Billy Ray Bauer

Why book Billy Ray Bauer?

I'm from the Detroit, MI area with 25 years experience. I've headlined at dozens of comedy clubs: the Comedy Castle, Crackers, and casinos: Kewadin, Odawa, and Baymills in Michigan Edgewater and Casablanca in Nevada. I've performed for major corporations: MicroSoft, GM, Zeibart, and organizations: Michigan Assessors, Macomb County Treasurer's. I've appeared with Tim Allen, Drew Carey, Lewis Black, and The Smothers Brothers. Genuine laughs from a guy who's been married for 31 years and survived raising 4 boys and 2 dogs. I can work to audiences of all ages and walks of life. I've performed for church groups and bikers and I'm available to perform in all 50 states and Canada.






I booked Billy Ray for a private birthday for my wife and guests. I thoroughly enjoyed his routine as did my guests. Very professional, charismatic guy. I highly recommend him. He spent some time with my guests before and after his show. We will remember this for years to come. Thanks Billy, I appreciate it!

Straight up....Billy Ray Bauer (BRB) is a legend!

A group of 'young professionals' had BRB perform some of his comedy and BRB didn't disappoint. He knew the crowd, rocked some amazing jokes and had an encore performance that has kept us laughing ever since.

Don't play russian (chat) roulette with your comedians...choose BRB!

I gotta say Billy Ray did a fantastic job honing his routine for our senior community! It's not easy to be SOOO funny while keeping it clean at the same time. Fantastic, absolutely the best comedian I've ever seen live, and I've seen a lot!
