Bill Crawford with Player One + Uke & Tuba
A Pittsburgh native, Bill Crawford is a fresh face on the national scene and has quickly become one of the country's most promising young comedians. Bill has performed in the TBS Just For Laughs comedy festival in Chicago and was one of the featured comics in the LOL Lounge Showcase. Crawford came up through the ranks at the Pittsburgh Improv, going from open mics to headlining and selling out shows. Since 2010, Bill has been touring clubs all over the country. A requested feature act for comics like Jim Bruer, Steve Byrne, Bryan Callen and Bert Kreischer, he is also a full-time player on the WDVE Morning Show.
Bill's comedy is all about perspective and sarcasm. He mixes a blend of intelligence and the ridiculous, taking on a variety of topics and turning them inside out. His sharp wit and comedic style create humorous observations from the everyday life of a young guy with two kids trying to figure it all out.
Player One, Arcade Comedy Theater's own in-house improv troupe, presents an evening of hilarious and unpredictable theater improv. The team is coached by Jethro Nolen and comprised of experienced improvisers from both the Second City Touring Company and iO West, as well local veterans from various troupes and venues across Pittsburgh, including Friday Nite Improvs and The Pittsburgh Improv Jam.
Uke & Tuba are Pittsburgh's finest ukulele/tuba band (with dancers [and a banjo and a saxophone]). They have played rock shows, house parties, bars, comedy clubs, poetry readings, coffeehouses, a library, a wedding, a yard sale, the 2008 One Nation Under A Uke Fest in Philadelphia, a church, as the orchestra in a musical, in public parks, a TV show, a middle-school Girl Scouts' day camp, Andy Warhol's grave and an abandoned bowling alley.
