Will the real reverend please stand up.

The Reverend Bob Levy and his collective of stand-up comics known as the Killers of Comedy (Rev. Bob Levy, Jim Florentine, Sal Governale, Richard Christy, Shuli, Yucko the Clown, Beetlejuice & The Iron Sheik), are coming to the Avalon and even Hollywood will notice. Bob is a regular on "The Howard Stern Show", is a professional comedian, has horrible spelling skills, and lives with in the basemen of his ex-wife's house (but he might be moving into his son's room if he takes the attic - progress) .

We got him to stop eating blue cheese out of strange people's cracks long enough for him to answer some of our questions and we feel blessed.

LAist: Does your basement naturally smell mildewy or is that from the splooge?

Rev. Bob Levy: Both.

Don't you hate it when everyone tries to be a comedian?

I hate most people to begin with.

One of your fortes is handling hecklers, I take it that just comes with time and experience on stage, or have you always been good at that?

I was always an asshole, so that helps when working the crowd.

Have you always been as seasoned of a veteran with eating blue cheese out of a chicks ass? When'd that start?

I've been eating ass since I've been 18. I bet I have a yard of shit in my stomach by now.

What do you think of LA? & How are the crowds out there?

I love them. A lot of Mexicans and since I worked in San Antonio with Kidd Chris, I realized how cool they are.
