If you missed this show, you missed a lot. Though Kristi started off the morning by insulting our good friend Henry Phillips in the green room, he still stuck around and played a few of his classic tunes. We also talked to Brian Regan, one of the most popular comedians in the country. And if that's not enough, we also got comedy ripped from the headlines with Pat Dixon and an all new Zany Report.
Brian Regan's blend of sophisticated writing and physical expression make him one of the most successful comedians in the business today. He has a deft ability to pinpoint the most specific situations and make them relatable to audiences that span generations. Regan has been featured on all the major late night talk shows as well as Showtime, Comedy Central and MTV. In fact, with his first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 1995, Brian solidified his place on the show and in 2012 he made his 25th appearance, the most of any comedian on the CBS show. His first CD has sold over 150,000 copies, and his past two DVDs have been bestsellers. You can get his new CD, All By Myself, on his website. Brian is currently on a nationwide tour, and if he comes to your town, he's a definite must see. Follow Brian on twitter. You can also catch him in an episode of Jerry Seinfeld's new online series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee"
Singer/songwriter and gifted guitar player Henry Phillips may be lonely and a self-professed loser, but he's also one of the most clever comedians on the planet. His songs often focus on the darker, more twisted side of life, but we still find his soft-spoken, self-deprecating personality quite adorable. Though his demeanor may lead you to believe otherwise, he's actually a fun guy to be around, especially if you enjoy gambling, drinking or gambling while drinking. In other news, Henry recently wrote and starred in the movie Punching the Clown, which can now be added to your queue on Netflix (click here to add) or purchased at Amazon.com. Follow Henry on twitter. You can also check out his new music video "He's Talkin' Again" and his new web series "Henry's Kitchen."
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."
