The Advertising Show

How many times have we said this: “This is the funniest WCJM show of all time.” Apparently, not enough! The Advertising Show, the brainchild of Matt, became a reality on Friday, June 7. Jeff came to WCJM studios after he got out of work and after a two hour writing session, the show finally started. The show consisted of four people, all comedy writers from WCJM. Jim took the hosting position and Matt acted as Jim’s right-hand man. Jeff and Mike combined to bring puns and witty comments throughout the show, too.
The show was recorded in mono by request of Jeff, so they could get double the time out of the MiniDisc. They would need it, as the show clocked in at 108 minutes! Therefore, the cast finished the show completely at 12:10 AM on Saturday! This late time could have been less had it not been for Jim completely erasing the last fifteen minutes of the show by accident, making the guys record it over again.

This show features 19 skits, promos, routines, and interviews including the Food Critic, Stuffy D. Bear, and Dr. K. Music was chosen from Matt and Jim’s collections and every song had to deal with a different aspect of advertising in some way. Skits like the Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler announcing skit, Ronco, and Garret Yates’ “I Can’t Believe It’s Not” products all made return appearances on this show. The laughter doesn’t stop for one minute out the 108, and this show is certainly one that you’ll want to listen to and quote from for years to come!
