apparently) so I don’t wear them out (like I did the wives). I just bought a pair of Red Wing Black Cherry Gentleman Traveler boots. I NEED the black ones. NEED. Seriously… NEED. Please buy them for me.
