Comedian available for hire, based in New South Wales
Wil is a stand up first and foremost, touring Australia and the world at every opportunity, performing more than a hundred shows a year. His stand up is a densely written, high-speed ride though one of the most wonderful comedic imaginations in the country. Politics, pop and the banal come together in a Wil Anderson routine, always delivered with more conviction and enthusiasm than any man’s vocal chords can take.
Since 2008 Wil has been the host and executive producer of the ABC (Australian Broadcast Company) TV's highest rating program "The Gruen Transfer series" - a role that saw him nominated for a Gold Logie in 2010, and also won Best Entertainment Show at the AACTA awards in 2011.
In amongst the TV hosting, and constant touring, Wil writes a highly popular regular column for Australia’s most highly read magazine, The Sunday Magazine, His first book, ‘Survival Of The Dumbest’ [Random House] is still on the bestseller list.
But it’s on stage where Wil is in his element: 2012 saw Wil busy touring his hit live show Wilarious to sold out venues around Australia, earning rave reviews and winning his third consecutive Bulmer's People’s Choice Award at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, not to mention being named one of comedy’s hottest acts by none other than John Cleese.
