Wil Anderson 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. His most recent live shows Man vs Wil (2011), Wilful Misconduct (2010) and Wilosophy (2009, also the title of his debut DVD) have garnered rave reviews around the world.
He was the back to back winner of the People's Choice Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2010 and 2011, back to back winner of GQ Media Performer of the Year in 2011 and 2010, and the winner of the Helpmann Award in 2010 for Best Comedy Performer.
Previously host of ABC TV's AFI Award winning program The Glass House, Wil is currently the host of the ABC's runaway hit Gruen Planet (formerly The Gruen Transfer), now in its fourth season. He is also a frequent guest on Network Ten's Good News Week.
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, was a bestseller.
Client Comments for Wil Anderson
Wil Anderson travels from New South Wales Australia
- Wil was fantastic with overcoming technical issues during the Awards which were completely out of his control. He dealt with this with humor and without missing a beat which added to the seamless presentation and delivery of his event component.
- Anderson is a loose cannon, fast, funny and full of razor-sharp observations.
The Age, Melbourne
- Anderson is, without doubt, one of the nation's finest comedic talents.
- Due to weather conditions at Hamilton Island, we were unable to get Wil to the intended event. It was fantastic that he was flexible in terms of going to the Melb dinner that we'd quickly cobbled together for those that could not land on the island. This was a difficult situation for us, and Wil's surprise performance went a huge way to making the best of a difficult situation. All feedback was exceptional.
