Baggage Claim: Norm MacDonald

The innovative talk show where Bob Zany corners celebrities and talks to them while they wait for their bags… this time it’s Norm Macdonald!



If it plays in Peoria – Bob in the News…

From the East Peoria Times-Courier:

A trio of comedians provide a night of entertainment Friday at the Peoria Civic Center.

Bob Zany, Costaki Economopoulos and Greg Hahn were part of the Friends of Bob & Tom Tour that made a stop in Peoria.

After some introductions and jokes by Bob and Tom news director Kristi Lee, Zany was the first to take the stage.

Zany’s forte is definitely stand-up comedy in front of crowds. While Zany had plenty of good jokes, the best laughs came when he was joking with the crowd.

Early on, he kept calling out latecomers to the show, drawing plenty of laugher.

Throughout the first part of his act, he kept stopping and explaining jokes to Tim in the front row, and finally just started talking to him and joking about his profession, or lack thereof.

However, his best cracks at the crowd’s expense came when he did The Zany Report. After getting a few jokes into the report, a heckler yelled out about hearing the material before.

Zany quickly retorted that he’s been on tour for 38 years, the guy had a choice to buy the ticket and that he “could do the math.” Zany continued on, bantering back and forth with him, getting plenty of laughs.

‘If I’ve offended anyone here tonight, how bout that,” Zany ended with.

Bob Zany and Ron Morey to perform at the Improv at Harveys Lake Tahoe

Check out this article from the Tahoe Daily  Tribune by Howie Nave.

“When it comes to self-promotion comedian/actor Bob Zany is the best. It’s just one of the many things we have in common. So, when I mentioned we should do a “three-men-in-black-suits” week he loved the idea. Granted it’s not a stretch, as he wears a black suit anyway, but he liked the idea of having all three of us wearing suits onstage. Zany is no stranger to the Lake Tahoe area. He’s a regular every Tuesday on my morning radio show with “The Zany Report,” where he offers up biting commentary on the news, turning it into something funny and entertaining. Zany performs at the Improv at Harveys this week with Ron Morey.”
