Highly recommended.

The Amazing Pink Things
An interesting quartet of mirth and merriment,
the Amazing Pink Things are no are no longer with
us but their humor most definitely lives on!
A novelty/comedy singing group that made their
mark in the 80s and 90s, they are a great source
of zany songs done in harmony.
Dana Countryman, the Blonde Guy, keeps them alive.

The Amoeba People
This is one interesting band. Lively, great lyrics and very funny!
Entertainment for young and old.
I highly recommend them.

Fly Amero
A very talented performer, strong in blues, guitar and balladry.
I include this artist for the hilarious Christmas material he has done.
The ballad of “Frank Jones” is classic stuff.

Cy Amundson
I am very impressed with this talented stand-up comedian! Cy is a gifted story teller that paints a great picture, the imagery just flows when he starts to tell one of his jokes.
His is a fresh approach to the craft, I’ve never heard anyone quite like him. His Biker Bar and Charlie stories are classics in the making. Superb stuff!

Rachel Arieff
Rachel is a saucy, bawdy, and talented songstress with a great sense of humor.
Her CD cover photo alone is worth the price of admission.
For some strange reason I now aspire to be a piano stool.
A welcome addition to C-101R.

Mike Armstrong
Mike has material that will make you cry it’s so funny.
He’s an ex-cop with a superb sense of humor.
One of the better stand-up comedians on the circuit.
This is the place to check him out.

Riley Armstrong
I am very pleasantly surprised by this talented Canadian!
Riley has some superb songs out that are quite humorous.
The sound quality is top notch, lyrics are great and the
performances are very unique and entertaining.
His bio indicates that he is a Christian based performer
but he doesn’t preach and you’d never know it from his material.
He is just GOOD, that’s it! Highly recommended…

Arrogant Worms
Canada’s wacky musical trio. I really like this group.
You can tell that they have fun doing this stuff.
You’ll laugh out loud at these guys.

Asylum Street Spankers
No longer together but will certainly live on in the minds of everyone
who appreciates great musicianship, superb chemistry and a wicked
sense of humor!
This is their Bandcamp offerings, great stuff all!

Austin Lounge Lizards
A great bluegrass band with a keen sense of humor.
“Grandpa’s hologram”, “Jesus loves me (but he can’t stand you)” and “The Purple People Eater”
are just a few of the funny songs that they do.
Worth checking out.

Heywood Banks
A good homepage for a true comedic talent.
It’s got all the info on a very funny man.
One of a kind.

Bill Mumy with Barnes and Barnes
Bill Mumy is a multi talented individual that certainly has my respect!
Actor (Lost in Space, Twilight Zone, Babylon 5, etc;), musician and all
around good guy, he is one half of Barnes and Barnes, a novelty act that
I love to play on the show.
If you look closely the Barnes and Barnes link is there, check them out!

Todd Barry
A stand-up comedian that brings sarcasm to a whole new level. Laid back, sharp tongued and humorous.

Ivor Biggun
His website has changed but he’s still with us!
Ivor has been a British comedy source of bawdy humor for many years
and has a good following, myself included.
This is a good place for all things Ivor.

Billy Dare and the Pumps
New Hampshire’s own Billy Dare and the Pumps.
A very fun and campy band.
The “Baseball song” is a hit (pun intended).

Mike Birbiglia
This is a very good stand-up comedian.
A fresh, funny, yet low key act that really entertains.
One of the better ones.

Dave Blackledge
A funny man, and as his website says “The guy ain’t right”.
Finding funny out of the darker side of life is his forte’.

Bob and Ray
A great place to get Bob and Ray recordings.
You can hear hours of material on RA or purchase it right here.

Alonzo Bodden
I like this man, a very good comedian is he.
Listen and laugh. Repeat.

Barry and the Bookbinders
Barry Bookbinder, funny man extraordinaire, is the talent behind this very humorous act.
Okay, he’s also a lawyer, but don’t hold that against him.
The production values and overall humor of his CD is top notch.
A great buy if you like funny songs, and a great sketch or two.

Bolivian Sunshine Dogs
The Bolivian Sunshine Dogs are a UK based band that love novelty songs!
They play the greats like Monty Python, Neil Innes, Tom Lehrer and more!
In some cases they add a touch of their own flavor to make it special.
I love to play these folks on the show.

Bowser and Blue
A very funny Canadian comedy duo.
They play a good guitar while singing hilarious adult tunes.
Best known for “Polka Dot Undies”, The “Normal Song” and many more.
I like them a lot.

Like his site says “Boymongoose is an Indian Christmas pop star who excels in comedic
remakes of all the classic Christmas Carols.”
He’s kind of funny actually, not bad at all.
Here he is.

Ken Boynton
A principal member of Synaptic Anarchy Playhouse. Unfortunately they no longer exist but the spirit of that very funny group lives on in this man.
He has, among his many offerings, a musical novelty CD that is very entertaining.
You can check out his material here.

Chuck Brodsky
A great folk singer with a distinctive and entertaining voice.
Like most good “folkies” he has put out a comedy piece or two.
“Hockey fight song” and “Blow ’em away” are very good songs worthy of airplay on C-101.
Look here to find out more.

Paul Bullock
Under the alter ego of Manfred C. Balzac, Paul has released a CD called Manfred’s Midnight Monologue,
a spoken word recording that is quite interesting.
Check him out here.

Jeff Burghart
Jeff Burghart…comic impressionist, ex-roommate of Pablo Francisco and master plumber.
Okay, I made that last one up, but dammit he could have been if he’d just managed to pass that grueling “toilet seat gasket replacement” final.
This is the place for all things Jeff Burghartish.

Steve Byrne
Steve is a pretty good stand-up comedian who really likes macaroni and cheese.
No, I mean REALLY likes macaroni and cheese.
This is his site.

Cab City Combo
I’d like to see this band live, they sound like fun.
Mostly a musical novelty group but my favorite piece by them is a sketch called “Sulu’s day”,
about a typical day on the bridge of the USS Enterprise.

Jeff Caldwell
Jeff Caldwell is a very funny man, a great stand-up comedian if there ever was one.
He’s insightful, smart and not at all profane. I highly recommend him.

Camper Van Beethoven
I have always liked this group.
I mean if it wasn’t for them nobody would ever take those damned skinheads bowling.
And that would be a shame. Really.

George Carlin
The Official George Carlin website. Everything’s here, from the complete “Seven dirty words” supreme court case transcripts to his newest CD release.
I’ve always considered him to be the best and I’m so very sorry that he’s no longer with us.
R.I.P George, you will be sorely missed!

Rodney Carrington
His CD “Hangin’ with Rodney” is very funny and a listener favorite on C101R.
Lots of naughty bits but worth a listen for sure.

Jasper Carrott
This funny british man has got his own website now. If you aren’t familar with his humor,
it’s because there isn’t much comedy getting to this country from jolly ol’ England and
that is a shame because there is plenty over there and a lot of it is funny, like Jasper.

Tim Cavanaugh
He’s performed such gems as “I want to kiss her (but she won’t let me)” and “Tim’s Blues”.
His Cd “Sounds like fun” is pretty good. Check out his website.

Celestial Navigations
This group is one of the best story telling sources I’ve ever heard.
Fronted by noted actor and author Geoffrey Lewis this is a very talented group and deserves to be heard.
Not all is funny, but all is good, and what IS funny is great.

Wyatt Cenac
Noted for his stint on The Daily Show and as a really good
stand-up comedian, Wyatt is one funny guy that I love to
play on the show! This is his site…

Eugene Chadbourne
Eugene is a very talented man, good at a lot of things.
Eclectic is a great word to use here. Check him out.

Chenille Sisters
I really like this group, Cheryl, Connie and Grace…The Chenille sisters!
Great harmonies, superb lyrics and when they are clever, nobody better.
I highly recommend them!

Chip Chinery
Chip is a pretty good stand-up performer.
You’ve probably seen him in commercials or movies as he does a bit of acting also.

Cheech and Chong
A Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong website that smokes.
Pun intended. Lots to see here. Some great background on the duo.

Bobby Collins
This guy has long been a favorite of mine.
A great comedian.
Good stuff.

The Consortium of Genius
The two CDs,”Free Brains and Dead Bodies” and the recently released “In Cog We Trust” are pretty good.
Mad genius scientist and his two interesting coworkers/subordinates make up the cast.
Mayhem makes up the plot.
This band is entertaining and highly original.

Tom Cool
Tom Cool is, as the name implies, pretty darned cool.
This is the place where you can get Cool things.
Isn’t that cool? I promise I won’t say cool again.

Steve Couch
Steve is a comic that is very likeable. His songs are clever, insightful and funny.
This is his website.

John Cougarstein
With songs like “I kissed a squirrel”, “Livin’ like Deepak Chopra” and “Smurfette”.
How can he go wrong?
Okay there was that incident with the farm animals, but that’s behind him now.

Coupla Fat Guys Band
This is a fine group of talented folk.
Humorous songs and videos and a whole lot more.
Very interesting, I like ’em.

The Cowards
Yet another great Canadian comedy source (one more reason to like Canada).
Their CD is called “A Condition Of Our Parole”.
I hope to see more of these guys in the future.
Very well done.

Mike Cross
This is one talented man! Multi instrumentalist, great with a lyric and and darned good performer. He penned The Scotsman, Bryan Bowers made it famous. Lots of good stuff here.

David Crowe
David Crowe is a hoot!
I love to play him on the show, he has classic material
that is hilarious and quite insightful, capable of great lines!
This is his site…

Sean Cullen
Sean Cullen, one of the original members of Corky and the Juice Pigs,
is still rocking the comedic world with his zany brand of humor!
I love this site! He has some kind of H. Bosch thing going on here.
A Garden of Earthly Delights for the Comedic Soul apparently…

Dan Cummins
Dan Cummins is a very good stand-up comedian.
One of the funnier ones on the circuit today.
He has his own original style and he is very humorous.
I call this joke “Very funny guy check him out now”.

Rodney Dangerfield
The man who made the phrase “I get no respect” famous. The official site.

Chad Daniels
This is a pretty good stand-up comedian, irreverent as all hell but very funny.
This is his site…enjoy.

Darby O’Gill
A Folk/Irish band of sorts.
Not all is meant to be funny but all is good and when it’s funny it’s GREAT.
I’m hooked. The “Kretchma” alone is worth the price of admission.
I’ll bet you’re wondering why I list this group under the “D”s instead of the “O”s.
I am mentally ill.
Please don’t tell anyone.

Da Yoopers
A good comedy
band with classic hits like “Rusty Chevrolet”, “Second week of deer camp”
parts one and two, “Fishin’ wit Fred” and many more.

Dead Frog
This is a great site for info on any and all of the stand-up
comedians on the road today. Lots of news here.
Check this out!

Dave Dingwall
What a unique, entertaining artist this man is.
Dave has a great video out called “Blue Collar Shuffle” and
I’ve been playing the tune on the show.
I hope he produces more work for airplay.
This is his site.

Nick DiPaolo
This guy is pretty funny, a good all around stand-up talent.
He does come across as a bit angry and bitter but I think that’s part of the act.
Has been on television with his own specials and on several comedy series.
His CD is really funny.

Duck Logic
I am so psyched about this group!
I first heard about Duck Logic back in the early nineties,
when I was just starting the show,
and I loved the material but I could not locate the tracks.
I managed to get some bootlegs but that didn’t fulfill me.
Then, right out of left field…voila!
Joe the Love Potato is a great running character,
a male chauvinist so over the top he’s a parody of himself.
There is more here…blogs, news, background info and more.
All the material is great stuff, highly recommended!
This is their site.
