The husband and wife team create a brand new hour of radio comedy every week, providing most of the character's voices, writing and improvising the story-lines and adding music and sound effects. This week's show also features Liquid Comedy's Cousin Kenny Savoy.
The Comedy-O-Rama Hour has been highest rated radio show on Cult Radio A-Go-Go! for many weeks. Joe Bev's other radio show, The Jazz-O-Rama Hour debuted last Saturday at number 2.
CRAGG creator-owners Terry & Tiffany Dufoe called Bev "the only host in CRAGG history to host two separate 60 minute shows at the same time!"

"We are creating a fully realized storyline every week, with continuing characters, sound effects, music, full production values... plus we're funny!" says Bev, who performs nearly half the characters on the show, including Ellis the Boatkeeper, Sgt. Lefty, Adam Maxwell, Lil Orphan Andy, and others.
