COMEDY-O-RAMA: A Happy Camp Waterlogg Father's Day from Uncle Goopie


The Comedy-O-Rama Hour
A Happy Camp Waterlogg Father's Day 
from Uncle Goopie 


James Folly 
It's Father's Day Eve at Camp Waterlogg and the woman are out running errands, leaving the men to fend for themselves. Meanwhile, 47 fathers are locked in Buster's Bathhouse but only Ranger Joe has the key and he is running around the woods thinking he really is WWII British General Montgomery, who he plays on the History Channel.

Joe Bevilacqua and Lorie Kellogg provide all the voices, improvising half of the hour from their home and the surrounding woods of Napanoch, NY, and perform the Pedro's Fables: The Boy Who Almost Became Prince, Hammer Blows, and The Proud Parents, and Daws Butler's Uncle Dunkle and Donnie: Reddy Robin and the Owl.

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.


"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
In real life and in the fiction of the radio theater, Joe Bevilacqua (that's his full name) asks his actors to climb trees, run through the snow, dance by waterfalls, all while ad-libbing complicated story-lines and portraying multiple characters.

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.

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.
