Nobody does it like Moon Palace!

IMG_3062

My Besties at the gorgeous Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in Cancun are stepping up their entertainment game.  Last year’s offerings included concerts by Jon Secada, Enrique Iglesias, and Usher.  They also hosted a Cirque show that I attended and loved–remember this?.  This year, the fun is kicking off with a laugh-out-loud performance by three former Saturday Night Live comedians–Jon Lovitz, Chris Kattan, and Tim Meadows.  It goes down this weekend.  There’s also a few nights in March where Air Supply will be performing.

I actually had the chance to talk a bit to Jon Lovitz last week.  Here’s what he had to say:

You were on SNL from 1985-1990.  What was your biggest takeaway from that experience?

Well, it completely changed my life.  I went from being broke and unknown to right and famous. 

About your Emmy nomination, how did you get the news and who was the first person that you called?

Wow!  I don’t think I remember the first one, but the 2nd one, I was hanging out with Dana Carvey and some other guys.  I told them and then I called my parents and the girl that I was dating.  I took my parents to the Emmy Show, and I remember being the the Green Room and saying, “Look, Dad!”  I pointed out people like George Burns and Lucille Ball in the room with us.

When did you first realize that you were funny and wanted to make people laugh?

Well, I remember when I was about 5, seeing a friend make people laugh and wanting to make people laugh like he did.  Then, when I was about 13, I saw Woody Allen’s Take the Money and Run and remember saying, “THAT is what I want to do!”

By the way, Moon Palace is bringing Cirque Dreams Rocks in this summer for a run.  It features daring aerialists, gravity defying balancers, powerful strongmen and an array of edgy, awe-inspiring acts. Looking for summer vacay ideas for the family?  I HIGHLY recommend Moon Palace–I fell in love with the place last year!
