Wild Bill's up to something new again! Doesn't he ever stop?

Las Vegas Sun Veteran Columnist***

Addressed to Bill Cooksey, Aug. 29,1994

"To Whom it may concern:
The undersigned has been a critic and
columnist for the Las Vegas Sun these
past twenty-seven years and am in my
twenty-first year teaching a course in
HOTEL ENTERTAINMENT at UNLV's College
of Hotel Administration. In addition,
my background includes top executive
positions with major recording companies;
production of Nites of Stars, and telethons,
and most recently Mariachi festivals in
Arizona, California, and Nevada.
I recently wrote and produced a play
starring Brian Keith.

___________ Bill Cooksey came to my attention when
he appeared in Las Vegas.
THE FIRST ACT and ONLY act that I had
seen other than SHECKY GREENE in
New Orleans, circa 1952, that could
go five and six hours non-stop and
not repeat his material.

Cooksey is a person to person entertainer.
He reaches and touches everyone in his
audience. Some of his fans here lasted
the entire night except for those
excursions to the bathroom.

I RECOMMEND HIM UNEQUIVOCALLY,
AN OUTSTANDING PERFORMER IN ONE.
I always look forward to his return
performances in Las Vegas.
God bless!

Y E A H,
BUT CAN HE PLAY?

Wild Bill spent 25 YEARS on the Las Vegas/Florida circuit entertaining millions of satisfied customers on stage, TV and radio. As the opening comedy act in concert for stars like

Chuck Berry, Freddy Fender and Blood Sweat and Tears,

he motivated crowds of up to 25,000 people at a time. Also being a successful Nashville recording artist, a Las Vegas journalist and a Guinness Book musical world record breaker which is documented in his book, "I'LL CLIMB THAT MOUNTAIN" , that can be read right on the Internet. Here's what one of America's most famous comedians has to say about Wild Bill's adventure:

"Wow, what a story!
Glad you climbed the Mt.
Best of luck in future.
Those were the days, weren't they?
Take care,
David Brenner
