Born and brought up in Chicago Bill is a brand in himself making people laugh since the 1970s. He has been an inspiration to many comedians since he incepted his own show in 1977 and over the years he has only excelled in his style. Bill has never been afraid to discuss his life with the original Brady Bunch and the life he spent with his family.
Bill was born in a large family with six siblings before him and three after him he was brought up in a family of fourteen people where he lived with his parents and elders. This became the first inspiration for his work and as he explains, “I have always been on stage, living in a large family you have to speak up to be fed or even heard.”
Brady has been a natural at comedy and he gives credit to his large family. It is perhaps the same reason that his specialty is interactive shows. His shows don’t only make people laugh but also engages them in a unique manner that keeps them involved in the show from the start to finish.
Bills style isn’t just unique but also developed a new style of comedy that many have been following till date. His top notch mannerism keeps his show for everyone in the house above 18 and below 90. Yet his forte is his famous freshness that he has managed to maintain for over 37 years. It is a feat not many have been able to accomplish.
Bill Brady has had his own weekly show since 1977 and he has been performing live at birthdays, clubs, casinos, corporate shows, TV, Radio, and festivals. His solid reputation built in over 3 decades backs him up every single time.
Bill is an accomplished writer and authored a book with fellow comedian Vince Vieceli titled, “Stand-up Comedy in Chicago”. This book covers over 2 decades of stand-up comedy in Chicago from the time when stand-up was a growing brand to the explosion in the comedy industry.

He is soft spoken yet witty and that makes him simply in-style and evergreen.
