Joe Bevilacqua and Lorie Kellogg provide all the voices for this Saturday's Christmas Comedy-O-Rama Hour: "The Adoption of Andy," part 42 of their weekly "Camp Waterlogg serial.
Husband and wife duo also improvise all the dialogue, based on a predetermined scenario.
Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev) describes the process as similar to how Larry David creates "Curb Your Enthusiasm".
"More like Larry David Meets Edgar Bergen," says Bev, who (together with Lorie Kellogg) improvise all the voices in each hour, including Sgt. Lefty, Ellis the Boatkeeper, Adam Maxwell, Andy, Woody, Abner Bibberman, Olive Pitts, Elise, Mrs. Terwilliger, Lkie, Courtney and others.
In "The Adoption of Andy," Abner has kidnapped Andy just as he is about to live with his new dad Sgt. Lefty.
The hour also includes the Christmas fables "A Forced Christmas" and "The Little Christmas Star" by Pedro Pablo Sacristan, voiced by Kellogg and Bev.
Now in its 42th week on Cult Radio-A-Go-Go!
