Hotels.com Teams Up With TV Personality Jonathan Van Ness For 10 Nights Of Cheeky Comedy And All-New Docu-Series
Leading travel website helps “Queer Eye” star slay his dreams with cross-country tour to culminate with brand’s first-ever ‘Hotels.comedy’ content series
Hotels.com®, the most rewarding way to book a place to stay, is partnering with “Queer Eye” star and fan fave, Jonathan Van Ness (JVN), to make his dreams of becoming a stand-up comedian a reality…Can you believe?! Last night officially kicked off his 10-night comedy tour in Brooklyn, with Hotels.com joining JVN as a partner and cheerleader on his journey to stardom.
To make sure fans don’t miss out on any of JVN’s fabulousness, Hotels.com is capturing it all from the road and will give audiences an intimate look as he branches out of his well-known role as a lovable and hilarious grooming expert to bring his brand of sassy, fierce humor to audiences across America. At the end of the tour, Hotels.com will release a docu-style web series titled “Hotels.comedy Presents: 10 Nights with Jonathan Van Ness,” giving fans a peek behind the curtain to see his process of self-discovery including the laughs, hotel room confessionals, delayed flights and everything in between that comes with life on the road.
“The team at Hotels.com is inspired by Jonathan’s relentless positivity. And we both share a passion for travel to meet new people and explore new places,” said Katie Junod, General Manager of the Hotels.com brand in North America. “He’s constantly encouraging others, so when Hotels.com heard Jonathan was trying to make it as a comedian, we wanted to return that support right back at him. Life on the road for a comic can be a grind, so we’ll be there to cheer him on along the way and, of course, make sure he’s able to rest his head (and those luscious locks!) each night in a fabulous hotel bed.”
Just as Hotels.com rewards its customers with a free* night after 10 nights stayed, the brand will celebrate Jonathan’s 10-night tour by rewarding 20 lucky fans and their guests with a chance to attend a special “Reward Night Premiere Party” with a screening of the first episode, hosted by JVN in New York City this November**.
“It’s the craziest thing! I get this phone call over the summer, and its Hotels.com saying they want to help with my dream to become a comic,” said Van Ness. “First off, I was so excited because Captain Obvious™ is my jam! That beard, honey. I mean, I love a man in uniform, but that facial hair is just beyond. Literally. On. Point. But for real, Hotels.com and Captain Obvious make me laugh all the time, so I was thrilled when they reached out to help take my fiercedom and show on the road. Obviously, they also know all the best places to stay, so I’m staying in style everywhere I go!”
The four-episode series, “Hotels.comedy Presents: 10 Nights with Jonathan Van Ness,” will premiere in November on the Hotels.com YouTube page and other media partners, with previews teased throughout the tour on JVN and Hotels.com social media channels.
