The Comedy-O-Rama Hour
"Marriage Fever Hits Camp Waterlogg"
The veteran award-winning radio producer, along with his merry band of voice actors, traverse the woods of Camp Waterlogg, his real-life rustic Catskills home, which doubles as the backdrop for the fictional kids camp.
It is all part of "The Comedy-O-Rama Hour" which premieres new shows every week.
The weekly hour is produced by veteran radio theater producer Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev). Bevilacqua maps out the plot of each hour and he and his cast improvise the dialogue and action, not from a studio but in the real world, including the woods of Napanoch, NY.
"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!"

Joe Bev himself voices Sgt. Lefty, Ellis the Boatkeeper, Lil Andy, Adam Maxwell, Woody, Sal Pilvers, and many others. More impressive is Bev's ability to play all these characters in one scene all at once, moving around the stereo landscape captured by his SONY IC Recorder.
"If I improvise Ellis and Lefty talking to each other, I might speak as Ellis on the left and as Sgt. Lefty on the right. This really completes the illusion that it is really two actors talking," reveals Bevilacqua.
"We have replaced recording radio theater in a cold studio, on a stationary microphone with a sound effect table with something more alive," adds Bev.
The result is a free-wheeling improvisational comedy that is also a sitcom and a radio theater.
On this week's Comedy-O-Rama, entitled "Marriage Fever Hits Camp Waterlogg," Sgt. Lefty and Olive Pitts plan for their wedding, which conflicts with the "elderly Dance & Raffle" being held by Sal Pilvers (Joe Bev). Meanwhile, Luigi (Kenny Savoy) and Marcello (Jim Folly) arrive at the dance two weeks early.
