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.
Comedian Pat Dixon spends much of his time in New York City when he's not on the road performing. And while he's there, he often reads thew news. And being that he's a comedian, he can't help but have an opinion on the goings on in the world. And what better outlet for those stories, ripped from the headlines, than the BOB&TOM Show. In other news, Pat Dixon is has a brand new comedy CD titled, Goodbye Forever Fatty that is also now available on iTunes. Follow Pat on twitter and facebook and check out his new podcast, "The new York City Crime Report w/ Pat Dixon."
When comedian Greg Hahn takes the stage, he does so with an energetic, all-out style of physical humor, one-liners and crowd work like you've never seen before. And once he lets loose, there's no stopping him because Hahn doesn't have time for laughs, he's out to create immediate pandemonium and panic. Hahn can wear an audience out with his rapid-fire jokes and leave them holding their sides, trying to catch their breath. Greg is one of the most manic comedians to ever enter our studio, something that was only amplified when we sat him in front of a full drum set. You can hear a sample of that visit every time Chick plays his rimshot. Follow Greg on Facebook and twitter.
Though Ralph Harris has found success in both television and film, he continues to be on of the best touring stand-up comedians. "A Tonight Show" veteran and finalist on "Last Comic Standing," Harris isn't your typical stand-up comedian because he does much more than tell jokes on stage, he acts them out. He has appeared on the shows "Seinfeld," "In Living Color," "Living Single" and "Parenthood" just to name a few. Ralph's natural chameleon-like ability has helped him land a few roles in hit films like Dreamgirls and Evan Almighty. He was also the host of the show "My Momma Throws Down" on TV One. Follow Ralph on facebook and twitter.
When your father is not only a comedian but is also the owner of the world famous comedy club, The Comedy Store, there is a pretty good chance you're preordained for a life in the entertainment industry. For Pauly Shore that opportunity came in the early 90’s when he exploded onto the scene with a popular standup comedy act, a show on MTV, and starring roles in multiple blockbuster movies. To put it simply, Pauly Shore was everywhere. Then came the late 90’s, a period in which he was dubbed “The Dethroned King of dumb-ass comedy.” But this would not be the end of Mr. Shore. Instead, he fought back with the mockumentary Pauly Shore is Dead, and reinvented himself for a return to standup comedy. Speaking of comedy, check out his new special, "Pauly-tics" (watch the trailer). You can follow Pauly on twitter.
