Before he was discovered nationally he was known in my neck of the woods.

That is from a show called Almost Live that used to follow, actually it still follows, Saturday Night Live, though now they are ten year old or more reruns.

ETA: That is where he first appeared as Bill Nye the Science Guy.

Why does that first video say his name is Jeff Bimmel? His wiki page says his real name is William Nye.

Ahhh. I thought the character was "Speed Walker". I guess Jeff is his civilian secret identity.

Speed Walker was a recurring character on Almost Live. There are quite a few clips of it on YouTube.
