The Show Is UP: Bobby Slayton

Comic Bobby Slayton talks about why Hooters asked him not to say certain words and tries -- somewhat unsuccessfully -- to explain why his use of derogatory words about gays is not offensive. Plus, a wacky Top Secret Tourist Tip of the Week. Click on the date to hear it or right-click to download the show and listen whenever you want. Or subscribe via iTunes here or via Zune here.

Oct. 2: Bobby Slayton Rants and Raves

There is a fine line in comedy between being Don Rickles and being Michael Richards. Somehow, comic Bobby Slayton has carefully negotiated that complicated path, spicing his act with stereotypes, insults and foul language while never actually sparking any widespread controversy. Slayton, who appears nightly at the Hooters Hotel-Casino, joins us this hour to explain how he does it and what it may have cost him in career opportunities.

In Banter: The Lion King is coming, Donny & Marie are here, the Believe theater, a poker whippersnapper and the OJ and Plaza v Plaza cases are still in court.

Carefull Steve. I got slammed when I said Bette's dancers looked like a bunch of show girls too fat to be in an actual show.

And if the younger generation is better at multitasking how come they are a bunch of slackers and I can't get the kid at Taco Bell to get my two item order right?
