Carnival Cruise Line is to host 25,000 shows in the Punchliner Comedy Club which is featured across the entire fleet.

Carnival’s Punchliner Comedy Club is making thousands of cruise passengers laugh this year and the cruise line has revealed 25,000 shows are to be featured throughout the fleet. The cruise line is boasting more comedians and performances than any U.S. land-based comedy club.

Sarah Reno, Carnival’s vice president of entertainment, said:

“Our guests love to laugh and have fun and the Punchliner Comedy Club is by far one of the most popular venues on board with both established and up-and-coming comedians who keep audiences laughing and entertained”

“Plus, many guests have never been to a comedy club so this is a wonderful way for them to try something different and check out an entirely new form of entertainment”

Carnival Cruise Line features the complimentary shows several times a day in the ships comedy club. Highly rated comedians will often fly to meet the ship and perform at least one shows before meeting the next vessel in port. The cruise line hosts 30-mintes performances including PG-rated and R-rated. Around 10 shows are featured on shorter cruises and 20 on the larger itineraries.

Added Chris Nelson, Carnival’s senior director of entertainment:

“We search the world for the top comedians and fly them onto each cruise for limited engagements.  Not only is Carnival one of the largest presenters of comedy in the world, we are the only cruise line to provide an authentic comedy club experience on every single voyage.”

Carnival also hosts Carnival LIVE shows which feature even more comedians onboard the ships.  Jeff Foxworthy will be up next months onboard Carnival Freedom and Carnival Ecstasy when docked in Nassau, Bahamas.
