It's Election Day! But who wants to talk about politics, really? Instead we focused on something red and blue state folks can agree on, secret sex fantasies! We also got a visit from comedian Dave Dugan, and got calls from Costaki Economopoulos and Bob Zany.
Comedian Dave Dugan got his first national exposure with a couple of appearances on the Arsenio Hall Show and has since shown up a number of times on HBO and Comedy Central. Now he is one of the best corporate comedians in the country, customizing his clean, original comedy for every imaginable industry event. The son of a builder, Dave’s first job assignments were shoveling pea gravel and laying sod. Dugan discovered he was allergic to hard labor and immediately went on to ‘find something else.’ In addition to being a comedy veteran, Dave is also a voice actor and can be heard on national commercials that include Ford, Disney, Bass Pro, Edge Gel, and Troybuilt and as a voice heard weekly for NASCAR on the Speed Channel.
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.
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.
