Summary

Now available in one collection for you to enjoy!

Long before Sgt. Lefty and the Camp Waterlogg gang took over, The Comedy-O-Rama Hour residents were parody versions of Mysteries (Sherlock Holmes), Old-time Radio (The Shadow, The Lone Ranger, etc.), SCI-FI (Willoughby and the Professor), Superheroes (Teaman and Polfroon), and more.

“Those were the XM years,” explains Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev), who not only produced Comedy-O-Rama, but also wrote and voiced 80% of the productions, which aired four years on XM Satellite Radio.

Joe Bev, explains, “The idea started in 1996 as a website paying tribute to old-time comedians. When XM Program Direct Steve Karesh asked me to turn the website into a weekly radio show, I wrote many hours of radio theater, complete with sound effects and music. Many others contributed and ended up making 60 hours worth!”

The original scripted Comedy-O-Rama came to a conclusion in 2008, a victim of the SiriusXM merger. During the show’s hiatus, Joe Bev created a number of other successful radio shows, including The Jazz-O-Rama Hour, The Joe Bev Experience, Cartoon Carnival, and The Joe Bev Audio Theater, all still produced and running today on many radio stations, as well as podcasts.

In 2012, Joe Bev revamped The Comedy-O-Rama Hour as an totally improvised radio theater experience involving the fictional Camp Waterlogg. Over 70 hours of those have since been produced, and all are available, under separate titles, from Blackstone Audio.

Review Quotes

“Great parodies of old-time radio icons, classic moments with legendary comedians, and wonderful voice acting, The Comedy-O-Rama Hour picks up where great radio comedy left off decades ago. Heck, it’s even produced in the Borscht Belt.”

Steve Karesh, Program Director, Sirius-XM Satellite Radio

“Are you a fan of old-time radio? Do you wish they were still making those wonderful programs so you wouldn’t have to keep listening to the same old episodes again and again? Do you poop out at parties? Do you wish I would stop asking so many questions? Well wish no more, o traveler of the airwaves. From Joe Bevilacqua and his Waterlogg Productions, the vita-veeta-vegemin of old-time radio, comes this echo from a bygone era.”

Steven Brandt, Audio Book Heaven

“For most artists working in radio theater, the projects tend to be group efforts, with actors, a producer and director, writers, engineers, and sound effects personal. But Joe Bevilacqua is producing a successful radio theater series almost single-handedly. The great part about radio theater is you can portray ‘any subject in any location in any circumstance, from another part of the world to the past to another dimension. You can create a whole world unto itself.’”

Amy Hersh, Backstage
