Wicked Funny: Portland Comics Teach Us About Desert Of Maine
Local dubbahs Troy and Mark (pronounced Mahhk) are back with a hilarious new video to teach us more about the state we love. The video series is called "Welcome To Maine". It's educational and friggin' wacky.
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.
We debuted the first episode in August. It was shot on location at Portland Head Light. Troy does the talkin' and gives us some history how the iconic Maine landmark came to be. Mark affirms his statements with lots of "Yuh".
Today's adventure takes us to the Desert of Maine in Freeport. How the heck did all that sand get there in first place? Troy has all the answers. Marks keeps the "Yuh" comin'.
Future destinations that Troy and Mark plan on visiting include The Moxie Plant, The Lobster Pound, LL Bean and more great places Maine features.
Initially, we were told that this would be a weekly series. Since there's been around four weeks between episode one and episode two, safe to predict this may be a monthly series. Fine by us. It's worth the wait.
Ian and James 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.
