He relocated to Los Angeles in 1996  to perform with many of his SAK colleagues as "Houseful of Honkeys". During this time, he began to write and perform original comedy songs, and his first album, "Bill's Family Funtime", was recorded in 2001.  He performed a song from that album, "The Twin Song", on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend".  He also performed his "Funtime" songs at the Laugh Factory, Improv,  Comedy Store and the Cinegrill in Hollywood, CA, Rose's Turn in New York, NY, and The Riviera Casino and Nightclub in Las Vegas, NV.

He has worked for over 20 years in the piano bar circuit, currently performing at the Redhead Piano Bar in Chicago.

He is also an award-winning actor: in 2013, he received the prestigious Joseph Jefferson Award for excellence in Chicago theatre for Best Actor in a Musical for Porchlight Music Theatre's "A Class Act".   Other theatre credits in Chicago include Mercury Theatre's "The Producers", Porchlight's "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum", Chicago Shakespeare Theatre's "Aladdin" and Broadway in Chicago's "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee".
