Bill Squire would rather be known as the person who died on a rollercoaster – not the person who was too fat to ride it. But we know him as a clever and likable comedian hailing from Ohio. Winner of the 2011 “Car Crash Comedy Contest” on SiriusXm’s Opie and Anthony Show, Squire is a fearless comic who is just seemingly innocent enough to pull off jokes about revenge-via-leukemia and calling his sister-in-law a post-op transvestite.
Sarcasm Bus, Squire’s debut comedy CD, was recorded in 2008 at the Winchester in Lakewood, OH and has that delicious small-club sound to it (I’m always a fan of being able to actually hear the audience’s comments). The CD contains ten tracks of gut-busting humor that definitely puts Squire in the category of underrated. In telling the story of a parking-lot war between him and an old lady, Squire seamlessly transitions into his opinions on CPR:
“When you know CPR, they give you a card that basically says you can save lives. But I don’t think you should get a card if you can save lives; I think you should get a card if your life is worth saving.”
Squire’s credits are probably just as underrated as his humor. In 2008 he was part of the Mitch Across America tribute to Mitch Hedburg, a nationwide tour that celebrated the life of Mitch Hedburg and the release of his last album. He’s also been featured on Comedy Central – albeit, slightly non-traditionally. In 2009, he won the “Show Us Your Best” contest and had his stand up clip aired on Comedy Central and featured on comedycentral.com. That’s certainly one way to do it. by Angie Frissore read Angie’s full review here. Under the Gun Review
