Sam & Bill's *SECRET* Press Page!

HOMETOWN: New York, NY
Formed in 2009, Sam & Bill are an atypical musical comedy duo. Described as "musical comedy for people who hate musical comedy" their goal isn't just making catchy music that makes you laugh, their music strives to make fun of both music and comedy. Tired of the same old dick joke comedy, they decided to try something new; dick joke songs. It's working out pretty well.
Called "The Sexier Simon & Garfunkel" and "Pretty funny for two white dudes," Sam & Bill have shared comedy stages with Tracy Morgan, Dave Attell, Judah Friedlander, and more. They have headlined at Seattle's HIGHlarious Comedy Festival, hosted at the New York Comedy Festival and New Orleans Comedy Arts Festival, opened the 4th annual New York Funny Songs Festival (and won an audience award the following year), and performed at Laughingstock: The Chicago Comedy Rock Festival. They regularly perform to packed audiences at comedy clubs such as Caroline's On Broadway, The Creek & The Cave, The Stand, and NY Comedy Club. They also sell a lot of T shirts.
Sam & Bill are big sad nerds, and have long been involved with geek culture. In 2016, they had huge performances at Indiana Comic Con and Texancon, in which they played music, performed comedy, hosted panels, and judged talent shows. Sam & Bill are also both guest columnists on geek culture and comedy blogs, like CollegeHumor, Splitsider, and DoomRocket.
