William Dawes "Bill" Schulz (born August 14, 1975) is an American journalist and television personality, best known for being on the Fox News late-night show Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld.

Schulz is also a freelance writer and a former senior editor of Stuff Magazine.[1]

Early life[edit]

Schulz was born William Dawes Schulz in Lake Forest, Illinois. He has two brothers, Alfred and Jonathan, and was raised Catholic. He attended high school in Illinois at Lake Forest Academy, and in 1998 received a BA in Print Journalism from Emerson College.[2]

Red Eye[edit]

From its debut in 2007 until 2013, Schulz was a regular panelist, writer, and producer on Red Eye w Greg Gutfeld. Serving as host Greg Gutfeld's "repulsive sidekick," who was routinely the target of Gutfeld's running gags, Schulz often looked directly into the camera (even when he was not being talked to) with his signature "crazy-eyed look," along with frequently waving to the television viewing audience. Schulz provided the voice for an anthropomorphism of The New York Times newspaper, named "Pinch" (a reference to Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr., current publisher of the Times). Schulz also provided irreverent "man-on-the-street" segments featured on Red Eye, often conducted in Times Square and occasionally at special events. One included him joining the Occupy Wall Street protest on its first day and interviewing the crowd while making bizarre protests himself.[3]

His final appearance on Red Eye was on November 7, 2013, and his departure (for undisclosed reasons) was officially announced on November 22.[4]

Cameo on Glenn Beck's TV program[edit]

In April 2009, Schulz made a notable cameo on Glenn Beck's TV program, Glenn Beck. Beck described Schulz as the "average American" and pretended to pour gasoline (actually water) on him from a red container during Beck's monologue about the effects of President Barack Obama's policies. Beck discussed setting Schulz on fire.[5][6]

Schulz' rap lyrics[edit]

During the April 11, 2013 episode of The Five, Dana Perino, aka 'Tiny D Day-P', responded to Jay-Z's Cuba rap track with her own rap, which was written by Bill Schulz.[7][8][9][10] Perino raps Schulz' lyrics:

Well my name is Tiny-D, and I'm here to say, I bust funky-fresh rhymes in a major way. So I'm white like Casper, got a dog named Jasper, and if you don't think Beyonce fears me, go ahead and ask her. So if you love Castro, stick with Jay-Z, but if you love your freedom, pick Day-P.
