IMPROV IN IRAQ "THE SEQUEL"
RINGS IN THE NEW YEAR

The Improv in Iraq ~ Comedy Tour returns to Kuwait and Iraq again, to Ring in the New Year for 2009.  Patriots Karri Turner (J.A.G.), Dave Price of CBS's The Early show and comedian Michael Hitchcock once again spent their New Year holiday entertaining the troops, as did newcomers Wendi McLendon and Jordan Black.


"I found this to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I feel so grateful to have had the chance to give back to the women and men sacrificing so much for our country." -  Jordan Black, Comedian

"Stars for Stripes should get an award for getting entertainment to places NO ONE will go!  Judy got us to some really remote camps again this year for our New Yr. tour.  I think it means so much to the "boots on the ground" that folks come to find them.  Watching our military giggle for an hour is about as good as it gets!" Karri Turner, Actress

"We throw around the word "hero" so much these days that many people have become desensitized to it.....I'm not though.  I've had the privilege of seeing real hero's, firsthand -  who demonstrate those precious virtues through service to our country day-in and day-out.  On tour, we're so often thanked for making the trip overseas when we might be home instead.  But it's my thank-you that's in order: To my extended military family - brothers and sisters - who, year after year, have helped me enjoy the true spirit of the holiday season in their company.  You make me proud."  Dave Price, CBS

"Any performer out there who’s on the fence about going to the middle east, JUST DO IT! I had the greatest time, and I always felt safe. It was the experience of a lifetime and I can’t wait to go back!"  Wendi McLendon-Covey, Actress / Comedian
