Maryellen Hooper is a top notch comedian, one of the funniest
stand-up artists on the circuit right now.
I play her on the show because she really makes me laugh.
Her material is based on the average, everyday lives we
all lead…frustration, love, families it’s all there.
This is a nice one about her husband’s tool fixation…
I hope she puts out more recordings, I’ll play them!
Amateur Transplants is the name of a London based comedy duo
that is comprised of Adam Kay and Dr. Suman Biswas.
They specialize in humorous song parodies in the vein of
Tom Lehrer but with a tad more profanity.
This is a clever little piece on…drugs!
More to come!
There are those that say that the Simpsons are no longer funny
or relevant, to that I say…Watch This!
Mike Baldwin is a really good stand-up comedian that I’m
giving some serious air time to.
Laid back, not too profane and very funny make for a good time.
Here he is talking about friends, cops and stupidity…
More to come!
Alfred Hawthorne Hill, Also known as Benny Hill, was a
very funny fellow indeed.
His long running television show was the stuff of legend.
Known for its beautiful women, bawdy humor and silly, but
very funny sketches, it ran from 1955 to 1991 in various
Here’s a good example of what you could expect to see…
I loved watching his show when I was younger!
Jacob Rodney Cohen!
The life of the late, great Rodney Dangerfield is one of legend.
He certainly had his ups and down but overall he created some
classic stand-up comedy, one liners that will live on for ages.
He was doing well, then couldn’t find work during the sixties.
Then he hit it big again…Movies, HBO Specials, more movies.
Not bad when you consider that he was so deep in debt in the
1960s that he was forced to sell aluminum siding for a living.
He performed his craft for over 40 years until his death in
2004, his headstone says
“Rodney Dangerfield…There Goes the Neighborhood”
He got respect.
I still get requests for him on the show!
This is a great scene from one of the funniest movies ever
made…The Life of Brian!
Graham Chapman, John Cleese and the superb Michael Palin are
wonderful in this classic sketch.
What was his wife’s name again…?
The late, great Tracy Thielen, lead vocalist and chief song
writer for Ace T and the Hindenburg Ground Crew, was a
very talented man.
His group is noted for some superb comedic pieces like
Kitty Mambo, Crazy and a multitude of others…cuts that
I am happy as Hades to play on the show.
This cut is a dark and depressing little song, but not without
a sense of humor, a theme that Tracy embraced in a lot of his
work…Pistol To Me!
I’ll post some of his funnier stuff in the future, albeit
in a fan tribute format as nothing of his was produced in
Anthony Griffith is one of those rare comedians that don’t
feel the need to be crude or use profanity in his act.
Don’t get me wrong, there are many good stand-up folks that
are funny and turn the air blue while on stage, but it does
take talent to be an observational comedian AND be hilarious.
Being the host of a radio based comedy show I can appreciate
it when I find a funny individual that I don’t have to edit!
Having said that Mr. Griffith is a very entertaining man
and I will continue to promote and give him air time as long
as he makes me laugh.
Here he is talking about…what to say, and when.
The late greats Peter Cook and Dudley Moore were once
television stars, hosting their own BBC show in the 60s.
“Not Only…but Also” aired for a few years and produced some
memorable sketches, the kind that can be enjoyed in both
audio and video forms, great material for Comedy 101 Radio.
Here’s a good one with Dudley as the interviewer and Peter
Way ahead of it’s time!
