For years comedian, songwriter and philosopher, Tim Wilson has been joining us on the air and in that time has treated us to a number of classic tunes such as My Brother In-Law, I Could Be Wrong and Church League Softball Fistfight. And though he's one of our most frequent guests, it's still an adventure every time he stops by, thanks in part to his uncanny ability to find a story to go along with any topic of conversation. But as a warning, if you're even talking to Tim, try to avoid mentioning The Bible, NASCAR, credit cards or Jimmy Carter. In other news, Tim turned author and wrote a book about serial killer Ted Bundy which is now on sale. Pick up your copy of Happy New Year - ted today.
Comedian John Evans is known for three things on the BOB&TOM Show. The first is his ability to scat along with any song (a talent that comes in handy more often than not), the second is his fondness for thrift stores and vintage clothing (which is how he got the nickname "High Plains Thrifter), and the third is his uncanny resemblance to cereal spokes-monster Count Chocula (according to Tom).
Scott Henry and his career as a stand-up comedian and actor was launched at the Montreal Comedy Festival in 2000.

Mike Birbiglia is not only a popular and successful stand-up comedian (currently on the "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend" tour), he's also the star of the one-man off-Broadway show "Sleepwalk With Me," the author of the book, “Sleepwalk With Me And Other Painfully True Stories,” and the writer, star and director of the new film Sleepwalk with Me which was based on his one-man-show, which was based on his life.

For longer than we can remember comedian Tim Bedore has been calling in or stopping by to deliver an editorial in which he talks about whatever happens to be on his mind. These musings can range from his relationship with his daughter, to hot topics in the news, and even updates on how the animal kingdom is waging war on mankind. From the Animal Conspiracy to his daughter Claire, Tim takes us inside his mind, and with the help of a few sound effects, puts together one of our favorite features. Follow Tim on Facebook.
