Water’s Edge Radio Hour returns this Sunday, March 2, for the fifth installment of the local variety show. Hosted at the Bridge, the stage of the Bridgehampton Community House, the radio sketch comedy hour will be broadcast live on WPPB, 88.3 FM.
The show features “locally grown comedy and insight” by actors standing at microphones. It has skits of local characters, such as deer ticks and summer tourists, in funny, universal situations, as well as several essays.
“Language is the most powerful thing we have. Good writing is compelling. We can transport people there with just a few words or sound effects and their imagination follows the rest of it,” says show host Josh Perl, who created Water’s Edge along with John Landes and Peter Zablotsky. Mr. Zablotsky and Mr. Perl are partners in the Naked Stage Theatre Company and HITfest, the Hamptons Independent Theatre Festival.
Telly Karoussos and Brad Penuel of the local band Hopefully Forgiven will perform full songs and musical interludes throughout the show.
The fifth episode of Water’s Edge Radio Hour will be broadcast live Sunday, March 2 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. from the Bridgehampton Community House, 843 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike. The show will also air on WPPB, 88.3 FM. Tickets are $15 each and can be purchased at the door or online.
