More Information


Karel (Charles Karel Bouley) is a syndicated talk show host with a show heard on KGO AM 810 San Francisco as well as in five other markets (KRXA, KGOE, KYNS, KJRB, Green1640 Atlanta). Karel continues his No. 1 talk show at Citadel/ABC’s flagship station, KGO AM 810 San Francisco (No. 1 overall station) and made history for KFI AM 640 Los Angeles. He is an entertainment reporter and film critic (having worked with KNX 1070 Los Angeles CBS, Billboard, The Advocate and others).

He is a blogger for the and has been a columnist for the No. 1 gay/lesbian newsmagazine The Advocate at and IN Magazine Los Angeles, as well as Billboard and others. His book of essays You Can’t Say That is published by Alyson Press and his new book, Shouting at Windmills, BS From Bush To Obama hits the stands in the Spring of 2011. His music is available at iTunes and other online stores and he maintains a blog, podcasts and message boards at

His live stage show Karel Stands Up mixes politics and humor and sells out consistently. Karel also appears as a guest on topical issues having appeared on such cable news networks as CNN, MSNBC and Fox News. He is a regular guest on Techlink for Time/Warner, as a Macintosh Computer expert and even did two seasons as a lead actor on TNN’s Ultimate Revenge hosted by Ryan Seacrest (an improved practical joke show a la Punk’d) created by industry veteran Woody Fraser. Karel produced, directed and wrote a marriage equality PSA that won second place in GLAAD’s “I Do” contest, being aired at OutFest and on national television, featuring 12 youth and a cameo by Thomas Jefferson.

Karel made history with his late partner (on and off air) Andrew Howard as the duo became the first openly gay male couple to host a major market talk show when they took over afternoon drive at KFI AM 640 Los Angeles (following Rush Limbaugh and Dr. Laura on the #1 talk station in the country). Upon Andrew’s untimely death in 2001, Karel went solo and personally changed state law in California so he could pursue a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of his partner. He does his shows from his studio at the home they shared, Park Howard, in Long Beach, CA, where he lives with his dogs and cat.

Maureen Langan performs all over the world. She was a finalist in the 2009 San Francisco Comedy Competition and the winner of the 2009 MAC Award for Best Female Comic. She’s appeared on _T__he Joy Behar Show, Comics Unleashed_ and HBO. She’s a regular at Carolines on Broadway in New York City… Maureen grew up in Lake Hiawatha, New Jersey, where there is no lake.
