RED WING – Join comedy duo Williams and Ree for a night of laughs at the Sheldon on Saturday, Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $29 for adults and $17 for students.
America's favorite music and comedy duo Bruce Williams & Terry Ree, often referred to as "The Indian and the White Guy," have sustained a career over 30 years packing casinos, clubs, and arenas from Niagara Falls to Las Vegas with their ever-changing routine that --more times than not--steers away from the off-color Indian jokes that originally established the duo.
Williams and Ree met in 1968 at Black Hills State College in Spearfish, SD where they began playing together in a band where they often filled time between their songs with their unique brand of humor. After realizing that the humor became a bigger draw than the music, the comedy team was born.
Polishing their performances at venues such as the world famous Comedy Store in Los Angeles during the 1970s and testing new material with the likes of Robin Williams and David Letterman, Williams and Ree discovered their natural ability to play off one another. They have since shared the stage with acts such as Garth Brooks, The Oak Ridge Boys, and Tim McGraw in addition to hosting COUNTRY KITCHEN with Florence Henderson, a show that entertained audiences for over 10 years.
The recent resurgence of comedy shows such as the Blue Collar Comedy, Last Comic Standing, Whose Line Was It Anyway, and TBS's "Minding The Store" proves that audiences nationwide are still entertained by comedians who have the innate ability to find humor in everyday life. By combining pop culture trends into a fast-paced, lively show, full of zings interspersed with songs, Williams and Ree prove they have what it takes to get an audience going. This winning combo has allowed Williams and Ree to entertain thousands, performing over 300 shows every year.
"The truth of the matter is that we pick on everyone, no matter what their background," said Ree. "We do songs, we do comedy. Actually, I don't like to label it comedy. I think we entertain people."
Regardless of the classification, with over three decades of experience, countless performances, and hundreds of zings Williams and Ree prove that they have developed a camaraderie on-stage that appeals to all ages and purely entertains.
