You know when Tim Wilson takes over the studio, it's not going to be business as usual. After playing a few of his Christmas classics, Tim stuck around to talk famous cousins, single guy apartments and cigarette jingles. We also got an NFL update from Costaki and a visit from writer/producer Judd Apatow.
For years comedian, songwriter and philosopher, Tim Wilson has been joining us on the air and in that time has treated us to a number of classic tunes such as My Brother In-Law, I Could Be Wrong and Church League Softball Fistfight. And though he's one of our most frequent guests, it's still an adventure every time he stops by, thanks in part to his uncanny ability to find a story to go along with any topic of conversation. But as a warning, if you're even talking to Tim, try to avoid mentioning The Bible, NASCAR, credit cards or Jimmy Carter. Along with writing comedy tunes, Tim is also author having written a book, Happy New Year - ted, about serial killer Ted Bundy. He's also just released a new digital album available for download at Amazon called Caffeine, Wired, Nervous and Pale.
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.
From his beginnings on television cult classics like "The Ben Stiller Show" and "Freaks and Geeks," Judd Apatow has become one of the most popular writers/producers in Hollywood. Since turning his attention to the big screen, Apatow became the man behind some of the biggest comedy hits of the past decade including Anchorman, Talladega Nights, and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. His newest film, This is 40 is a semi-sequel to one of his biggest comedy hits, Knocked Up. This is 40 stars Paul Rudd and opens in theaters everywhere this December. Follow Judd on twitter.
