Anyone who has ever spent any time listening to the BOB&TOM show has no doubt heard a song by legendary comedian Heywood Banks. That’s because Heywood’s catalogue of classic tunes includes fan favorites like "Big Butter Jesus," "I Like Summer," "Toast," "18 Wheels on a Big Rig," "Punjab" and "Wiper Blades" just to name a few. In fact, Heywood has appeared on 36 of BOB&TOM’s comedy albums, more than any other artist by far. We’ve just been informed that Heywood may be adding to his already extensive list of songs when he visits us next. Now we’re just hoping he knows the lyrics. Check out Heywood in "GeoPirates."
If you overlook his brief stint as Magic Johnson's sidekick on the infamously awful late night talk show The Magic Hour, comedian Craig Shoemaker has enjoyed nothing but success. Since being named the American Comedy Awards "Standup Comic of the Year," Craig has been selling out comedy clubs across the country. Not only a standup comedian, Craig's put his skills to good use in a variety of other fields. He wrote, produced and starred in his very own award winning film based on his twisted alter ego, The Lovemaster. And believe it or not, he's also a best-selling author of children's books.
Side Note - If you see Craig Shoemaker walking down the street, make sure you stop him and say "Oh no Craig... that's not good for the show." He loves that!
