Harland Williams has a knack for playing memorable, out of the ordinary characters in films. He was the urine chugging cop in Dumb & Dumber, a prison bitch pot-head in Half Baked, a deranged hitchhiker in There’s Something About Mary and a cross dressing college student in Sorority Boys. What you may not know about Williams is that he’s also a hilarious stand-up comedian with an onstage persona that's every bit as bizarre as his movie roles. With an uniqe delivery, goofy facial expressions and whacked-out sense of humor, Harland has become a star on television, stage and screen but you can also find Harland's handy work in bookstores, but not in the aisle you may be thinking. He's the author and illustrator of a number of children's books including Likety Split and The Kid With Too Many Pets.
Dick Mango Live
Whenever a big event, major holiday, or get-together of any importance is approaching, we know we're soon to be visited by the one and only (thank god) Dick Mango and his band, The Dick Mango Trio. No bus station, airport terminal or lounge can resist his charm, his charisma or his plethora or totally original 'tunes.' Will everything run smoothly the next time he joins us on the air? If so, the next time that happens will be the first time.
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.
