This One Time | Comedians Tell Funny Travel Stories From Bangkok and Beyond
About This Show
Travel long enough and you'll have a funny story to tell. But when comedians travel, their stories are that much funnier. 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.
Hosted by Evo Terra and Sheila Dee (collectively ShEvo) with (in)frequent guest appearances by other funny people.

Why Estonia Is The World’s Dumping Ground
7 days ago
Why Estonia Is The World’s Dumping Ground Estonia’s history is funny, so long as you like dark humor. Dark, as in murderous and depressing. But modern day Estonians seem to laugh it off, with a "well, anything has to be better than that past" attitude. And a lot of beer. For those following along, this is the last of four funny stories told while Evo was traveling near the top of the world in the winter. Previously, he told us why he’s now known as the American ice-hole, how Thai sauna can’t hold a candle to Finnish sauna, and the subtle differences between a KHL and an NHL hockey game. On this episode, he tells us why Estonia has been the dumping ground for the world. What? You don’t think that sounds funny? Think pratfall or physical comedy with a dark side. Then don’t stop for like 800 years. Evo was a guest of the Estonian Tourism board, and regardless of what he says on the episode you should definitely #visitEstonia. Though his grasp of history is rather shallow, he does have a connection, as he traces one of his earliest ancestors back to the early 1700s, where a great-great-great someone left the dark, cold, and apparently non-stop oppression and occupation of Estonia for a better life in America. A few highlights from this episode: We've been married longer than Estonia has been an independent country All of the old city of Tallinn is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site It's illegal to walk in the dark without a reflector Sneaky Estonians planned to build a monument to atheism out of a church
