HOMETOWN: New York, NY
Formed in 2009, Sam & Bill began as a deliberately offbeat cover band composed of two comedians, and quickly became a comedy band composed of two deliberately offbeat best friends.
Called "The Sexier Simon & Garfunkel" and "Pretty funny for two white guys," Sam & Bill have been tearing up the stage at comedy clubs in NYC from Caroline's On Broadway, to The Stand, to The Creek & The Cave, and beyond. In addition, Sam & Bill have hosted comedy variety show The Lemonade Stand for the New York Comedy Festival (which got a shout-out in the NY Times), opened and MC'd the 4th Annual New York Funny Songs Festival (and won an audience award the following year), opened Laughingstock: The Chicago Comedy Rock Festival, and headlined and MC'd at the New Orleans Comedy Arts Festival, and headlined Seattle's brand new HIGHlarious Comedy Festival.
Sam & Bill are big sad nerds, and have long been involved with geek culture. They had huge performances at MAGfest, Indiana Comic Con, and Texancon, in which they played music, performed comedy, hosted panels about comedy music, and judged talent shows.
