Actor, author, musician and all-around entertainer Gary Busey became a legitimate movie star in the hit film The Buddy Holly Story playing none other than Buddy Holly, for which he earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. Since then, he's starred in a few cinematic classics including Silver Bullet, Rookie of the Year, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Under Siege, and The Firm. While he does keep busy working on his book of "Buseyisms," he's currently promoting the new season of NBC's hit reality show, "The Celebrity Apprentice."
Comedienne Kathleen Madigan not only has one of the best live acts in the industry, she's also starred in her own HBO and Comedy Central standup specials, developed television pilots, reported for ESPN2, has appeared on "The Tonight Show" over ten times, won the American Comedy Award for “Best Female Club Comic,” starred on Lewis Black's "The Root of All Evil" and appeared on seasons one, two and four of NBC's "Last Comic Standing." But even if you didn't catch her on any of those shows, you can still order her hilarious new DVD, Gone Madigan. Follow Kathleen on facebook and twitter.
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.
Costaki Economopoulos is a comedian, true, but he's also a football fan. Those two factors alone make him the perfect candidate to give us a comedic look back at the NFL each week with his new feature that's also been picked up by The Huffington Post and Bleacher Report. With his Greek heritage, it's not surprising that he's been described as a “joke philosopher,” and we're sure he's not the only one saying that. Costaki is also a talented joke writer who's punchlines have been heard on "The Tonight Show," Showtime, BET, and MTV. Follow Costaki on facebook and twitter.
