This One Time (The Podcast) | Comedians Tell Funny Travel Stories From The Road

Listen each week to hear how comedians adapt to the quirks that life tends to throw in our paths when we leave our comfort zone for a little adventure. A little too much, perhaps.

Because of the traffic and the typhoon, we didn’t get out all that much when we were in Manila. But we really didn’t care, because the fine folks at the Sofitel Manila Plaza took great care of us. Our top-floor room had a great view of the bay, and their cheese room (yes, an entire room dedicated to cheese) was a welcome sight for two weary travelers from lactose-intolerant Bangkok. If you see us and it seems we’ve put on a few pounds, we’ll thank you for keeping it to yourself. When we did brave the traffic, it was to either a) battle with the Royal Thai embassy or b) deal with dental emergencies. The first is a story of needless bureaucracy (why the hell don’t all embassies for the same country follow the same rules?) and the
