    David Pratt, author of "Looking After Joey", Thursday, July 10, 9PM EST

    in Books

     


    "Read Looking After Joey with the expectation of laughing throughout, but there’s more to it than that. The social commentary is razor sharp, and the ultimate destination is surprisingly moving." - 'Nathan Burgoine, Out in Print


    From the author of Bob the Book -- a funny, fast-paced, touching tale of love, laughter, family of choice and fabulousness!


    Wouldn’t it be great if a character stepped out of the TV, into your life? Well, be careful what you wish for, because that’s how Calvin and Peachy end up looking after Joey. And teaching him everything he needs to know to be be a gay man in New York City. The big test? A fabulous party on Fire Island. But first, they have to get invited. This will involve a rogues’ gallery of gay Manhattanites, including portly, perspiring publicist Bunce van den Troell; theatrical investor Sir Desmond Norma; priapic publisher Stuart Bergman; and lubricant king Fred Pflester. Tender, witty and utterly deranged, Looking After Joey will make you wish that you, too, had a character at your kitchen table asking, “So, when can I have sex?”

    MC 3/13/13 Celebrating PP3

    in Sports

    Celebrating Percy Pringle III - Many of us from the "good old days" of Wrestling remember a squeely voice, funny faces, portly man and a heart of gold that managed many throughout the South as Percy Pringle III; others more recently know him as The Undertakers care taker & Kane's father in WWF/WWE, Paul Bearer; more importantly he was an amazing man, husband, father and friend, Bill Moody! 
    Percy was a true class act from the time he stepped foot into a wrestling dressing room! He deserved everything that this Business offered and afforded him. But his 1st business of being a mortician served him well later on when he became Paul Bearer in the WWF/WWE.
    Percy passed away March 5th at the age of 58. It was a shock to his family and the wrestling world. He will be greatly missed by many around the World.
    Tonight a few from the World Class/Sportatorium days & a current Indy great will be reliving stories about the one and only Percy Pringle the 3rd! 
    Tune in TONIGHT at 9pm CST via this showpage and chat or call in & listen LIVE at 1-917-889-3845. I encourage callers, so press #1 to be put in the call-in que!

    Dom DeLuise: Farewell, Beloved Funnyman

    in Movies



    “I sang it in the wrong key, but my heart’s in the right place," Dom (above) told us of his hilarious foodie tune.

    Dom DeLuise: 1933-2009

    NEW YORK, May 5, 2009 (BlogTalkRadio) – The world is a lot less funny today, now that Dom DeLuise has left us. Dom, who brought infinite joy to audiences over the past five decades, passed away last night in a Los Angeles hospital at the age of 75.

    During his career, the funnyman graced such big-screen comedies as Blazing Saddles, The Cheap Detective, Silent Movie, Fatso, and History of the World: Part 1, as well as a slew of TV shows, ranging from Beverley Hills, 90210 to 3rd Rock from the Sun. The Big Apple-born actor-comedian is survived by his wife, Carol Arthur, and his three sons, Peter, Michael and David DeLuise.

    Eight months ago, Dom dropped in on Sedona Talk Radio to chat about his new cookbook, Eat This – Again! During the confab – and in a fitting farewell to his many BlogTalkRadio fans – he had hosts Sonya Haramis and Joanne Paxinou in stitches more than a few times.

    “My wife grew up in New Jersey and I grew up in Brooklyn. And there were different rules,” he riffed. “I grew up in a neighbor- hood that had people like John Scunziano. Another guy named Domenic Bimbo. And these were just the Jews.”

    Later in the show, the portly paisan broke into his own personal rendition of the tarantella, called The Pasta Fazul Song.
