Last night Amy Schumer v The Big Banana Car


This might be a bit long but I hope my friends and fans of The Big Banana Car will enjoy it.  Shop girl Emily has been talking about the Amy Schumer show for the last couple of weeks, saying it would be great to give a B Car ride. Attempts to contact Amy’s people on social media were unanswered. She told me yesterday, the day of the show, that she wanted to take the banana car to the show to see if anything happens. I told her go for it.  I was not interested and had decided to stay home. But she sent me a text at 7:30 and said she had a ticket for me. I found the motivation to get to Wings Stadium. Emily had gotten last minute tickets in the 4th row center!

Amy begins her act. Emily has a neon yellow sign that she holds up to get Amy’s attention and ask her to ride in the Big Banana Car. When the star mentions the Banana Car into the microphone the crowd cheered. I had tears in my eyes!  In the 3 years we have had The Big Banana Car in Kalamazoo I have never felt so supported. We were disappointed, however, that Miss Schumer declined our invitation. We hope that someday she may reconsider!


I have heard so many great things people have said about the Banana Car but, the cheers from the large crowd last night was by far the best acknowledgment we have ever received!  THANK YOU KALAMAZOO!  And a huge thanks goes to Shopgirl.  She was determined to have fun, and she knew it would be good exposure for us.  I am very impressed with her tenacity and willingness to be a target of a jokes.  We are glad to have her on board.

Thank you,

The good folks in Fulton, KY and E Fulton, TN invited us down to be a part of the Fulton Banana Festival in September. It was such an honor and so much fun! We enjoyed a car show, awesome music concerts, a parade, food and most of all the wonderful people we met. And yes, that is a HUGE vat of banana pudding in front of the Banana Festival Queen!

Seasons are changing!


The weather is getting a bit brisk, BUT there is still time to take that ride your kids have been asking for! After school “Banana Car Pick-Ups” are a favorite of children of all ages. We can be scheduled for birthday parties, school events, or just a jaunt around the city.

Adults also dig The Big Banana Car! It is a perfect compliment to Ladies Night Out, Bachelorette/Bachelor parties, weddings, anniversaries, etc. You think of an event, we can probably do it!

Don’t delay! Schedule your experience now before it gets too cold! The Big Banana flies west for the winter.
