National Lampoon Radio Hour to Feature Alt Comedy Supergroup
Forever Dog and National Lampoon tapped alt comedy icons Cole Escola and Jo Firestone to helm the National Lampoon Radio Hour relaunch. Joining them will be Rachel Pegram, Brett Davis, Maeve Higgins, Alex English, Lorelei Ramirez, Megan Stalter, Aaron Jackson, and Martin Urbano.
Thanks to new president (and former head of Seeso) Evan Shapiro, the National Lampoon brand is getting a facelift this year, and the most exciting new project to come out of it yet is the relaunch of The National Lampoon Radio Hour in podcast form. The original comedy radio show ran from 1973-1974 and featured comedy legends like John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Harold Ramis, Christopher Guest, Michael O’Donoghue, and Bill Murray, and now the Lampoon is teaming up with the Forever Dog podcast network to bring it back to the world. And the lineup of writers and performers is very, very promising.
