In January 2012, Bill Crawford was named as the newest full-time member of Pittsburgh’s iconic WDVE Morning Show. Joining Randy Baumann every morning from 6-10 am. Bill is a fresh voice on the morning drive, but he’s no stranger to DVE having been a friend and regular on-air guest for the last six years. A Pittsburgh native, Crawford has been making waves on the national scene and has quickly become one of the country’s most promising young comedians. Bill has performed in the TBS Just For Laughs comedy festival in Chicago and was one of the featured comics in the LOL Lounge Showcase in 2011. Crawford came up through the ranks at the Pittsburgh Improv, going from open mics to headlining and selling out shows. Since 2010, Bill has been traveling across the country doing stand-up. He’s performed in Seattle, New York, Dallas, Miami, Chicago & everywhere in between with Jim Bruer (SNL, Half-Baked) Steve Byrne (Sullivan and Son), Bryan Callen (The Hangover) and Bert Kreischer (Burt The Conqueror, Trip Flip). Bill’s comedy is all about perspective and sarcasm. He mixes a blend of intelligence and the ridiculous, taking on a variety of topics and turning them inside out. His sharp wit and comedic style create humorous observations from the everyday life of a young guy with two kids trying to figure it all out. If you live in the city and haven’t seen his live club act, it’s well worth the price of admission!
