Hilarious ‘Welcome To Maine’ Series Needs To Be State’s Official
When this series started in August these funny dudes from Portland promised it would be a weekly video series.
For some reason, that didn't happen at the start though. It was around a four week wait between episode one and episode two. They are picking up the pace though.
Troy and Mark are played by Portland comedians James Theberge and Ian Stuart, respectively.
The series is written, directed and edited by Ian. Our monster hunting buddy Bill Brock is behind the camera.
Episodes 2, 3, and 4 have been released closer to weekly. Whether we wait a 7 days or 30, it's fine by us. It's always worth the wait no matter how long it takes.
We debuted the first episode in August. It was shot on location at Portland Head Light. Troy does most all of the talkin' and gives us some history how the iconic Maine landmark came to be. Mark affirms his statements with lots of "Yuh".
The second episode came out a couple weeks ago. That adventure takes us to the Desert of Maine in Freeport.
Here comes episode four of "Welcome to Maine". A couple of our favorite dubbahs, Mark and Troy are back to educate about us about another wicked decent place in the state. Seriously, this need to be the official video campaign for the Maine Office of Tourism.
In the latest video, the fellahs are at the iconic B & M Baked Beans headquarters in Portland. Except they can't go inside.
It's also nice to see the nut tap has returned in the end too.
"Mind your franks...and your beans."
Future destinations that 'Troy' and 'Mark' plan on visiting include, The Lobster Pound, LL Bean and more of the great places that call Maine home.
Ian Stuart and James Theberge have performed together around the state in The Maine Comedy All Stars shows.
They can be found performing live stand up comedy for social distanced audiences at Stroudwater Distillery on Thompson's Point in Portland. The shows are on Thursdays at 7pm.
