Long before Sgt. Lefty and the Camp Waterlogg gang took over, The Comedy-O-Rama Hour residents were parody versions of mysteries (Sherlock Holmes), old-time radio (The Shadow, The Lone Ranger, etc.), sci-fi (Willoughby and the Professor), superheroes (Teaman and Polfroon), and more. The original scripted Comedy-O-Rama came to a conclusion in 2008, a victim of the SiriusXM merger. In 2012, Joe Bev revamped The Comedy-O-Rama Hour.
