Billy Hipkins (Author/Performer) has worn plenty of hats in his showbiz life. Acting career highlights: On Broadway for ten whole weeks in “Anna Karenina-the musical”, touring America as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, and lines on every soap opera that began with a vowel. His first solo show, a collaboration with Perry Dell’Aquila, ‘The ALSO-RAN (For the BENEFIT of Miss JENNIE GOURLAY)’ was awarded Best Educational Piece at the United Solo Theatre Festival, and he was named ‘Best Playwright of a Solo Show at the Fresh Fruit Festival, both in NYC. Billy recently took that show to Charleston SC to appear in the Piccolo Spoleto Festival and he hopes that it will go further in the future, who knows? He has happily worked in the wardrobe departments of 22 Broadway shows to date, which has allowed him the opportunity to write, stage, costume, and build 15 Bonnets for BCEFA’s annual Bonnet show (several award wins there too). He has had a loyal Facebook friend base for years and through their encouragement he has posted countless videos showcasing his unique sense of humor. One of these struck a cord with several of these friends and when they asked him to let it go public, it went viral and has been shared over 14K times and viewed over 847K times on Facebook as well as over 17K times on his YouTube channel as of this writing. He is working to build a following on the YouTubes and become the first pre-senior to achieve interweb fame. Please wish him luck and check out the links to all that has been mentioned!
