As soon as Bil hits the stage you know that you’re in for one entertaining and fun show. He grabs the audience by the hand and takes them with him, as he tries to figure out just when he stopped being a fun guy and became a dad. Bil realizes that a lot more has changed than just the hairline and the waistline. He lets us in on all the not ready for prime time moments of family life that we’re not going to see on TV any time soon. The show is a no holds barred look at just how fatherhood took this first class, grade A slacker to the “I didn’t work 65 hours this week for you to ask for twenty dollars” guy that he is now. He is no less intense with his outlook on just what 15 years of marriage has taught him about both men and women, and the joys of cohabitation in modern-day America. From childhood to parenthood and all the creamy, fluffy filling in between, the audience experiences all through the eyes, ears, and throat of this gifted storyteller.
At the age of 15, Matt O’Nesti started his journey as a standup comedian (or sitdown comedian) and now at the age of 21, Matt is a raging alcoholic and a drug addict (just kidding). For the past 6 years, Wheels has been honing his craft with a mix of stories about his life and odd absurdist quips used as a means of conveying the message that life is genuinely hilarious and everything that happens to us can be funny (even the bad stuff like a disabled protest gone wrong). Matt has dabbled in various facets of the entertainment industry with hosting an online radio show/podcast, The Brew Crew, where guests ranged from writers for HBO shows to the head puppeteer on Team America: World Police and is also currently on the path to working as an independent filmmaker. As a comedian, Wheels has had the privilege to work at such comedy clubs as Dangerfield’s and the main room at Hilarities where he opened for T.J Miller. Matt has also opened for Greer Barnes, Nick Vatterott, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, and host of VH1’s That Metal Show, Don Jamieson.
