**THIS IS NOT A BALLET. THIS IS ADULT COMEDY WITHOUT THE ADULT LANGUAGE.
Comedian William Lee Martin brings his annual Christmas Standup Comedy Spectacular, The Return of the Nutcracker, back to the Historic Palace Theatre on Friday, December 3. Whether he’s talking proudly of his youngest daughter’s designation as “class-clown,” or sharing the twists and turns of his health, Martin humbly reveals his true self for the sake of a good laugh. Martin’s storytelling approach takes audiences on a fulfilling journey, leaving them with “favorite routines” more than “favorite punchlines.”
With his signature cowboy hat, boots and Texas drawl, it would be easy to lump the blue-eyed, 6-foot-2-inch Martin into the category of “another guy doing a country act.” Drawing from real life experiences, Martin’s vibrant routine reflects life as a husband, father and friend. That authenticity is connecting with mainstream America, crossing cultural lines and social status boundaries. His humor is sharp, original and occasionally laced with sarcasm and innuendo, but without the overt adult language prevalent with so many in today’s comedy landscape.
When Martin’s not touring theaters and clubs, he can be found as a top-rated headliner on Carnival Cruise Lines or hosting his weekly podcast for broadcast, called A Stand Up Dad, where he interviews celebrities and news-makers about the state of being a modern-day dad. His comedy specials can also be found on major streaming platforms.
Martin and his wife Michele also operate Cowboys Who Care, a non-profit organization providing smiles, support and free cowboy hats to kids with cancer or life-threatening illnesses.
