Too many captions to narrow it down so, this.

Cruise ship patron: “You were one of the comedians in the theater last night, right? Last name Brown?”
Me: “It’s Broome and yes, that was me.”
Cruise ship patron: “I thought the second guy was great!”
CSP: “You’re the comedian, right? I think you’re so funny.”
Me: “Thank you; that’s very sweet.”
CSP: “Everyone I was with said, ‘The girl isn’t good’ but I said, ‘Yes, she is!’”
THIS BOAT IS FULL OF BACK-HANDED COMPLIMENT MACHINES, Y’ALL.
There is a beach right next to the airport in St. Maarten and the planes fly so low, the humans on the beach are all like, “Shit, look how close that plane is to us!” over and over again. I think it has an official name but you can also just call it Airplane Beach. I had an excellent time swimming here despite almost voming in the cab ride from the port. St. Maarten cab drivers are all kinds of reckless, y’all. So anyways, I think I could live in St. Maarten and might start making arrangements. Can’t wait for you to visit!
Live from the Norwegian Getaway: Sunset on the deck and the view from the top of the boat! My bad, ship. We can’t call her a boat. This cruise ship gig has been a real rite ‘o passage (PUN MOTHER F’ING INTENDED) for me. Performing 14 shows a week, cold opening for a demographic ranging from 12-year old Canadians to retired Floridians and trying to keep it fresh for repeat customers has felt like comedy boot camp. And by the end of the week, you are no longer anonymous. People timidly approach you at the buffet to tell you how funny you are while you’re wolfing down pizza, beef empanadas and curry chicken salad. Side note, buffets are a beautiful gift for the indecisive diner. The gym is conveniently located on the same deck as the buffet so I like to get a good workout in then immediately consume back every calorie I burned and then some.
Anyways, two weeks down and two more to go…not that I’m counting. Okay, I’m definitely counting.

I am performing on this boat for four weeks. I’m contractually prohibited from seducing a lifeguard so with that plan thwarted, I will be doing a lot of reading, writing and premature aging.
You should all know the drill by now but if shit goes down, please make sure the CNN article mentions my zest for life, excellent baking skills and great rack. THX.
