From press release:
Billy Willy comes to The Toronto Fringe Festival to debut THE BILLY WILLY SHOW
The Billy Willy Show is an old-fashioned barn dance radio program hosted by America’s least favorite country and western superstar. Between songs, Billy Willy shares his hilarious hard-luck stories and masterfully combines stand up comedy and storytelling in a surreal satire about one cowboy’s obsession with country music, success, and celebrity.
Billy Willy is an award-winning, genre-crossing performer and one of the most original voices on the American comedy scene. His sidesplitting performances are fusions of storytelling, performance
art, and stand-up comedy that can be appreciated on many levels. For this reason, Billy Willy is a favorite of audiences who like to think as well as laugh.
The New York City Fresh Fruit Festival said, “Billy Willy is perfectly bizarre and wonderfully funny. Loved it!”
The Other Paper said, “Whatever it is, it’s funny!”
Billy Willy was voted Best Solo Performer and Audience Favorite at the National Gay and Lesbian Theatre Festival in Columbus, OH.
The Billy Willy Show marks Billy’s Canadian debut and the world premiere of his latest show.
Billy Willy in association with The Toronto Fringe Festival proudly presents The Billy Willy Show starring, written, and directed by Billy Willy.
The Billy Willy Show is playing at The Randolph Center for the Arts in The Solo Room, located at 736 Bathurst Street, Toronto, ON M5S 2R5.
