Before his stint on "Saturday Night Live," Jim Breuer was a regular on the New York City comedy scene. But it was during his four year run on SNL, with characters like Goat Boy and Joe Pesci, that Breuer hit the national scene. After leaving the late night sketch comedy show, Breuer went on to star in the pot-fueled comedy Half Baked along with Dave Chappell along with numerous appearances on MTV. Jim was also able to once again focus on his stand-up comedy, including his special in 2002, Hardcore, in which he was backed by a rock band and produced one of the most popular pieces on B&T, the AC/DC Hokey Pokey. Jim, once known for his love of pot, is cleaning up his act and proving he's matured into both a father and an adult, something he talks about at length in his new bookI'm Not High.
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.
Scott Dunn is a stand-up comedian, a novelist, a father of two, and a husband of one. He's also a full-time history buff, and famous for his roasts of famous historical figures and events. He also occasionally calls in with History Lessons and Quizes, which means if you see his name on the guest board, you'd better start studying. In his spare time (when he's got any) he writes jokes for a number of shows including "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader." And that's a little bit about Scott Dunn.
