It's a Great Day!
You know it is going to be a great day when Paul Thorn is scheduled to be on the BOB&TOM show. Thorn's an accomplished painter and singer/songwriter who also happens to be an ex-boxer, which means when he sings about whooping somebody's ass, he knows exactly what he's talking about. Though "It's a Great Day" has become a classic and is the "Stairway to Heaven" of Thorn's musical library, most of his tunes are much softer and soulful; many of which can be found on his new album Pimps and Preachers. Listen to Paul Thorn’s gospel inspired music and you'll end up either laughing or crying by the end of the song, maybe even a little of both. Paul Thorn fought middleweight Champ Roberto Duran on national television, has written songs with John Bon Jovi and Timothy B. Schmidt of the Eagles and lists skydiving as one of his favorite hobbies.
It's time for another exciting episode of the best joke filled, news feature hosted by a stand-up comedian named Bob Zany, The Zany Report. But the Report isn't the only thing you'll get when Bob calls in, we'll also find out where he's playing next, Bing Crosby will tell a joke, and some lucky fan will win prizes after fixing one Zany's less than successful punch lines. So you'd better tune it because it's going to be huge! In other news, Bob was recently featured in the Matt Damon film, The Informant! and is the star of the new documentary Close But No Cigar: Bob Zany which you can find here and pre-order the 2-DVD set here. Follow Bob on Facebook and twitter. Bob also has a new Podcast, "The Bob Zany Show" with Zan Aufdeerheide.
Costaki Economopoulos is a comedian, true, but he's also a football fan. Those two factors alone make him the perfect candidate to give us a comedic look back at the NFL each week with his new feature that's also been picked up by The Huffington Post and Bleacher Report. With his Greek heritage, it's not surprising that he's been described as a “joke philosopher,” and we're sure he's not the only one saying that. Costaki is also a talented joke writer who's punchlines have been heard on "The Tonight Show," Showtime, BET, and MTV. Follow Costaki on facebook and twitter.
