David Ossman as George Tirebiter on Comedy-O-Rama, Camp Waterlogg "Firesign Gets Waterlogged"
Veteran award-winning radio theater producer Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev) joins David Ossman on the latest edition of Comedy-O-Rama, just one of fifteen unique "Joe Bev" radio programs, heard on public radio stations nationwide and streamed online
The Comedy-O-Rama Hour
Camp Waterlogg: "Firesign Gets Waterlogged"
with special guest star David Ossman as George Tirebiter
Firesign Theatre's David Ossman joins Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev) and Lorie Kellogg for the latest edition of the weekly radio comedy theater hour.
In this brand new episode, Camp Waterlogg is in disarray since losing some of its staff, and Olive and Woody are AWOL, leaving Sgt. Lefty and a skeleton staff to clean up the mess! Enter George Tirebiter, Ranger Candidate Extraordinaire... to save the day?
Joe Bev portrays Sgt. Lefty, Ellis da Boatkeeper, Adam Maxwell, Woody, Cathy, and Andy, and other characters, as well as various announcers. Lorie Kellogg is heard as Olive Pitts, Elise, and Lkie, and other characters. George Tirebiter is played by David Ossman.
The Tirebiter "job interview" is heard in two parts, divided by Joe Bev performing all the characters in the Pedro Pablo Sacristan fable "The Two Spells" made in the style of Monty Python's Flying Circus.
The hour also includes Lorie Kellogg singing five songs from the "parody" album "Bob Dylan Does Mother Goose" (from the makers of the lethargically slow "real" album "Shadows in the Night" and "yet-to-be-made parody" album "Bob Dylan Sings Like Alfalfa as an Old Man").
Plus, more Professor Watchcamacallit's Intertitials with Fred Frees!
Producer-director Joe Bev(ilacqua)
