Joel Radio #23: No Thanks

This week, Joel gives thanks for the big announcement that Oprah Winfrey is ending her talk show in 2011. While the popular spin is that she's making the move to cable, Joel believes there's more to the story than the "Queen of Daytime" is letting on. Go inside the numbers to uncover huge ratings drops, outrageous syndication fees and a backfiring political agenda - are any of these the real reason she's leaving? Either way, she still weighs more than Joel! Also, the V remake is really good, the best sitcom on TV, and Black Friday is finally explained. Plus, the guys' UFC picks undergo statistical analysis. Who's the genius now?

Joel Radio #22: Now That's Quality

In a Joel Radio first, the show goes on the road to Northern Michigan. That's Gaylord, Michigan, to be more precise, and the Quality Inn to be even more exact. Joel and Steve Sabo are in Gaylord for a comedy show, so the guys took some time to discuss that night's show and a bunch of other fun stuff. The guys discuss the odd characters at the comedy show, Sabo grades Joel's performance (it's low!), and Sabo admits to his checkered past - as an impressionist. Plus, a rundown of UFC 105 and a preview of UFC 106, looking for porn in a hotel room, and Jay Leno meets Christian Slater and you are there. If you ever wondered what comics do on the road after a show, wonder no more.

Joel Radio #21: The Freaks Come Out

There's a lot of weird stuff in the news lately. From Chaz Bono becoming a man, to Sammy Sosa becoming a white man, there's just a lot of weird stuff going on. And who better to discuss it, than the weirdest guy of all, Harry Artin. Harry loved Michael Jackson's movie, hates Carrie Prejan, and loves both a cleansing fast diet and eating multiple burgers in one night. Both Joel and Harry are repulsed by the chimp attack victim's new face, and how a guy died after filming Wipeout. Also, Harry goes to Hallowicked, his obnoxious celebrity encounter that took place there and why Upchuck needed security. Plus, Joel goes north for work, Harry's YouTube is funny, and Bratz Dolls vs Taylor Swift - who's hotter?

No show this week, but listen to this

Due to stand-up related travels, there won't be a new Joel Radio posted this week. However, there is something cool you can listen to, and that is John Tenney's podcast The Oddist. John's got an interview with myself and Harry Artin Berbarian on his most recent show. It's really funny too, with talk of conspiracies, UFOs, online dating and toothless squirrels. Here's a direct link, with Harry and I coming in at the 42:00 minute mark. John was always a great guest on Corey and Joel Radio, so give him the ol' reacharound and listen to The Oddist - you won't regret it.
