The Comedy-O-Rama Hour
Bob Newhart Special
Camp Waterlogg Says "Hi, Bob!"
"Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on." -- Bob Newhart
It is all part of the next Comedy-O-Rama Hour, a show that began on XM Radio and has since spread around the world, via public radio, streaming stations and podcasts.
This week's show, entitled: Camp Waterlogg Says, "H, Bob!" has everyone at the camp buying scalped tickets to see Bob Newhart, sold by Sal Pilvers (Joe Bev). Ranger Joe and Ranger Lorie are expecting to interview Bob before his May 16 performance at the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater in Peekskill, NY.
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.

Some of Joe Bev's character voices are inspired by Newhart contemporaries Don Adams, Phil Silvers, Jackie Gleason, and Jonathan Winters.
The couple create this surreal improvisational sitcom every week, and their real life two
