Wil Anderson

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 through one of the most wonderful comedic imaginations in the world. 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.

In the last few years Wil has performed in every corner of the USA, as well as Canada, Ireland, Edinburgh, and in London’s West End. In 2013, he was invited to perform at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, performing alongside some of the world’s best comedians. Whilst there, Wil hosted a television special for Channel 7, Wil Does Montreal, giving us behind the scenes access to this prestigious festival and some of its performers. He performed at this festival three years running.

Since 2008 Wil has hosted ABC TV’s The Gruen Transfer series- a role that saw him nominated for a Gold Logie in 2010, and spawned spin offs, Gruen Nation, Gruen Sweat and Gruen Planet.

In conjunction with his live comedy and TV work, Wil has discovered another love – podcasting. He co-hosts the popular TOFOP podcast with his friend Charlie Clausen, and hosts Wilosophy – where he gets interesting guests on the show to talk about their philosophy on life. Guests have included Adam Spencer, Dr Karl, Judith Lucy and Todd Sampson.
