Twin Cities stand-up comedian “Wild Bill” Bauer has died. He was 62.
Bauer, who performed at the first comedy show at Dubh Linn Pub in Duluth in 2007, died Wednesday night in his sleep, according to family and friends. He performed eight times at Dubh Linn, most recently in May along with friend and KFAN radio personality “Common Man” Dan Cole.
“He will certainly be missed at Dubh Linn,” comedian John Peterman, of Duluth, said today, “and by comedians and audiences throughout Minnesota and around the country.”
Bauer was an occasional guest on Cole’s Twin Cities-based radio show and the “Bob & Tom Show.” He made more than 25 televised stand-up appearances and had written for “The Jackie Thomas Show,” starring Tom Arnold.
“#RIP Wild Bill Bauer Very funny, hardworking Twin City comic and good man,” Arnold tweeted today. “Sitting with @JoelMadison telling Bill stories right now:)”
