These guys are the new generation of Maine humorists. If you love the old school stuff like Bert and I or Tim Sample and love the riotous musings of Bob Marley, we bet that Troy and Mark will be right up your alley. They are the stars of the almost weekly series, Welcome To Maine on YouTube and Facebook.

Since last August, Troy and Mark have been our tour guides to all things weird and wonderful in the Pine Tree State. So far, they've checked in from Portland Head Light, The Desert of Maine, The Moxie Store in Lisbon Falls, B & M Baked Beans in Portland, the Paul Bunyan statue in Bangor, Stephen King's house, the Cryptozoology Museum, and more.

Troy and Mark are played by Portland comics James Theberge and Ian Stuart respectively. We should also say that they play them respectfully, as their portrayals the Maine everyman are spot on. They get us, because there are us. They are actual Mainers who also happen to be brilliant comedians.

Well my friends, it's time for another hilarious new episode of Welcome to Maine.

Now that summertime is about to become official on Father's Day, our favorite dubbahs are here with some helpful safety for our all-too-short and sometimes wicked hot season.

The most important takeaway for us here is...maybe it's a good idea to keep your sunscreen away from the salad dressing.


Ian Stuart and James Theberge will be performing live with Paul Hunt as the Maine Comedy All-Stars at Aura in Portland, Maine on August 19.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
