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.
The Case of the Funny Detective
In order to be named the Worlds Funniest Cop you not only have to be really funny, you also have to be a cop. Luckily for Dan Whitehurst, he was both. Originally, Whitehurst used his humor to defuse tense situations while on the job, but after he successfully tried out his act on stage during an open mic night, he began moonlighting as a stand-up comedian. For awhile he was able to be both a detective and a comedian; he even won Nashville' s Detective of the Year Award. But after awhile, his comedic side won out and he decided to head into stand-up full time
Though he was named one of the "Top 10 Comedians" to watch by Entertainment Weekly, you really don't have much of a choice as Pete Correale is popping up all over the place. Along with his upcoming guest spot on Late Night with David Letterman, Correale is also aTonight Show veteran, has appeared on Last Call with Carson Daly and Premium Blendand recently starred in his won Comedy Central Special "The Things We Do For Love." Correale began his career mopping up comedy clubs to earn stage time in NYC, and has since gone on to become a national headliner and writer for shows on MTV and Comedy Central.
