He Got Into Recovery Almost Before He Was Out of Diapers: Recovery Comic Will Spottedbear's Story
Recovery Comedians, Comics Anonymous, Recovery Comedy, Recovery Comic, Clean and Sober Comedy

A second-generation member, Will has been clean since before he hit puberty; he was so advanced he hit bottom before most people started using. Literally growing up in recovery, Will has an unusual perspective on life. Rarely has any member been so clean and so dirty at the same time. In the Air Force, Will travelled the world, and developed a lethal sense of humor. After leaving the military, Will started pursuing stand-up comedy and quickly became a popular and sought-after comic in the Midwest.

Will has had a very diverse life, travelling from the Middle East to the Midwest. Will covers a turbulent childhood, life in the military and life afterward, as well as learning about his father’s family and Native American heritage. His no-holds-barred look at his world is wildly entertaining, and his personable attitude makes him well-received by any audience.

Will has a personable demeanor that off sets his rather rugged look (Rugged for the Midwest at least). His unforgiving material may sometimes be offensive, but is always hilarious. Will’s casual style and sharp material have proven to be greatly appreciated by his audiences, young and old; he can work any type of show.

Recovery Comedy:  What were you like as a kid?

Will Spottedbear:  So messed up I had to get clean. I’m not youth in recovery. I’m prepubescent in recovery.

Recovery Comedy:  What made you decide to become a stand-up comedian and how long have you been performing?

Will Spottedbear:  Everyone told me that I should do comedy and I live my life by anyone that double dares me.

Recovery Comedy:  Were you performing stand-up comedy before you got into recovery?

Will Spottedbear:  No. I started stand-up because of comedy. I had to learn to tell jokes because my stories were so depressing I needed a way to make them funny so I could share them.

Recovery Comedy:  Does your comedy have a message and if so what is it?

Will Spottedbear:  I talk about recovery and make fun of everything.

Recovery Comedy:  Who are your comedy idols?

Will Spottedbear:  Don Rickles, Richard Pryor, Christopher Titus, and George Carlin

Recovery Comedy:  Where does your inspiration for material come from?

Will Spottedbear:  People, life, death, relationships, Addicts and other dumb things

Recovery Comedy:  What is your joke writing process?

Will Spottedbear:  Pretty laid back and conversational. I talk about the most serious things in the least serious manner.

Recovery Comedy:  What is your kryptonite?

Will Spottedbear:  The pain and suffering that people inflict on themselves. The sadness that people bring upon themselves is an awful thing to see……Also gummy worms.

Recovery Comedy:  Is your family supportive of your comedy career?

Will Spottedbear:  Most are. Comedy is a weird thing because it can be looked at very positively or negatively. You can say “Wow you are living your dream and doing what you love” or you can just as easily say “So you didn’t become a Lawyer”.

Recovery Comedy:  Is comedy part of your healing process?

Will Spottedbear:  No I am dead inside and all my jokes reflect this.  I joke about the pain of life, love and the recovery process. Luckily my Sponsor and support group are all sociopaths so I get all the recovery without all the feelings.

Recovery Comedy:  What was your worst experience performing comedy?

Will Spottedbear:  I had a woman have an asthma attack during one of my shows. I was worried that I was actually going to kill her. Not sure how I could make an amends for literally killing during my show. 

Recovery Comedy:  What was your best experience performing comedy?

Will Spottedbear:  Every time I do a show and no one needs medical attention. So I am about 60/40.

Recovery Comedy:  What is your favorite joke?

Will Spottedbear:  That I used to be a Military Policeman. If you knew me, you’d get how funny it is.

Recovery Comedy:  What is your comedy dream?

Will Spottedbear:  Do die in a funny way. I imagine I will get shot by a sponsee’s girlfriend during a meeting. I’m guessing he will tell her he has to wait a year and I’ll get shot for it. It’ll be a funny way to go.
