For the last six years, veteran Detroit comic Bill Hildebrandt has been performing regularly in Las Vegas at the Riviera Hotel & Casino’s comedy club, but he still calls the Midwest “my orbit.” “This is where I like to live, and where I do most of my work,” he said.
When he was in high school, Hildebrandt performed Shakespeare with the famed Detroit Resident Artist Theater, a professional troupe that included comedian and actor Robin Williams. After high school he worked for a Detroit television station, then attended Eastern Michigan University on a broadcasting scholarship.
Following college, he somehow found himself working for an automotive supply firm in Brighton, where he spent 12 years and wound up as a vice president.
After starting a company called Haunted Systems, which built and supplied props for haunted houses, he began doing stand-up comedy.
His first paid appearance was with Rosie O’Donnell at the Mainstreet Comedy Showcase in Ann Arbor nearly 20 years ago. Since then he has worked steadily in clubs and in Detroit television, appearing with everyone from Drew Carey to Soupy Sales. He’s appeared on Dick Clark’s TV’s Bloopers and Practical Jokes, and in many TV and radio commercials.
