For the second morning in a row, comedian Ryan Dalton joined us in the studio to fill in for Bob, but this time he had a little help, We were also treated to another visit from Colts punter (kicker) Pat McAfee and the legendary Bob Zany. We found out some great inside into on the NFL, talked about holiday dating ideas, and the dangers of sex.
Number 1 on the field as the punter for the Colts, Pat McAfee is also number one in the hearts of sports fans in Indianapolis. Well, at least he's in the top 10. Drafted in 2009 out of West Virginia University, McAfee has not only been an important part of the Colts specials teams (and emergency QB if needed), he's also become one of the faces of the franchise off the field. Follow Pat on twitter. Check out the Pat McAfee Foundation.
A native of Cleveland, OH, Ryan Dalton discovered after graduating from college that the entertainment industry might be right for him because it was one of the few places where a basic lack of knowledge on any subject is not only necessary, but also embraced. He uses standup comedy as a way to poke fun at controversy and the “everyday personal injustices” that are dealt with by the common man. He also tries to defend the common woman whenever possible. Follow Ryan on facebook and twitter. Check out this April Fool's Day prank that a comedy club pulled on Ryan.
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.
