For the most part, audiences only knew Kevin Pollak as one of Hollywood’s finest character actors, forgetting that he is also one the best standup comedians in the country. But that would all change when Kevin, performing as Christopher Walken, uttered the sentence, “Frankenstein never scared me; marsupials do, because they’re fast.” In that instant, he had created a catchphrase that would remain in our usage for years to come. This isn't meant to downplay his fine film work in movies like A Few Good Men, The Usual Suspects and The Whole Nine Yards, but we’re talking about a piece that remains among B&T's most requested bits. On that note, Kevin has created a new podcast called "Talkin Walken" in which he only speaks as Christopher Walken. It's already cracked the iTunes Top 10 Follow Kevin on twitter. You can also buy Kevin's new book How I Slept My Way to the Middle.
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.
