Overview

Comedy and mystery are happy bedfellows in The Misadventures of Sherlock Holmes. Award-winning veteran radio producer Joe Bevilacqua’s ten-part radio theater series pays humorous homage to the classic characters of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The stories are filled with sly references to the original “canon,” and even the Baker Street Irregulars and other Holmesian groups and scholars have enjoyed this about the series.

Titles include The Mystery of the Creepy Hack Writer, My Dinner at Baker Street, Sherlock Holmes in Trouble, A Study in Lavender, The Death of Mr. Sherlock Holmes, The Giant Rat of Sumatra, Tales From the Vienna Wards, His Second to Last Bow, Revenge of the Beekeeper, and Holmes’ Creepy Christmas.

Bevilacqua, Joe

Joe Bevilacqua, also known as Joe Bev, is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist, but his career has taken him into every aspect of show business, including stage, film, and television, as a producer, director, writer, actor, and even cartoonist. In 1971 his father bought him a cassette recorder, on which he created his first audio story, "Willoughby and the Professor", acting all the voices himself at the age of twelve. In 1975 Daws Butler, the voice of Yogi Bear and many other Hanna-Barbera and Jay Ward cartoon characters, dubbed himself Bevilacqua's personal mentor after hearing a 120-minute cassette of Willoughby improvisations. Since 1980 Bevilacqua has produced many award-winning radio programs for National Public Radio, Sirius-XM Satellite Radio, and others.
