On today’s show the very likable, big gay Mexican Bill Cruz joins us to talk about what it’s like to be a pioneer in the comedy scene here in Chicago.
Everyone loves his work, but in his early days he struggled to entertain audiences and even connect with his own. Once while performing in front of a Latino college fraternity, he was booed when he came out as a gay man.
One crowd that’s always loved him is the fans of the Feast of Fools. Yes, Bill shared a stage with us on one of our live shows six years ago! So where’s he been all this time?
Bill has been performing as a professional comic across the country and he’s recently been featured in Mike Player’s book Out on the Edge: America’s Rebel Comics a book that details the true lives stories of gay comedians.
Is it the downturn in the economy or the warmer weather that heating things up in Chicago? Several of our friends have been mugged lately, including me two days ago in front of the ghetto Jewel grocery store in Andersonville. Listen to today’s show for the scary details.

A new painting titled “The Funeral of Mona Lisa” being showed at the Loov, the same museum where the original Mona Lisa is held is causing quite a commotion. Could the exhibition be an attempt by the museum to tone down the celebrity of the great masterpiece?
An article on the science of orgasms is disappointing to men because all it talks about is why woman have a hard time getting off. Why can’t the women get off as easily as men do?
And did Donny Osmond stick his foot in his mouth when talking about the possibility of going on the TV show Dancing with the Stars?
