The silent motorcycle stud, Slater, in SUPERSTAR. The goofball astronaut Fred Z. Randall, in ROCKETMAN. The whale calling, Sonar, in DOWN PERISCOPE, or Roberta, the ugliest red head in the world in SORORITY BOYS.

Williams is also seen regularly on Late Night with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Late Night with Conan O'Brian.

Williams has also done solo Stand Up Comedy Specials for HBO, Comedy Central, CTV, and CBC. Other television credits include his own sitcom Simon, for the WB, as well as a co-starring role on The Geena Davis Show.

A live comedy CD and an upcoming DVD comedy special are just two of his latest projects. The third is something new for Williams, his first music CD.
