Local comedian Mike Polk’s "Hastily Made Cleveland Tourism Video" on YouTube garnered a lot of attention locally and even nationally. A jingle about a house that costs as little as a VCR and our once-flaming river pokes fun at Northeast Ohio's struggles. Cleveland is known as the home of bowling, pierogis, and polka and, of course, the Congressman who sees UFOs. Northeast Ohio has long been the butt of late night laughs. Unless you’ve never heard of Parma, you’ve probably heard all the jokes. Is it all in good fun or are Clevelanders really down on Cleveland? Is it a bad thing to be known as the "Mistake on the Lake?" Join us tomorrow with your thoughts on Cleveland as American’s pinata and share your best hometown laugh. Having fun with Cleveland, Friday at 9 on 90.3.

Guests

Mike Polk, Comedian, Last Call Cleveland
