The Comedy-O-Rama Hour is story- and character-driven improvisation that goes beyond sketch comedy to blossom into full-fledged radio theater. Recorded in and around husband-and-wife creative team Joe Bev and Lorie Kellogg’s Napanoch, New York, house in the woods, the series first aired on XM Radio in 2002. More than 120 shows and thirteen years later, the series is heard weekly on public radio stations nationwide, streamed on the web at bearmanormedia.com, and podcast anytime all over the Internet, including on Waterlogg.com.
Joe Bev says, “We have been doing most these characters for more than twelve years now and some I have been voicing for more than forty years. We no longer have to write what we want to say. The Comedy-O-Rama Hour has also evolved from a scripted to a fully improvised hour of radio theater.”

“The Comedy-O-Rama Hour is one of the most unique and original productions out there these days. With Joe’s talent for different voices, I never know what’s coming next, or what it will sound like. Another thing that makes these shows stand out is that it is quite obvious to the listener that Joe and his cast are having fun making these shows, and that makes them fun to listen to as well. 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.”
