The Comedy-O-Rama Hour
"Sgt. Lefty Joins The Mustang Club"
"My two characters really interact a lot in this week's show, so I did a lot of talking to myself!" 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.
"I even cooked beans over my kitchen stove while we recorded this week's story. When we were finished we had both a new hour radio situation comedy AND a pot of cooked beans!"
|Kenny Savoy & Joe Bev|
Meanwhile, Andy (Joe Bev) critiques Lkie's (Lorie Kellogg) and mud pies, and there is still a line of elder folks blocking the gates, demanding tickets to a "thingamabob".
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 improvises half the characters on the show.

|James Folly & Kenny Savoy|
"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!"
"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!"
"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."
"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 Program Director, Sonic Theater XM Satellite Radio
Joe Bevilacqua, also known as Joe Bev is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist. However, his career has taken him into every aspect of show business, including stage, film and television, as a producer, director, writer, actor, and even cartoonist. Not content to hide behind his microphone, Bevilacqua will be seen acting in the upcoming feature films: "The Green Blade Rises" directed A.J. Edwards, "The Fly Room" directed by Alexis Gambis, "Cold in July" directed by Jim Mickle, and "Hits" directed by David Cross.
Incredibly, Joe Bev currently acts on stage, TV and in movies, reports for NPR (All Things Considered, Weekend Edition, Latino USA), and still finds time to produce 36 unique hours of radio every month, 12 of which are underwritten by book publisher BearManor Media. They are The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, The Jazz-O-Rama Hour, The Joe Bev Experience, Cartoon Carnival, The Joe Bev Audio Theater, The Voice Actor Show, The J-OTR Show, The Lost OTR Show, and The Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention Celebrity Interviews (all of which are also hosted by Joe Bev), plus shows hosted by others: Lorie's Book Nook with Lorie Kellogg, Fred Frees Favorites with Fred Frees, What's Cookin'? with Chef Steve Mendoza, Aroma Thyme Radio with Chef Marcus Guiliano, and Movies on the Air with Bryan Hendrickson.
