About Joe

Joe Bevilacqua is a frequent contributor to National Public Radio, and, in 2004, was awarded a Silver Reel Award from the National Federation of Community Broadcasters for his personal essay A Guy Named Joe Bevilacqua. He hosts, writes, and produces a weekly program, The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, for XM Satellite Radio's Sonic Theater Channel (163), which includes a regular segment called Scenes from the Daws Butler Workshop. He has written and produced hundreds of radio plays, including the popular comedy series, The Misadventures of Sherlock Holmes, which he co-wrote with Daws Butler, and his pet project, The Whithering of Willoughby and the Professor, 18 surrealistic half-hours in which he performs all the characters himself.

His current radio show THE COMEDY-O-RAMA HOUR aires on XM Satellite Radio's SiriusXM Book Radio (163) and Public Radio stations nationwide.

Satellite radio is great for anyone to listen to on long commutes. Truckers report that listening to comedy or talk radio helps them stay awake on long hauls, so any ideas on how to stay alert should be posted to the truckers report site. Information that truckers report like listening to a satellite comedy channel could only help increase subscribers and bring new listeners in to the comedy shows.
