The Comedy-O-Rama Hour
The Wedding of Ellis & Elise part 1
This week, the first in a trilogy storyline will culminate with comedienne The Love Goddess Judy Tenuta guest starring. Joe Bevilacqua, who is also known as Joe Bev, performs nearly half the characters on the show, including Ellis da Boatkeeper, Sgt. Lefty, Adam Maxwell, Lil Andy, and others. His wife and creative partner Lorie B. Kellogg also performs many characters on the show, including Elise, Olive Pitts, Mrs. Cowlick, Ellis & Elise's mother, Lkie, and others.
The husband and wife team record the comedy hour from their home and surrounding woods of Napanoch, NY. The show takes place at Camp Waterlogg, a fictional kids camp in the Catskills. For the trilogy, Bev and Kellogg enlisted the help of Kenny Savoy and Jim Folly, members of the Liquid Comedy troupe since 1979.
For this new set of shows, the four spent one weekend improvising many hours of new material for The Comedy-O-Rama Hour. Folly plays chef Ron Drysdale, a Peters Market Grocery Clerk, Rev. Cowlick, Marcello, Ellis & Elise's father and Lil Jimmy. Savoy is Cousin Kenny, Peter Moss, and Luigi.
Bev and Kellogg Skyped two scenes with Judy Tentua, one in which she gives love advise to Ellis and Elise, and the other in which Tentua sings and plays accordion at their wedding, which will be heard in the third part.
Joe Bev says of his cast:
Lorie Kellogg is not only a great voice artist who can play woman, man, girls, boys, frogs, trees, chairs, or anything... she also comes up with half the funny plots we improvise!
Jim Folly is the funniest man alive! Jim has been a member of our troupe Liquid Comedy since we formed it in 1979. Jim is Don Rickles, Chico Marx and Allen Jenkins all rolled into one!
Kenny Savoy can do voices and read a script as well as any actor I know, but what makes Kenny special is is bright open upbeat personality. He lifts the energy of everyone he meets. Kenny is also a great improviser.

My Dinner at Baker Street
Episode 2 of The Misadventures of Sherlock Holmes
Comedy and mystery are happy bedfellows in The Misadventures of Sherlock Holmes. Veteran award-winning radio producer Joe Bevilacqua’s ten-part radio theater series pays humorous homage to the classic characters of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The stories are filled with sly references to the original “Canon,” and even the Baker Street Irregulars and other Holmesian groups and scholars have enjoyed this about the series. In this episode, Watson unknowingly invites Holmes arch enemy Professor Moriarty to dinner.
