February 26th 27th & 28th
Bil Dwyer is an accomplished standup comic whose resume also includes acting, hosting and writing. His hip and sardonic takes on marriage, kids and family have been showcased in the half-hour comedy special "Comedy Central Presents: Bil Dwyer," as well as on "The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn," "The Martin Short Show," NBC's "Late Friday," "Evening at the Improv" and "Caroline's Comedy Hour." Most recently he has appeared on “iCarly,” “Parks & Recreation,” “Suburgatory,” and “House of Lies.” He describes his comedy as "a cross between gentle sarcasm and bewilderment and barely-contained rage and a 'very special episode' of Mr. Ed." Dwyer guest-starred on "The Larry Sanders Show" and "Ally McBeal," and hosted GSN's "I've Got a Secret." He has hosted "Extreme Dodgeball," "That '70s House," "Battlebots" and "Dirty Rotten Cheaters," and has been a regular comedy commentator on VH1's series "I Love the '70s," "I Love the '80s" and "I Love the '90s." Additional credits include "The Test," VH1's "The List," E!'s "Rank" and AMC's "Movies at Our House." On the big screen, Dwyer appeared in the films "Ski School 2," "The Bogus Witch Project" and "What Planet Are You From?" Working with sitcom star/television writer Christopher Titus, Dwyer recently co-created a show based on his stand-up comedy called "Back After This," which is in development.
As for why he wanted to be on "Last Comic Standing," Dwyer says, "Who doesn't like to be judged? You ever see how happy those dogs are at the Westminster Kennel Club show? That's me - the grinning Pomeranian." Since Bil's last visit to Ann Arbor, you've seen him in "Kill Spin" a dark comedy web series, as a recurring character on "Hot in Cleveland" with Betty White.
He’s also shot a pilot for The Disney Channel called "Lab Rats" and a pilot for ABC called "Funny in Farsi.”
Don't miss your chance to see Bil up close and personal this week at the Comedy Showcase!
