Internationally renowned cowboy, performer, actor, and speaker, Will Roberts, has joined the National Day of the Cowboy 501c3 Organization in the role of an Official Spokesperson. Roberts is well known for his high-energy entertainment, spiked with down-home humor and perceptive content, highlighted by his astonishing trick roping skills. As a former featured artist of the famed Cirque du Soleil, in Las Vegas, he brings the western arts of trick roping, gun spinning and whip-cracking alive with his intensely interactive, fast-paced performances.
Will has performed his western act on stages and venues throughout the world. He creates a stunning entertainment spectacle infused with his own brand of humor, customized to the themes and needs of each event at which he performs. Roberts says he understands each event is unique and he always works to make every event one to remember. He has been called the “modern day Will Rogers,” because of his extensive work in film, TV, and radio, as well as his syndicated daily humor. Roberts even holds a Guinness world record with his six shooters.
Will prides himself on bringing good sense and simplicity to America through his work. He has traveled the world on his “Common Sense Tour,” of which he wryly observed, “Common sense ain’t so common anymore.” Now don’t be fooled; Will Roberts is a Cowboy. Originally from Illinois, he moved to Central California as a teenager, following the directive to “Go west young man.” The values and skills of the West are in his blood and have remained his true passion throughout his life.
Will currently resides in Winchester, California, with his amazing wife and two wonderful kids. He frequently works in Hollywood as a union actor and weapons and stunt man. From theater productions, nightclubs, rodeos, and circuses, to corporate conferences, film productions and private events, Will Roberts makes the world his stage!
Roberts observes that he has invested a good twenty-something years of his life promoting the western arts and striving to keep cowboy culture alive. “The chance to be associated and work with the National Day of the Cowboy organization is the dream of a lifetime. Many hope and dream as a kid to one day be a cowboy and I am one of those kids, so to be able to focus my energy and passion in support of the Day of the Cowboy makes me feel pretty darn good. “
Will Roberts joins four other official spokespersons (Kelsee Brady Bradshaw, Lee Anderson, Dr. Buc Montgomery, and Hotshot Johnny) and one official spokeshorse (Concho) for the National Day of the Cowboy nonprofit organization, whose mission is to contribute to the preservation of America’s cowboy culture and pioneer heritage so that the history and culture which the National Day of the Cowboy legislative bill honors, can be shared and perpetuated for the public good, through education, the arts, literature, celebrations, gatherings, rodeos, and other community activities.
