I ‘ve been to 50 states, 7 Canadian provinces and 8 countries. All the stops have been enjoyable or I wouldn’t keep going back to all the towns, large or small.

The only city I have yet to visit in the entire continent is Boston. I might be banned there and not even know it. But then again, other fans tell me Boston is always the last to know about anything.

Below in the boxes are the top 5 towns I’ve most enjoyed:

Easily the most underrated sports town in America, these people love to laugh and are the best balanced for real life. They support their clubs deeply but winning and losing never gets in their way of a good time.

Should they win a Super Bowl or NBA title, I guarantee they will not riot in the streets. You’ll find them whooping it up at every pizza joint across town.

What won me over to the fans though, was seeing street corner scalpers at the Indians’ baseball games calling out that they had the best seats for Chicken Night!

2. KANSAS CITY

The fans have a reputation for being laid back but I’ve found them to be pleasingly nuts. Of all the big league cities, this town brings out the most families in attendance. They are a very loyal following who love a laugh fest when I visit for the Royals or the hockey Blades.

3. AMARILLO

These fans just bust a gut and cut loose Texas-style every time. Whenever I perform for their minor league team, the Dillas, it’s the closest thing to an Animal House party in the stands. They’re noisy fans in an old ballpark with a great sound system ~ an atmosphere that’s hard to beat.

4. EL PASO

Yes, El Paso! These are the happiest fans on earth. They have only minor league teams and college sports, but show them a good time and they will be back again and again.

I have performed for the Diablos baseball team, in the Texas League, more times than any other, for a total of 70 nights. Yet the huge crowds still laugh loudly at every joke (and at the right times, God bless them).

With my colors and antics, I think this border town sees me as a walking piƱata.

5. JACKSONVILLE

This is one happening city for good times. It can almost be considered San Diego east (except for the summer humidity). It’s a big navy town with plenty of beach, whose first major league franchise also came in football.

I’ve visited with fans there for baseball, college basketball and hockey over 25 years and there’s always been one constant–they come to laugh big time. Just like San Diego of the 70s, its growing fan base has a spirit to party at sports events, combined with a breezy, Florida charm that makes J’Ville a fun spot.
