Laughs with Dave Russo and Teri Granahan

December 12, 2011

December 8

Today was my last Thursday with the show. It was a great show filled with a lot of laughs and plenty of food.

In the kitchen was Dave Missey from Smokin’ Vittles. He had enough food on the show today to feed the entire South Franklin Street. I really enjoyed the corn bread and smoked ham. Because I am still getting over a cold, I couldn’t really enjoy the homemade hotdogs and other specialty items. This was Smokin’ Vittles second time on the show and he did a great job. He brought his wife and his son. His son even got to appear on television during the comedy segment.

Every Thursday, Ralphie Aversa from 97BHT gives his weekly Ralphie Report. Today he dished on the new Miss PA USA winner and singer Adele’s demands. Ralphie always does such a great job, and I am always amazed at the interviews that he gets with big name celebrities.

The main reason I wanted to get better for this show today was to see comedians Dave Russo and Teri Granahan perform. Both are communication graduates from Wilkes University, and I was involved with their comedy show held at Wilkes tonight. I talked with Teri a lot on the phone for interviews, but I never got to meet her. It was so nice meeting her since I already knew so much about her. It was also really cool to meet Dave Russo. Dave performs at big comic events and comedy clubs around the country. They even brought a studio audience to PA Live! today. The audience was made up of my professor, Doctor Jane Elmes-Crahall and fellow members of Zebra Communication, our public relations agency at Wilkes University.

I think both comedians, Dr. Jane and my fellow classmates had a great time at the show today. One of the benefits was getting to sample the food at the end. There was definitely plenty of it to try.

It was really cool to have comedians on the show because we never had a comedian actually perform one of their routines before. Dave was hilarious and incorporated many aspects of the show. My favorite part was when he incorporated Dave Missey’s son. Our “studio audience” and all the other guests laughed almost the entire time Dave and Teri were on the air. This was a really good segment, and I am so glad I was able to get both of them on the show.

We also had professional dirt-bike racers from the Ama Arenacross series on the show talking about their upcoming event at the Mohegan Sun Area. We definitely had a busy show with a lot of guests.

When I was posting video after the show today with Monica, it hit me that my internship is finally coming to an end. I need to make the best out of my last day tomorrow.
