Listeners will be treated to a new Abbott & Costello routine called "Luzon Station" and more when they tune in to The Comedy-O-Rama Hour this week. It is all part of this week's Camp Waterlogg-A-Go-Go segments, featuring special guest star Bob Greenberg.
The improvisational radio theater program is written by husband and wife Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev) and Lorie Kellogg and produced and directed by Bevilacqua.
During the comedy hour, Ranger Joe goes back in time to 1938 and meets Abbott & Costello--played by Bevilacqua and Greenberg, respectively, in sketches performed and recorded before a live audience.
"We tried to capture the high energy of 1938, a time before Abbott & Costello became top Hollywood stars but had just hit it big on the Kate Smith show and had their own show as a summer replacement for Fred Allen," says Joe Bev, who talks to himself playing not only Abbott but Ranger Joe, Sgt. Lefty, Ellis the Boat-keeper, and dozens of other characters on the show.
Upcoming Comedy-O-Rama guests include Phi Proctor (Firesign Theatre), Julie Newmar (Batman), Stuart Pankin (HBO's Not Necessarily the News), and Judy Tenuta (The Weird Al Show). Past guests have included Al Franken, Lewis Black, Shelley Berman, Rick Overton, and Bob Camp.
