Bill Dawes is an actor/comic/writer.
As an actor, he has appeared in several award-winning independent films, including Adam, Evenhand and Fiona. He's had starring roles in two MGM Studio children's films—Just for Kicks and Recipe for Disaster—and an acting role in the DVD cult hit I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell. On TV, Bill has been on several hit shows, including Criminal Minds, Law and Order, Rizzoli and Isles, Sex and the City, OZ, and Criminal Intent. As a stage actor, Bill's first role was on Broadway with Sigourney Weaver and Christopher Durang in the play Sex and Longing. His most recent stage turn was on Broadway in the hit Tony-nominated production of Lombardi, where he played a lead role as Green Bay Packer Legend Paul Hornung, the "Golden Boy." Soon he will be appearing on Broadway again to play New York Yankees legend Mickey Mantle.
But don't be fooled by his boyish looks, his comedy pushes boundaries. His high-energy delivery mixes taboo subjects with comedy we can all relate to, making his show a non-stop barrage of laughter you wont soon forget. Bill has performed all over the U.S. and the world, including tours of Canada, Hong Kong, the Philippines, and South Africa. As part of the USO, he has performed for coalition forces in Iraq and Kuwait in front of crowds of over 8,000 international troops at bases in Baghdad. In his most recent international comedy experience, Bill was the only American invite for the 2012 New Zealand International Comedy Festival.
