    MitZ Comedian, Author, Speaker

    in Christianity

    From Insanity to Sane presents Tranea Prosser she is an inspiring author and comedian guarantee to make you laugh, come out to support Tranea as we sit down for an exclusive interview May 21, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. CST. To be apart of the studio listening audience please dial (323) 693- 3930 if at anytime you desire to speak with the host please dial 1.


     


    The first verse in the third chapter of the old Testament book of Ecclesiastes states "To everything there is a there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven." Among the 27 purposes listed is a "...time to laugh."  And so it is for audiences exposed to the comedy  styling of the fabulous MizT.  From her trademark opening dance routine (the girl can 'jam'), to her infectious laugh, MizT knows how to bring "the funny" with purpose, ferocity and freshness. MizT is an experienced comedienne now getting more national notice with her debut comedy album, "Back at 'Ya Lord!"   Coming soon will be a DVD version of that hilarious CD.  


     


    She has also won critical acclaim, being chosen runner-up as the "Comedian of The Year" during the 2010 Texas Gospel Music Excellence awards.  And she has been notified that she's a nominee in the 2013 "Comedian of The Year" category by the Gospel Sounds Radio Network. Until fairly recently, MizT's "side-splitting" comedy routines was shared primarily with folks in Texas...from Dallas to Houston to the capital city of Austin.  But she is a regional star no more...becoming a comic force across the U-S with the release of "Back at 'Ya Lord."  Clips from MizT's comedy album are now airing on Internet radio stations across America and overseas in London. Prepare to be blessed as we discuss her book and comedy. Laughter is good for the soul. Remember God loves you.

    Dadio's Lunch Bucket Radio Clinic #82 - a "Hey Ya' Big Jerk Productions" gig

    in Current Events

    DADIO'S LUNCH BUCKET RADIO CLINIC: Show 82 - Tuesday,  19 May 2015, 2:30 p.m.


    Live again this week..., our 82nd show over all on Janesville Community Radio ..., and ...., and the boys are back to do a show from Studio 54 1/2 down on Main Street in downtown Janesville, Wisconsin...., or at least what the hell is left of the aforementioned city..., and what's left of the Dadio for that matter.

    Dadio's Lunch Bucket has a little bit of everything. Live from the MY OFFICE JVL building, and sometimes on the road at local taverns and coffee shops, the Radio Clinic risks the perils of ad hoc radio. There is a working class blue-collar theme with local and regional interests that weave through the show. Some college degrees are mixed in. And, all along the way they try to give a voice to those ignored by the status quo.  Somehow, they entertain us all in the process.


    Segments include but are not limited to:  Word Phrase; Fish Fry; Quiz; Blue-Collar Jobs; Wisconsin War Casualties; News and Comment; and..., Burgers.


    You need to ask Dadio and his crew some questions..., the man comes with his own support group that is prepared and ready to pull him out of the holes he invariably digs himself into!


    Call the show, play the quiz, win, make Dadio buy you a beverage at a local watering hole!
