Considered Chicago’s premier queer comedian, Bill Cruz has become a pillar of the Chicago Stand-Up Comedy scene with his experience of more than 8 years. Bill Cruz is a native of Denver, Colorado (and flaming Broncos Fan) who originally moved to Chicago in 1999 upon graduating from the University of Colorado, Boulder to pursue a career in Theatre. 4 years later, he started doing stand-up comedy. Starting out in small rooms, the man simply known as “The Gay Mexican” started making waves in the Chicago Comedy scene, performing at the Lincoln Lodge, Zanies Comedy Club, Chicago Underground, Laugh Factory Chicago, and numerous Mikey-O Comedy Shows. Not to be contained, Bill has spread his wings performing all across Midwest at Colleges and Clubs, and finally hitting the coasts in NY as well as LA, including appearing in OUTLAUGH: The Gay and Lesbian Comedy Festival, the Cleveland Comedy Festival, and most recently The Just for Laugh Chicago Comedy Festival.
