Wil Anderson is a well-renowned stand-up comedian, best known for his imaginative and high-speed comedic routines. Performing more than a hundred shows in Australia and throughout the world each year, Wil delivers enthusiasm and conviction with every performance, with topics ranging anywhere from politics to pop.

A worldwide hit, Wil has spent the majority of his time in the last 6 years performing north of the equator, in Ireland, London, Edinburgh, Montreal and London, also appearing regularly as a guest on Chelsea Lately – the well known and extremely popular late night comedy talk show in the US.

Wil has hosted The Gruen Transfer series since 2008 which is the highest rated program on the ABC. It was this role that saw him nominated for a Gold Logie in 2010 and also inspired the creation of popular spin-off shows Gruen Sweat, Gruen Nation and Gruen Planet. Gruen Nation recorded a 4 week special in 2013 which was an in-depth look into the Australian Election Campaign.

After having a year off in 2014, Gruen made a much-anticipated return on the 9th of September 2015.

In 2012 Wil won his third successive Bulmer’s People’s Choice Award at The Melbourne Comedy festival, after touring around Australia performing his live show Wilarious to sold out venues across the nation. This tour earned him rave reviews and he was named as one of the hottest acts in comedy by legendary actor, writer, producer and comedian John Cleese – a recognition that proved that Wil is at the top of his game as a world class comedian.

Over the last two years, Wil has spent the majority of his time focusing on his stand-up comedy, touring Australia with his popular solo shows, while also travelling to the US and Canada, sinking his teeth into the busy club scene. He has performed in numerous cities across North America including, Alaska, Portland, Denver and San Francisco. He has also had the pleasure of performing for a season at the SOHO theatre in London.

In 2013 Wil’s live show GoodWil debuted at the Adelaide Fringe Festival before settling in at the prominent Princess Theatre throughout the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. His national GoodWil tour also sold out around Australia.

2013 was a great year for Wil, with him being invited to perform alongside some of the best comedians in the world at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. He also hosted a television special alongside the event for Channel 7, titled Wil Does Montreal. This gave viewers a behind the scenes view of the festival and also provided a personal insight into the personalities of the performers.

Alongside his live performing, Wil has discovered a new passion in podcasting. He hosts an extremely popular podcast entitled TOFOP (Thirty Odd Foot of Podcast) with his good friend Charlie Clausen.

This podcast has been so successful, it has one of the highest download rates for a comedy podcast, and has seen Wil and Charlie invited to participate in the invite-only LA Podcast Festival. Wil has also began another podcast called Wilosophy, where he invites special guests on the show to delve into their philosophies on life. To date these guests have included Judith Lucy, Dr Karl, Todd Sampson and Adam Spencer.

2014 was another big year for Wil. He began with his true passion of performing live shows around the US. After that he returned to his home country Australia and embarked on yet another hit.
