The Comedy-O-Rama Hour...
Olympics Fever Hits Camp Waterlogg


The creation of husband and wife team Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev) and Lorie Kellogg, The Comedy-O-Rama Hour is a wacky mix of family friendly humor, radio theater, audio cartoons and improvisation.

''We work very hard to keep the show clean,'' says Bev, who adds, ''That does not mean we can't be really funny!''

On this week's Comedy-O-Rama, the Camp Waterlogg gang are watching and commenting on the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremonies, the camp kids play cricket, grasshopper and frog Olympics, ants play soccer (football), and the continuing saga of the "Beluga Battles" / "Whale Wars" parody.

The hour will also feature a new "Willoughby and the Professor" cartoon written by Pedro Pablo Sacristan and voiced entirely by Joe Bev.

What Others Say about Comedy-O-Rama...

"The Comedy-O-Rama Hour is one of the most unique and original productions out there these days. With Joe's talent for different voices, I never know what's coming next, or what it will sound like. Another thing that makes these shows stand out is that it is quite obvious to the listener that Joe and his cast are having fun making these shows, and that makes them fun to listen to as well." (The New York Times)

"An atmosphere of folk art and sophisticated sound equipment merge to create radio theater of a distinctly upbeat, G-rated variety." (Deborah Medenbach, Times Herald-Record, Middletown, New York)

"Experimental, Humorous. The Comedy-O-Rama draws characters that everyone can relate to, just turned up a notch for chuckles. The production is slick and story engaging." (Tanya Ott, Vice President, Georgia Public Radio)

"Great parodies of old time radio icons, classic moments with legendary comedians and wonderful voice-acting, The Comedy O Rama Hour picks up where great radio comedy left off decades ago. Heck, it's even produced in the Borscht Belt." (Steve Karesh, former Sirius-XM Radio Program Director)

"If there was an award for best husband and wife narrating team, I think the clear winners would be Joe Bevilacqua and Lorie Kellogg. Come to think of it, why isn’t there an award for best husband and wife narrating team? Somebody needs to look into that. Anyway, individually, 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." (Steven Brandt,

The Bear: A Classic One-Act Play

The Joe Bev Experience is a weekly radio hour anthology series representing the depth and breath of Bev's 40-plus year career in audio storytelling, from documentary to radio drama, and new and classic installments of Bev's older radio show Cartoon Carnival (still heard on many stations).

First Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev) reads A Cosmopolite in a Café, a funny and quotable short story about a world traveler, bwritten by O. Henry. Few people are familiar with the name William Sydney Porter (1862-1910), but, just as many remember Mark Twain and not Samuel L. Clemens, Porter is well known by the pen name O. Henry. And O. Henry became known as a master of surprise, with witty short stories that trade on wordplay and surprise twist endings that have become standard fare in the century following his death.

Then, Bevilacqua's own characters, Willoughby and the Professor visit the Brazilian rain forest.

Last, will be The Bear, the classic one-act play by Anton Chekhov, produced, directed, and adapted by Joe Bevilacqua. Written in 1900, The Bear is one of the great works of Anton Chekhov, about the strange beginnings of love between the recently widowed Mrs. Popov and Grigory Stepanovich Smirnov. In Russian the word for "bear" which has two meanings: an animal or a rather rude, clumsy, awkward man. The play is alternately titled The Boor. The fine cast includes Cathi Tully, Bob Miller, and the late William Duff-Griffin.
