Cadillac Bill & the Creeping Bent journey to the deep dark recesses of Hamilton ... THE FINAL FRONTIER!
Glittery curtains, bubbles, fascinating chat about stuff, a stuffed goose and The Creeping Bent Orchestra. This is the Cadillac Bill Show.
The show is a Hamilton Canada, based variety show that is entertaining, unusual and informative. It covers many types of topics but usually off-beat subject matter in a unique style. The show is about all aspects of Hamilton life. From music to paranormal investigations, from car shows to U.F.O.s, Hammercity Roller Girls to Dungeon Divas. The Cadillac Bill Show delves deep into the odd and sublime underbelly of Hamilton. It’s not really a comedy, but it is funny. Musical guests have included Ginger St. James, Tom Wilson, Robert Gordon, Jack Pedler and Anvil.
