Renegade Radio to broadcast live with Mayor Bergson

Renegade Comedy Theatre returns to the airwaves with the next edition of “The Renegade Radio Hour.”

This locally produced sketch comedy show will be broadcast live on KUWS 91.3 FM from 7 to 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 29.

The show will be staged at the Pickwick Restaurant in downtown Duluth.

Admission is free, but audience members are asked to be seated by 6:55 p.m. before the show goes on the air live at 7. (Those famous Pickwick onion rings will be able to be ordered during the show, however.)

“The Renegade Radio Hour” is the only locally produced, originally written sketch comedy show on Twin Ports radio, and it is all performed live in front of a studio audience.

This Halloween-themed show is ready to have some fun with a wide variety of topics, including Sen. Larry Craig doing his "wide-stance dance," Mayor Herb Bergson contemplating his last Halloween in office and "the great debate" between Duluth mayoral candidates Charlie Bell and Don Ness.

The celebrity guest is Mayor Herb Bergson, and the musical guest is singer/songwriter Jerree Small.
