Combining everyday people with everyday humor, C. Willi Myles is a storyteller for all people. Whether you hear Myles talking about his family or his first experience ice fishing in a Minnesota winter, you are right there with him for the whole ride.
Myles moved from Alabama to Minnesota to attend St. Cloud State University on a football scholarship. After college and a brief professional career, he became an assistant basketball and football coach at St. Cloud State. Myles got the comedy bug when a friend told him about a comedy club that was looking for an entertainer to host its shows. Within two years, he was spotted by the owner of a record label and signed to a two-year contract to open concerts throughout the Midwest.
Myles has opened for many of the top musical and comedy acts throughout the country and performs regularly on cruise ships, and at casinos and in concert with some of the biggest names in entertainment. He has toured with Bill Cosby, Dennis Miller, Toby Keith, Aretha Franklin, The OJays, The Temptations, Fleetwood Mac, and the legendary Ray Charles. And he is always a big hit on the college and corporate scene.
His clients include Michigan State, University of Iowa, Best Buy, General Mills, and Jostens.
