Something 'Awful' coming to Cringe Humor Radio !
Cringe Humor Radio announces that The Awful Show will be joining the Cringe Humor Radio lineup, starting Friday, April 11, 2008.
The Awful Show brings a wealth of radio experience to the Cringe Humor line up. For almost two years the show has enjoyed success as a podcast, ranking them in the top 15 in iTunes’ comedy genre. They are also ranked in the top 5 on Microsoft Zune podcasts. All four members of the show have extensive radio credentials, including stints at highly rated radio stations around the country, college radio and even a NASCAR talk show.
“I often use the word ‘awful’ to describe my sense of humor,” explains Cringe Humor president, Patrick Milligan. “These guys have made a culture out of it. It’s always great to bring in people who aren’t afraid to make fun of everything, including themselves. They are a welcomed addition to an already proven line-up of radio programs.”
The Awful Show is headquartered in Reading, Penn., but two of the hosts are brought in live from different parts of the country. Although the cast is a tight knit crew, it’s important to point out that Tha Mike and Nerraux have only met Joel in person twice and Joel and Keyz have never met in person.
“I’m excited for what this means for the show,” says co-host Nerraux about joining the network. “Both in adding a better-quality live stream for our present listeners and the opportunity to expand to a greater audience.”
Already with a tremendous following, The Awful Show, is a fan friendly and loves interacting with listeners (commonly called the Bros and Hoes). They consider them their extended family. The show also has a rewards system called Awful Pennies for tasks that the audience does for the show.
“Since The Mediocre Show joined Cringe Humor I've been jealously listening to their flawless live audio stream,” says show host Tha Mike. “Now that we're finally getting the audio love we deserve, I'm proud of being part of an Awful Show broadcast on CringeHumor.net.”
“I consider this one of the greatest accomplishments we’ve had happen to the show thus far.”
About The Awful Show
The Awful Show basically started out as an idea in passing that avalanched into reality in a matter of days. In addition to the main show, the cast of The Awful Show individually records and releases their own weekly mini shows called “Awful Snacks.” A typical show usually consists of a recap of the casts weeks, birthdays, emails, vmails, Nerraux News, a weekly interview with the likes of Johnny Brennan (Jerky Boyz, Family Guy), Jimmy Pop from The Bloodhound Gang and Michael Winslow (Police Academy), to name a few.
The guys also play original weekly games against one another or with their audience called Screw Your Neighbor (SYN) or phone games Like Say It! or Price Check where they call anywhere from porn shops to Australian pet stores trying to get the clerks to say certain words or see who guesses closest to a price of an item.
