Big Daddy Graham says tumor is gone, plans return to work

Big Daddy Graham says that doctors tell him his tumor is gone. The bad news is "I still have to finish out two weeks of radiation and chemo because they say often pockets of cancerous cells hide in spots that don't show up on their tests," says the 610 WIP overnight host and comedian whose throat cancer was discovered by accident while he was being intubated for back surgery. Graham says that he's never felt worse. "My neck and face have broken out like a pepperoni pizza, and eating is torturous," says Graham, who has lost 30 pounds during treatment. He is planning to go back on the air May 25 and in the meantime has been writing "From The Bed of Big Daddy Graham" for Philadelphia magazine. Graham says that he'll return to stand-up gigs on May 30 at Coffee. Comedy (29 JFK), in Sea Isle City. It's my "stand-up coming-out party" he says. Reservations: 609-263-5282.
