The Comedy-O-Rama Hour

Scenes from the Daws Butler Workshop

EXCERPT: "If Samuel Beckett had written for Bob and Ray, he might have created this eccentric gem from Daws Butler, part of the encyclopedic archive of voice artist mastery curated by Joe Bevilacqua." (THE FULL REVIEW IS BELOW.)

Hey gang!

Check out this amazing review we got, or I should say DAWS got!

And be sure to listen to THE COMEDY-O-RAMA HOUR "Summer Italian Special," airing tomorrow (Sunday) at 8 am and 8 p.m. [ET] on XM Satellite Radio Channel 163!

It is a blend of the real and the surreal, a Fellini film in sound... including rare personal audio of my father and nana, from 1976, and STARRING: Jim Folly and Cousin Kenny Savoy as Marcello and Luigi, with a great supporting cast including Lorie Kellogg and Tom Giannazzo!

It will be available for online listening on Monday at: www.comedyorama.com

And now... the review!

Review Text:

If Samuel Beckett had written for Bob and Ray, he might have created this eccentric gem from Daws Butler, part of the encyclopedic archive of voice artist mastery curated by Joe Bevilacqua.

A pair of melodiously brogued men, both voiced by Butler, reflect on the strange tail of Margery Dickerson who "fell down one day and never got up." This curiously playful bit of blarney could be programmed as drama, story-telling, creative writing or as part of any discussion of the power of language.

Daws Butler was the great utility infielder of voice artists. His creations continue to echo in the heads of countless television-bred Boomers. To discover this Joyce-ian vignette from the man behind Huckleberry Hound and Yogi Bear is a double treat.

"Ah, the poor soul."
