The Tony Perkins Show

On this week's CRAZY episode, the guys welcome AMAZING stand-up comedian HUGGY LOWDOWN! Huggy is one of the funniest people we know; he can be heard daily on radio's nationally syndicated "Tom Joyner Morning Show", and every afternoon in the Washington, D.C. area on MAJIC 102.3's "Donnie Simpson Show". He also appears at clubs and theaters across the country, usually with comedy sidekick (and TPGS show favorite) Chris Paul. This week he has Tony, Gary and Rob rolling with laughter!

PLUS: "In the News"; TWO awkward encounters for Gary; and Prince's "Purple Rain" like you've never heard it before!

In this show, Gary introduces a new "Tragic Audition From a Failed Acting Career". This story is titled "The Rob Lowe Role", and it is without a doubt one on the FUNNIEST stories Gary has ever told; and THAT'S saying something!

PLUS: The guys are THRILLED to welcome legendary sportscaster TIM RYAN, who talks about his AMAZING career covering big-time boxing, the NFL, the U.S. Open, and so much more. It ends up being a funny AND moving conversation.

Also: Tony and Gary talk about the WORST movies they've ever seen!

Note: Tim Ryan's new book, "On Someone Else's Nickel", is out now, and is available on Amazon. (Use the Amazon portal at!)

In episode 133, Gary and Tony pay tribute to one of the all-time great comedians, Don Rickles. They talk about and play some of their favorite moments from his long career, and the result is side-splitting!

PLUS: Legendary singer and songwriter JANIS IAN guests, along with the wonderful jazz singer Sarah Partridge, to talk about collaborating on Sarah's brand new album, a tribute to Janis called "Bright Lights and Promises". It is a wonderful, funny, and warm conversation, AND we get to preview some of the tracks! And oh, yeah:  "Breaking News" from Barry Manilow, and an ode to public transportation from the Bee Gees! LOL!

Note: "Bright Lights and Promises" comes out April 21st, but you can pre-order the album NOW at!

Stand-up comedian and fellow MORE Network host ROB MAHER joins us for this episode, and it is a laugh riot! He has instantly become one of our favorite guests ever, and we think you'll agree. Rob talks about performing for our troops, and Gary challenges Rob and former stand-up comic Tony to the "Punchline Game". It's great, great fun.

PLUS: A SURPRISING update on the Al Wilson song "The Snake" (that involves Donald Trump!); Gary does battle with Siri; and TONY has his own "Celebrity Encounter"! Well.....kinda. This episode is already one of our favorites ever....enjoy!

Note: Rob Maher will be presenting his next comedy/murder mystery at Magooby's Joke House in Timonium, Maryland on April 13th. Go to for tickets.  AND you can currently see him on the Kevin Hart-hosted Comedy Central TV show "Hart of the City". Go to for info.
