Terry & Bruce’s Excellent 52 Year Comedy Adventure

Marc Yaffee

Williams & Ree Aka The Indian & The White Guy’s Success is No Joke

How Does That Happen? – Episode 13

Bruce Williams and Ree a.k.a. The Indian and the White Guy have been performing together for 52 years.  As a comedy duo, Bruce Williams (The White Guy) and Terry Ree (The Indian) have outlasted disco, polyester, Reaganomics, Buick, the WHL, the XFL, AOL, two Bush presidencies, Circuit City, Saturn, and Southern Pacific Railroad.


The Power of Music And Comedy

From their early days as musicians at Black Hills State University in Spearfish South Dakota to multiple television appearances and thousands of live shows, Bruce and Terry show that a little bit of luck and a lot of talent can go a long way.  With over a half-century under their belts, Williams and Ree can now lay claim as the longest actively performing comedy duo in history, no small feat given the challenge of creating relevant songs, jokes and banter that can be volleyed back and forth at the high level that Bruce and Terry do. 

Rubbing Elbows and Taking Names

They’ve opened for Garth Brooks, had a cooking show with Florence Henderson (Mrs. Brady from the Brady Bunch), and performed from International Falls, Minnesota to Las Vegas.   Through it all, they’ve maintained their love of comedy, music, and performing together.  52-years later, their chemistry, banter, and timing are still as strong as ever.

They’ve made numerous TV appearances over the years and were series regulars on The Nashville Network’s County Kitchen with Florence Henderson (Mrs Brady form The Brady Bunch ). Their comedy albums include “The Best of Williams and Ree”, “Taking Reservations” and “Way Up Norsk”. They also made two independent films; “Williams and Ree, The Movie” and “Totem Ree-Call”
