Stand Up Comedy

Stand Up Comedy with Will Spottedbear

Will Spottedbear grew up fast and weird on the mean streets of Pittsburgh-- which has certainly provided an unusual perspective on life. Having survived inner city public schools, the Middle East, and his uncommonly eccentric family, Spottedbear credits the Air Force for developing his lethal sense of humor. After serving in the Security Forces, he left the military in 2008 to pursue a career in comedy.
