Dwight Slade isn't just a comedian, he's also the voice of the little man, sticking it to 'the man' and scoring a little payback for all of life's daily humiliations. Slade began his comedy crusade in Portland, working with the legendary Bill Hicks, but has since made a name for himself headlining comedy clubs, hosting his own radio show and releasing a number of comedy albums, including his new double DVD, Right & Raunch. Dwight was the winner of the Boston Comedy Festival and is currently appearing in the movie “Rid Of Me” available for streaming on Netflix. Follow Dwight on twitter and facebook.
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.
