On this week's Comedy-O-Rama Hour, Sgt. Lefty (Joe Bev) and his girlfriend Olive Pitts (Lorie Kellogg) plan their Valentine's Day wedding, which will conflict with the Elderly Dance and Raffle run by Sal Pilvers (Joe Bev).
"Since we began our new Comedy-O-Rama shows last Valentine's Day, we thought we would celebrate our one year on Cult Radio-A-Go-Go! with a Valentine wedding!" laughs Bevilacqua, who maps out the plot of each hour and improvises the dialogue, not from a studio but in the real world, including the woods of Napanoch, NY.
Also on this week's Comedy-O-Rama, Jim Folly returns as Lil' Jimmy and Chef Ron Drysdale, who both have a run in with Stinky (Kenny Savoy) .
Meanwhile, Adam Maxwell (Joe Bev) has been arrested, and Andy (Joe Bev) and Lkie (Lorie Kellogg) get a lesson from from Sal Pilvers on how to sell tickets to the Elderly Dance and Raffle.
CULT RADIO A GO GO!
Joe Bev attributes the positive response to his radio show as a sign today's audiences are craving radio theater.
"We are creating a fully realized storyline every week, with continuing characters, sound effects, music, full production values... plus we're funny!" says Bev, who performs half the characters on the show.
Joe Bevilacqua and Lorie Kellogg are married and have been working together since they met in 1996. They recently toured with their Vaudeville in the Catskills stage show, in which they performed "Lambchops" the classic Burns and Allen comedy routine, and Bev MCd and performed the classic Abbott and Costello routine Who's On First? with Bob Greenberg. A second tour is planned for 2013 (TBA).

Bevilacqua says of his troupe:
|LATEST AIR TIMES:|
2:30 pm ET / 11:30 am PT
"Kenny is also a great improviser. When we toured as Liquid Comedy--after the rest of us struggled before the audience with parodies of current TV shows and juvenile dialogues--Kenny brought down the house by pulling out his harmonica and ad-libbing a hilarious and clever blues song. I can also count on Kenny as a close and trusted friend. I look forward to many more years of making people laugh with Kenny Savoy!"
"The script, which I completed... poured out of me because I was inspired. I was writing it to showcase the talents of Jim Folly, the funniest man alive!"
"Jim has been a member of Liquid Comedy since we formed it in 1979. Jim is Don Rickles, Chico Marx and Allen Jenkins all rolled into one!"
