Comedian Cowboy Bill Martin
Comedian Cowboy Bill Martin has been busy these days adding other words to describe his brand such as television writer, songwriter, children’s book author, screenwriter, philanthropist and designer of even his own clothing line.
To say he is busy these days is an understatement. He's been all over the world, sometimes as the headliner of his own US tour, sometimes as a cruise-ship comedian, other times on good will tours to soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq. And one of his latest acts is, well, a hat act -- but perhaps not in the way you're thinking.
Earlier this month, Martin and his fiancée picked up a U-Haul, drove to Garland, and loaded up nearly 300 hats donated by Resistol and drove them the nearly 2000 mile round trip to Camp COCO, a summer camp for boys and girls who have cancer. This was part of Martin's work with an organization that he founded, called Cowboys Who Care Foundation, which provides cowboy hats to children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
JD Ryan with CBS Radio, calls Martin’s act “raucous, rowdy and nothing you’ve come to expect with a ‘country’ comedian. It’s like spending time late night at the kitchen table with your cousin, laughing until you cry. Then you find out he’s a big, loud Texan with a great big heart.”
