What happens if you put a passel of comedians, nerds and musicians on a boat? The JoCo Cruise Crazy should give us the answer. John Roderick is going to join Jonathan Coulton, John Hodgman, Wil Wheaton, Paul & Storm, Molly Lewis, Kevin Murphy & Bill Corbett, Mike Phirman and Paul F. Tompkins on this adventurous tour. The ship, the MS Eurodam, will depart from Ft. Lauderdale, FL on Sunday, January 2, 2011, cruising the Eastern Caribbean Sea for 6 days. There will be rambunctious comedy, lovely music, fruity cocktails, song and dance, and lustruous beards. You can book tickets and entertainment passes at the JoCoCruiseCrazy website.
Unfortunately Santa Roderick's magic sleigh isn't quick enough to get him from Seattle to New York within a day, so John had to cancel his appearance at the TIG Office Party on December 16. The good news is, John Vanderslice will be borrowing Santa's beard and take JRod's place instead.
Also, Steven Page's shows in Seattle (Nov. 30) and Portland (Dec. 1), for which John was slated to open, have been postponed. Needless to say, we will let you know if these shows will be rescheduled with John's participation.

While Seattle Weekly's Chris Kornelis is on paternity leave, John will be taking over as Reverb's Guest Editor for the next few weeks. According to John, he will provide his readers with "a nice selection of blog posts, some of which might contain a gram of truth, about music and whatever, plus some interviews and tangents of every sort." Chris suggests that if there is a topic you would like John to address, you can give him a gentle nudge via Twitter.
John scored yet another gig as Santa, this time at John Wesley Harding's Cabinet of Wonders on Friday, December 17 in NYC. Also on the guest list are A.C. Newman, John Hodgman, Gary Shteyngart, Ollabelle, and Eugene Mirman. Tickets are available at the City Winery.
