Performance Style of Billy Mitchell
A most versatile performer, clean enough for day-time TV, Billy Mitchell can also handle the toughest crowds and the strangest situations. Quick witted and well-read, Billy can adapt to almost any circumstance and create fresh original material. Billy’s material is mostly “clean enough for church”, but he likes to toss in a little ribaldry when appropriate.
Why hire Billy Mitchell?
Billy has custom-written material for gastroenterologists, oenophiles and software publishers, amused the American Trade Consulate, and upset the US Air Force. Billy Mitchell also creates custom-written sketches, game-shows and corporate bafflegab presentations with PowerPoint accompaniment. He calls this “Corporate Fraud”. In addition to stand-up, acting and improvisation, Billy has developed a number of characters that deliver bogus presentations for corporate clients. Tucked amid the actual presentations at a conference or placed as a keynote speaker after dinner, these ersatz experts insinuate themselves as the real thing, complete with PowerPoint slide shows that seem real…at first.
Seamlessly blending fact and fiction, the illusion is complete – for a while – but the presentation gradually reveals its true nature as zany ideas creep in:
Combat ordnance adapted for the construction industry,
Electronic mind control for employees,
Quantum and relativistic effects in accounting,
Generating electricity from human workers movement,
“The Seven Chakras of Sales.”
And much, much more.
Billy takes the time to develop custom-written presentations tailored to your group. He will incorporate the jargon and style that make him believable, and the pay-off is hearty belly-laughs.
