"Attack of the Creepy Crawly Things from Outer Space" is based on a short story appearing in Bear ManorMedia book, It's That Time Again: The New Stories of Oldtime Radio volume 1. It is the first radio play to feature Honest Harold, from The Harold Peary show, which made its CBS debut on September 9, 1950.
Harold Peary was the creator and main performer for the show. Previously starring on The Great Gildersleeve, Peary took many of Gildy's characteristics along with him to his new Honest Harold character... the "dirty" laugh, singing songs, and closing dialogue over credits were all there with Harold. And that voice. Who could forget that voice? In simple terms, Peary couldn't or wouldn't sound and act differently enough to make listeners forget Gildy, and that made it very tough for the new show to fly. The show was about an older, unmarried guy, Honest Harold Hemp, who lived with his mother and nephew and did a radio homemaker's program. The townsfolk think of him as somewhat of a celebrity, but his girlfriend, Gloria, who works at the station, knows better.
The new radio play was produced and directed by Joe Bevilacqua, and performed by Bevilacqua and Lorie Kellogg.
On the next Joe Bev Audio Theater Halloween Spooktacular:
Joe Bevilacqua, also known as Joe Bev is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist, who has created thousands of hours of audio. However, his career has taken him into every aspect of show business, including stage, film and television, as a producer, director, writer, actor, and even cartoonist.
Not content to hide behind his microphone, Bevilacqua will be seen acting in the upcoming feature films: "The Green Blade Rises" directed A.J. Edwards, "The Fly Room" directed by Alexis Gambis, "Cold in July" directed by Jim Mickle, and "Hits" directed by David Cross. He will soon be portraying WWII British General Bernard Montgomery in the History Channel miniseries "The Wars"
Joe Bev can do hundreds of voices, dialects and impressions. For the upcoming movie "The Fly Room," he not only portrayed the on screen character of Uncle Dwight, he was personally commissioned by the director Alexis Gambis, to act as vocal coach to the cast during the entire shoot and wrote, produced and voiced a number of audio sound beds in the style of old time radio for use in the film.
