TRAVEL FEES WAIVED if you book when we are touring your general area. Travel Fees apply for overseas and shows not booked during pre-determined tour dates. Otherwise travel fees include air and ground transportation, meals and lodging for two.

Here's how we keep our rates low: By giving up a homebase and becoming notorious nomads way back in 1992, we are able to waive any additional travel expenses for shows scheduled along our yearly tour circuit. Plus, we eliminated the middleman (a.k.a. booking agent) who marks up costs and make matters confusing. When you call to book or ask any questions, you deal directly with the creators/directors.
