I just wrapped my third tour for the American troops stationed overseas on Naval bases. April 2016 brought me to Europe. November 2016 brought me to the Middle East and Africa.
This April 2017 I navigated four countries across Asia: Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Guam.
The tour, once again organized by Navy Entertainment and facilitated by my agency Neon Entertainment, was a terrific success. April is the Month of the Military Child, dedicated to honoring and recognized the kids of military families.
Consisting of 9 shows and spanning nearly three weeks, I started the tour in mainland Japan at Yokosuka (pronounced Ya-koh-skah). From there I went to Atsugi, and then Tokyo. The cherry blossoms were still in bloom, and they were incredible.
From Tokyo I flew to Nagasaki for a quick 22 hour appearance and a show, which happened to be on Easter Sunday.
The next day I flew to Okinawa, which is, for many people, the homeland of Mr. Miyagi from The Karate Kid. Sadly, none of The Karate Kid movies were actually filmed there.
Show No. 6 took place in Korea and, yes, I was there right in the middle of all the major international conflict reported by the American media. It was definitely a bit tense, and the magic show was much appreciated by all.
On to Singapore for the 7th show, another stop with less than 24 hours to spare. The only outdoor show of the tour, it was about a million degrees and very humid. I managed through it and received rave reviews the following day.
From there I flew a very long way to Guam for the final two shows of the tour and, in spite of the fact that in rained the entire time, enjoyed the island.

The playlist below contains the entire tour in order, in case you feel like watching all 8 videos back-to-back as a documentary.
It was a truly incredible experience full of awesome locations, wonderful people, and terrific shows for the most appreciative audiences anywhere in the world. Thank you to the American troops and their families for their sacrifice and service to our country.
