Bill Brioux Reviews New Billy Van Biography

Bill also mentions that Brent Butt wanted Van for the role of "Oscar" on Corner Gas.

(The original link I posted appears to produce a warning,  although I don't know why;   so here is a diiferent one.)

Sorry guys.  I don't know why the links are triggering warnings.  Myself and other have posted links to Bill's work in the past;  without any problems.

Re: Bill Brioux Reviews New Billy Van Biography

It's a shame his career hit the decline of variety shows in the 1970s. He would have been great either as host of either a variety show or a straight-up sketch show - he easily could have hosted a show like Bizarre but that show was actually an American show that happened to be produced in Canada - and that Glenn-Warren bought into - so the headliner etc were Americans.
