Faith. Family. Fun.
William Lee Martin is a storytelling stand-up comedian who just wants to make you laugh after a long day. He’s a regular at the Grand Ole Opry and the MGM in Las Vegas and has been touring since 1996. During the 2020 pandemic, his following on social media exploded with his positive and upbeat “4 o’clock Daily Talk” on Facebook and other platforms.
"The Texas Original." sells out venues around the country. He has written and produced three, one-hour television comedy specials including “Let the Laughter Roll” which aired on CMT, plus “Standing in the Middle” and “The Nutcracker: a Christmas Special based on his Vasectomy” which are currently streaming on Amazon Prime, Apple TV and the Comedy Dynamics Network. Lately, he has dabbled in acting doing commercials for companies like Uniden and Texas Ag Credit plus look for him in speaking roles in films like the Christian based comedy, "W.W.J.R." and the compelling independent film, "300 Salvage."
He is a Christian and a comedian but not a Christian comedian. He is relatively clean but is disarmingly clever. (Although it may not be suitable for younger audiences). He resonates with people because he looks, talks, and acts like a huge demographic of this country without having an agenda, being negative, or complaining about things.
Family and friends still affectionately call him by his nickname, "Cowboy Bill."
He's proud of his 5th generation Texas upbringing but most proud of his family. He's married to wife, Michele with one L, and they have a big blended family of 5 kids, 4 grandsons and two great dogs.

Growing up I wanted to be a thespian. In 2019 I made it official.
I started my acting journey in 2019. I'm now just waiting on my call from Yellowstone or any of it's 212 spinoffs. For the record, I can ride, shoot and rope a little. And I can play Kevin Costner's cousin.

EVERY COMEDIAN WANTS TO BE A SINGER
I don't sing in my act. But my first love is music. I've been writing real songs since I was 5 (most of them not funny intentionally). In all, I've written about 1,500 songs...here are some of the best ones. Some were written with some tremendously talented co-writers. Some I wrote alone. ALL ARE READY FOR YOU TO RECORD, RELEASE AND MAKE THEM INTO A HIT!
