When Radio Playhouse’s host, PK, brought the radio show from West Palm Beach to Portland, Oregon’s Jammin 95.5 FM in 2000, it quickly gained popularity. The show airs in Portland from 5-10am weekdays and various other times on its affiliates in other states, and has also become a nightly TV show, on Comcast channel 14 in Portland and Eugene. If you don’t live in the area, you can listen to the show through a live stream, subscribe to the podcasts, or watch clips from the past week’s shows, all on the Radio Playhouse site, managed by the producer, Ivan.
If watching a guy being tortured by nipple-pinching until he gives up a family secret, or seeing a producer try to make his own nose bleed suits your fancy, there’s plenty to whet your appetite. Radio Playhouse is boy humor at its raunchiest. PK’s cast and crew (consisting of both men and women) continually humiliate themselves in the name of comedy. News reporter Sonie is to PK what Robin is to Howard, and DuRyan, the show’s stuntman, has even been featured in a clip on VH1’s Web Junk 2.0 TV show. The boys are vulgar, rude, and often offensive (see the Mexican immigrant clip), but they’re also willing to do so at their own expense. There’s even a contest at the end of each show to see which cast member threw out the most insults. Like what you see? Subscribe to the podcast and see an extended version that lasts a more substantive 2 or 3 minutes compared to the 30 or so second regular clips.
Like Howard, Radio Playhouse is a little sex-obsessed. In one especially raunchy clip, a female guest watches an adult video (not shown) to learn a few tricks as the boys crack up at her disgusted reactions.
