Joe Bev Celebrates His 60th New Radio Theater of 2012-13 May 25 2:30 pm on CRAGG!

"Ellis' Coconut Bubble Troubles" airs Saturdays as part of The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block, which includes The Jazz-O-Rama Hour & The Joe Bev Experience, starting 2:30 pm ET, 1:30 CT, 11:30 PT on!

This Saturday, May 24th, The Comedy-O-Rama Hour presents "Ellis' Coconut Bubble Troubles". The new radio play is part of The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block, starting 2:30 pm ET / 11:30 am PT on

Sgt. Lefty, Ellis da Boatkeeper, Adam Maxwell, Lil Andy, Sal Pilvers, Cary Gooper, Gary Cant, Minnewaska Minnie are some of the crazy characters at Camp Waterlogg, a fictional dilapidated Catskills kids camp. Each week, all of these characters are played by one man: Joseph Bevilacqua (aka Joe Bev).

Joe Bev is celebrating his 60th new radio theater in nearly as many weeks, a feat it took Bev four years to accomplish while during his stint at Sirius XM. Bev's new surge of creativity is the result of an offer from Internet radio station Cult Radio A-Go-Go! in early 2012.

"First they asked me to do one radio hour per week. Then two and three," recalls the veteran actor-writer-producer-director, who now creates weekly The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block, which includes The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, The Jazz-O-Rama Hour & The Joe Bev Experience.

"It has been wonderful to have a place to play, to try out new ideas!" exclaims Bev, who co-creates Comedy-O-Rama with his wife Lorie Kellogg.

"Joe an Lorie are both extremely talented voice artists. They can both do lots of entertaining voices, not just characterizations but whole personalities, and they both have a fine flair for drama, satire, and comedy. Put them together and, well, need I say more? If you haven’t heard these two at work, you’re missing out on something special," wrote Stephen Brandt in an Audiobook Heaven review. 

On this Saturday's hour of audio madness, Ellis and Adam try to cook lunch to win back their gals, Elise and Aleta Mae (Lorie Kellogg) from Cary and Gary. Sgt. Lefty's mom is a pool shark dressed as tree, and a pair of racoons (Kenny Savoy) come to steal chickens.

Also featured on the hour will be the 8th installment of the first new "Lum and Abner" comedy since 1954, written and performed by Donnie Pitchford, who also draws the "Lum and Abner" comic strip appearing at in a "Sunday strip" format with a new installment each Sunday.
