Just a follow up here about Dean Gaines. We were fortunate enough to have Dean appearing at the Punchliner on my recent cruise on the Carnival Fantasy. I have not laughed that hard in many years. I literally laughed so much my ribs hurt the next day after both shows! I purposely sat a few rows back so I wouldn't get called out during the show for something. That didn't work and I still got called out for something, it was so funny.
It just so happened that I caught the aft elevator down from deck 9 and there was Dean and one of the musicians. He is the nicest person when off the stage as well. If you ever get a chance to see him at Carnival's Punchliner venue make sure to get there early. It will be packed!
