Go Away With … Dan Lauria

Though Dan Lauria has traveled to numerous destinations, the actor said he has never taken a proper holiday. “I’ve never taken a vacation,” says Lauria, who is best known for playing Fred Savage’s father on “The Wonder Years.” “I’ve never been to Europe. Every time I planned to do something big, I got a job and I could never pass that up.”

Go Away With … Jamie Kennedy

Comedian Jamie Kennedy is used to getting laughs in the United States, thanks to his work in the “Scream” films and his TV show “The Jamie Kennedy Experiment.” But making foreign audiences laugh wasn’t something he felt confident he could accomplish. That is, until he went to the Philippines. “It was amazing to see that the 5,000 people in the audience not only understood exactly what I was saying, but they also got my humor,” says Kennedy, 38. “Clearly they were all smarter than I am. I can barely speak one language much less two.”
