Wild Bill Bauer
Most comedians claim to have come from bizarre backgrounds, but Wild Bill Bauer was proof positive of what can happen when you grow up around unstable relatives. A brilliant writer with a unique and manic delivery, Bauer combined his outlandish observations and peculiar personal tales into a comedy act that was hilariously shocking and a lot like an episode of "Jerry Springer." Known to the BOB&TOM community as the guy with the uncle who plays Russian Roulette, Wild Bill Bauer was one of the few guest comedians that made an appearance on BOB&TOM's Greatest Hits Vol. 1 CD. Will Bill Bauer passed away on August 29, 2012.
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.
