Some of you will know Wil Anderson as “the bloke who sits in the middle on that ABC-TV show with the weird name” (The Gruen Transfer); or “the one who wasn’t Corinne or Hughesy on that show that used to get in trouble all the time” (The Glass House); or maybe even “the guy who hosts Spicks and Specks” (That’s actually Adam Hills but he gets that a lot.) You might have also heard him on the radio as the “Wil” part of Wil and Lehmo on Triple M, a show that was described by one critic as “being on the same time as Hamish and Andy”. For five years he also got up at a time most people consider “last night” to be “the one who knew lots about Buffy but nothing about maths” on the much-loved Triple J Breakfast Show with Adam Spencer. Wil also does a bit of writing, and for the last five years has written a regular column for the Sunday Magazine (Herald-Sun/Sunday Telegraph) you can find some examples here. You can spot his column because it’s the one that isn’t about babies, recipes, recipes on how to cook a baby, or what stuff celebrities “can’t live without”. He has also written a book called Survival Of The Dumbest which he can happily boast is “over 250 pages without pictures.” But it is stand-up comedy that is Wil’s true passion. He has proudly told “dick jokes for cash” in pretty much every comedy club and festival in Australia, and taken his knob gags international to Edinburgh, Montreal, New York and in December made his London premiere with a two-week season at the Riverside Studios. Last year he took his 14th pun-titled solo show “Wilosophy” to the Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Comedy Festival, the Sydney Opera House, and then New Zealand, London, and Edinburgh. Wil lives in Sydney with his three cats Tip, Diego and Ziggy.
