Ever Since I've Been The Champ!

There's a lot of work that goes into a successful radio bit. Working in radio has given me an appreciation for the preparation and work that goes into a show, let alone a successful daily bit. One bit that worked extremely well is The Champ, a funny clip from a former boxing champ who mistakes what people say. "Brother" Jake Edwards, who works for The Team 1040 in Vancouver, is the man behind The Champ, and I have to say that I've missed The Champ on local airwaves. I don't know what the syndication charges are, but some radio station near you should be picking up this hilarious bit.

Because he's a former boxer, he doesn't chat about hockey very often, but there's one clip floating around the internet that's pretty funny. I warn you in advance that this clip is PG-rated at best thanks to the joke Edwards makes, but it's still pretty darn funny for three minutes of your time. Enjoy!
Yeah, I'm not sure if that joke can be told around the kids, but the adults will get it. But that's the whole schtick with the Champ - he hears something that's quite innocent, but misinterprets what was actually said. I have a couple of his CDs, and some of the episodes are quite funny.

If you want to hear other episodes, there's a great archive found on The Team 1040's website. The Champ covers lots of topics and mishears a lot of statements, and it ends with laughter as he snaps and loses it on someone.

Kudos to Jake Edwards for creating this awesome radio bit and letting it ride for the last fifteen years! That kind of longevity is proof that if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
