Laugh it Up this NYE at Downtown Cowtown at The Isis Theatre

Fort Worth Stockyards

Celebrate New Year’s Eve with Fort Worth native William Lee Martin! You’ve seen his comedy specials on Amazon Prime and AppleTV, heard him on Sirius/XM, laughed with him on Carnival Cruise Lines, plus followed him on TikTok, YouTube, and on Facebook LIVE during his “4 pm Daily Talk Y’all”. This father of five is a self-proclaimed All American mutt – a mixed breed who doesn’t fit neatly into any single box physically, politically, or philosophically. With fresh material and hilarious new stories, he’s not afraid to step on toes but still connects with folks who share his everyday problems in always changing America. His friends still call him by his nickname “Cowboy Bill”, but nevertheless, this comedian will have you laughing till your sides split and you’re wiping away tears. A great way to ring in the New Year!
