The Comedy-O-Rama Hour Camp Waterlogg: Olive and Lefty's Bollywood Wedding

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.
The Android version is at Waterlogg's site:http://waterlogg-productions.mobapp.at/
or the Google Play Storehttps://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Waterlogg+ProductionsThe iPhone version is at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/waterlogg-podcasts/id991623848.
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.

of Olive, Lkie, Mrs. Twilliger and others

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.

The Comedy-O-Rama is story and character driven improvisation--recorded in and around their Napanoch, NY house in the woods--that goes beyond sketch comedy to blossom into full fledged radio theater. Husband and wife creative team Joe Bev and Lorie Kellogg created the series for XM Radio in 2002. 124 shows and 13 years later, the series is heard weekly on public radio stations nationwide, streamed on the web at bearmanorradio.com, and podcast anytime all over the Internet, including waterlogg.com.

"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.

The Comedy-O-Rama Hour
Ranger Joe: Joe Bev (Joe Bevilacqua)
This week's improvised radio play, "Camp Waterlogg-A-Go-Go! The Bollywood Wedding of Lefty & Olive," Sal Pilvers (Joe Bev) ruins the wedding of Sgt. Lefty (Joe Bev) and Olive Pitts (Lorie Kellogg) by holding an "Elderly Dance & Raffle" in the barn at the same time.
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. 

Kenny Savoy the voice of Luigi and Stinky Peter
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.

Joe Bevilacqua, also known as Joe Bev, is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist, but 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. In 1971 his father bought him a cassette recorder, on which he created his first audio story, Willoughby and the Professor, acting all the voices himself at the age of twelve. In 1975 Daws Butler, the voice of Yogi Bear and many other Hanna-Barbera and Jay Ward cartoon characters, dubbed himself Bevilacqua’s personal mentor after hearing a 120-minute cassette of Willoughby improvisations. Since 1980 Bevilacqua has produced many award-winning radio programs for National Public Radio, Sirius-XM Satellite Radio, and others.
