Cowboy Bill Martin
Brings Out Killer Comedy!
cowboy Bill Martin
has built a loyal following of fans from coast to coast the old fashioned way – He earned it by working the road and bringing on the funny. The Texas native has toured with some of the biggest names in country music including George Jones, George Strait, Brad Paisley and Rascal Flatts and has headlined many of the most prestigious clubs and theaters in the U.S. and Canada.
Critic Punch Shaw of The Fort Worth Star Telegram says, "Martin is not your typical country-cowboy comic. There’s no talk about trailer parks or inbreeding. Sure he wears cowboy garb on stage and he speaks with a Texas accent but his comedy touches people of all cultures. In performance, he’s apt to remind you of Gary Busey with an edge. That is especially applicable, especially when Martin flashes a toothy grin and gives a gee-whiz shrug of his broad shoulders."
Bill began his career in 1996. He had recently divorced, been fired from his job in advertising and his Grandmother was dying of lung cancer. Not exactly the things that you would typically build a stand-up comedy career around, especially since nobody around him thought he was funny. Even his own mother said to his father after Bill told her that he was going to be a comedian, “He wants to be a comedian? I don’t think he’s funny.” Turns out she was wrong and audiences everywhere have been laughing ever since.
