Bill Wood is a comedian, actor, writer, and teacher. His most notable comedy cred comes from working as part of Picnicface, a now defunct comedy troupe. More recently Bill starred as Frank, the guidance counselor, on CBC’s Mr. D. Wood is an experienced stand-up comedian who loves writing and performing comedy that ranges from absurd stories, to wacky one liners and gripping over-shares.
