On this Saturday's original improvisational radio theater comedy hour, local newsman Sal Pilfer broadcasts live from Camp Waterlogg trying to show the after-effects of Hurricane Sandy. Only SGT. Lefty, Olive Pitts and the gang are coping just fine without electricity for five days.
Husband and wife team Joe Bev and Kellogg not only produce, direct and write the weekly comedy hour, they improvised all the character's voices, from their rustic home in the woods of Napanoch, New York, including the radio cartoons: "The Cloud Squeezer" and "Rain Drop, Snowflake" by Pedro Pablo Sacristan.
Bev and Kellogg have been working together since they met in 1996. They recently toured with their Vaudeville in the Catskills stage show, in which they performed "Lambchops" the classic Burns and Allen comedy routine, and Bev MCd and performed the classic Abbott and Costello routine Who's On First? with Bob Greenberg. A second tour is planned for February and March 2013 (TBA).
Now in its 37th week on Cult Radio-A-Go-Go!
