Hailing from Chicago, IL, Bil Dwyer, like many hearty Midwesterners, is a very private person and likes to keep things to himself. Unlike many hearty Midwesterners, he is forced to compose bios of himself written in the third person. Bil’s career has covered many facets of show business, from performing to writing to commercial voiceover work.
Bil is an accomplished standup comic, who has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, and his very own half hour standup special, Comedy Central Presents: Bil Dwyer. His takes on marriage, kids and family are hip and sardonic, and yet beneath lies a certain odd sweetness.
Bil has hosted GSN’s I’ve Got a Secret, Comedy Central’s BattleBots, Fox Sports’ Ultimate Fan League, PAX-TV’s Dirty Rotten Cheaters, GSN’s Extreme Dodgeball and MTV’s The 70’s House (as mock game show host, Bert Van Styles).
Besides appearing on great television shows like The Larry Sanders Show and Ally McBeal, Bil has also been in such forgettable films as Ski School 2, The Bogus Witch Project, and What Planet are You From? Writing with sitcom star/television producer Christopher Titus, Bil co-created a show based on his stand-up comedy called Back After This for Sony Pictures Television.
A regular commentator on various cable shows, he is most often recognized for his work on VH1’s highly-rated I Love the… series. Bil was also seen as a finalist on Season 4 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing and starred in Cartoon Network’s live action/animation hybrid series, Out of Jimmy’s Head. He currently recurs as Valerie Bertinelli’s ex-husband on the highly-rated TV Land sitcom, Hot in Cleveland.
