The Comedy-O-Rama Hour
Camp Waterlogg: Olive and Lefty's Bollywood Wedding
Since he was twelve, Joe Bev has been creating original radio theater, first from his childhood bedroom in Iselin, New Jersey.
Forty years later, Bev has defied fickle broadcasting trends and found a home for his audio theater on such radio stations as WBAI, WNYC, and networks such NPR and Sirius-XM, around the world via Internet radio, Audible, Amazon and Blackstone Audio.
Over the last three years, he has pulled out all the stops by writing, producing, directing, creating original sound effects, and voicing multiple characters in a weekly hour-long radio theater, The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, podcast at http://www.waterlogg.com and airing on public radio stations including Wisconsin Public Radio and Pawling Public Radio.

"Our characters really interact a lot in this week's show, so we did a lot of talking to ourselves!" 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.

Meanwhile, at the dance, Marcello (Jim Folly) and Luigi (Kenny Savoy) meet two women, both played by Stacy J. Negron-Sheckells, who joins the cast for the first time this week.

Olive meets a famous Indian magician Kutmar Kutmar (Joe Bev) who offers to give her a special honeymoon.
Lefty and Olive are married by recently ordained Ranger Lorie (Lorie Kellogg) in the religion of "Dudeism" (a reference to the movie "The Big Lebowski"). As they kiss, they disappear in a puff of smoke, to the shock of best man Ellis the Boatkeeper, guests Adam Maxwell, Woody, Lil Andy (all Joe Bev); Elise, Like, and Mrs. Terwilliger (all Lorie Kellogg).
Joe Bev began making up stories into a tape recorder when he was twelve in 1971. 44 years and hundreds of hours of radio broadcasting later, and he’s still creating unusual audio that defies categorization. Whether it is creating a half-hour radio play for XM Satellite Radio, documentaries, features or personal essays for National Public Radio, or performing on stage before a live audience, he has made a career out of imaginative storytelling in the best aural traditions of the past.
Lorie Kellogg is the co-producer. Kellogg started her education at the Kansas City Art Institute. There she studied painting, printmaking, photography, commercial design and video. She continued to Graduate School at the California Institute of the Arts where she received her MFA in Film/Video. Lorie is a graphic designer creating websites, logos, newsletters, newspaper & magazine layout, package design, ad design, and edits video & audio.
