ABOUT THE COMEDIANS
Dr. Bill Miller
They say laughter is the best medicine…and who knows that better than a Doctor. Dr. Bill Miller knows! He is a practicing physician & comedian, based in Chicago, has been board certified in Emergency Medicine and Anesthesiology.
While attending Northwestern University Medical School, Dr. Bill began performing at comedy clubs throughout Chicago and the Midwest. Soon he was an in-demand comedy club headliner…with appearances on Showtime, A&E, Comedy Tonight, WGN radio, and many more. When he is on stage, at a medical conference or comedy club, he exposes the comedic side of Medicine…and shares his take on doctors, health care, and patients.
He hysterically takes you into the emergency room, operating room, and medical offices and proves that doctors are people too. Through the eyes of a doctor, you will make rounds, perform consults, examine patients, and even be examined! Don’t be anxious though, Dr. Bill is in the house! His one-man show, “Bad Bedside Manner” is performed throughout Chicago land and medical conferences around the country.
Hari Rao‘s comedy draws upon 45 years of life experience to highlight the peculiarities of everyday living that we simply accept as given, as well as dissecting his own personal experiences that can best be described as “are you being serious?!”. His adventure in standup began in 2016 while his experience in entertainment spans two decades as a recording artist, a recurring theme in his comedy (his band’s song “Rewind” can be heard as the theme song to ABC’s The Goldbergs). Hari is a regularly featured performer at Zanies Comedy Clubs.
Ted Willson, one half of the popular online show That Checks Out, is a Chicago area native that regularly makes audiences laugh with his stories that are familiar, funny, and fortunate that they didn’t happen to you. He has built a following entertaining at clubs throughout the Midwest. Ted brings his unbelievable true stories to life with a polished wit and an endearing charm.
