When you hear Willi go on and on about his family you are right there with him for the whole ride. He will take you to church, family reunions, weddings and funerals. You'll swear you never left the room.
After graduating high school in Alabama, Willi moved to Minnesota to attend college on a football scholarship at St. Cloud State University. After college and a brief professional career, Willi became an assistant basketball and football coach at St. Cloud State. In his five years of coaching, the Huskies won three basketball and one football championship.
C. Willi Myles got the comedy bug after coaching and traveling around the country scouting talent and meeting interesting people. A friend mentioned that a comedy club was opening and that they wanted him to host the shows because everyone knew him. Within two years he was spotted by the owner of a record label and was signed to a two year deal to open up for concerts throughout the Midwest.
Since that time his comedy resume reads like a who's who. He has performed and toured with: the OJAYS, TEMPTATIONS, EARTH, WIND & FIRE, THE BEACH BOYS, PAT BENATAR, TOBY KEITH, BONNIE RAITT, BILL COSBY, SINBAD and DENNIS MILLER.
His appetite for comedy can only be satisfied by his desire to be on stage in front of an audience. He was once asked when was he going to be on Leno or Letterman and he said, "Never! They only give you seven minutes; it takes me five minutes to get to my name."
This veteran performer will rock your stage like a Southern Baptist preacher auditioning for the last ticket to heaven.
