Our interconnected world allows for new collaboration that previously wasn’t possible. Several entities have all been *extremely* friendly to Comedy Abroad, and we’d be remiss if we didn’t show them some love! Please check-out & support & the following organizations, companies, people, and media:
Travel Massive connects thousands of travel insiders to meet, learn and collaborate at free events all around the world. We are a global community of travel industry insiders, leaders, and innovators.
Sometimes the best experiences are the ones you’ve never heard of. The cacao tour run by an indigenous cooperative. The homestay in the Sacred Valley. The Afro-Panamanian food tour in Panama City, run by a local chef.
We’ve all heard the horror stories of “responsible travel.” A traveler is looking for an authentic experience in the country they visit, and is scammed into volunteering at a fake orphanage in Thailand, or is tricked into taking the “authentic” bus tour through a historic destination. The majority of the money from that tour goes to a large, sometimes foreign corporation, and the local community gains very little.
At Keteka, we leverage the global Peace Corps network in order to FIND, VALIDATE, & CONNECT unbelievable, unique and authentic experiences with travelers who are looking for something that is off of the beaten path, and goes beyond the conventional tourist experience.
MBar is the home of Comedy Abroad’s weekly show in Montreal. They’ve been awesome supporters of everything we do, and run a tight ship in the heart of Montreal.
We created Travindy to tell the stories of sustainable tourism. We’re now developing it as a social enterprise to help other people tell their sustainable tourism stories as well as possible.
Visit.org is a discovery and booking platform for immersive, impactful travel experiences hosted by do-good organizations around the world. 100% of hosts’ revenue is invested back into the local communities.
Our mission is to increase access to travel opportunities by enabling shared hospitality among trusted contacts and communities; providing free or cheap accommodation and cultural experiences not otherwise available. Enabling more people to venture outside the friendly confines of the their own country and experience an array of foreign cultures, will grow the community of those who realize we live privileged lives the majority of the world can only dream of. Those who experience the world are exponentially more likely to work on projects that improve society and raise the standard of living for those in poverty, rather than just maximizing income.
