The Comedy-O-Rama Hour
A Camp Waterlogg Valentine Revisited part 1
What Others Say about Comedy-O-Rama...
"The Comedy-O-Rama Hour is one of the most unique and original productions out there these days. With Joe's talent for different voices, I never know what's coming next, or what it will sound like. Another thing that makes these shows stand out is that it is quite obvious to the listener that Joe and his cast are having fun making these shows, and that makes them fun to listen to as well." (The New York Times)
"An atmosphere of folk art and sophisticated sound equipment merge to create radio theater of a distinctly upbeat, G-rated variety." (Deborah Medenbach, Times Herald-Record, Middletown, New York)
"Experimental, Humorous. The Comedy-O-Rama draws characters that everyone can relate to, just turned up a notch for chuckles. The production is slick and story engaging. (Tanya Ott, Vice President, Georgia Public Radio)
"Great parodies of old time radio icons, classic moments with legendary comedians and wonderful voice-acting, The Comedy O Rama Hour picks up where great radio comedy left off decades ago. Heck, it's even produced in the Borscht Belt." (Steve Karesh, former Sirius-XM Radio Program Director)
"If there was an award for best husband and wife narrating team, I think the clear winners would be Joe Bevilacqua and Lorie Kellogg. Come to think of it, why isn’t there an award for best husband and wife narrating team? Somebody needs to look into that. Anyway, individually, Joe an Lorie are both extremely talented voice artists. They can both do lots of entertaining voices, not just characterizations but whole personalities, and they both have a fine flair for drama, satire, and comedy. Put them together and, well, need I say more? If you haven’t heard these two at work, you’re missing out on something special." (Steven Brandt, audiobook-heaven.com)

Cupid Comes to Camp Waterlogg
The British Universities Film & Video Council called "a modernization of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Ranger Lorie is having a big Valentine's "Kiss-Off" square dance to help raise money to save her dilapidated kids camp in the Catskills. Cupid sends the Baby of the Woods (Puck) to bring all the star-crossed lovers together, and confusion ensues. Meanwhile, Ranger Joe (Bottom) makes an ass of himself, while performing in Las Vegas." The hour also includes Cousin Kenny Savoy, Jim Folly, Tom Giannazzo, and Reagan Leonard.
