He’s taken his time but Wil Anderson is finally coming to Auckland. A household name in Australia with a trail of sold out shows from Melbourne to Edinburgh to Montreal, Wil is one of comedy’s biggest names.
Wil Anderson performs his show Wilosophy in Auckland in May for the NZ International Comedy Festival 2009, at the Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre, THE EDGE® from May 11-16.
Wil is a truly prolific stand up comic, generating a totally new, sharply written show every year since 1997. For five years he hosted Australia’s most listened to breakfast radio show, was the host of the AFI award-winning ABC-TV hit The Glass House for five years and is currently the host of The Gruen Transfer which launched in 2008, landing the biggest audience ever for an ABC-TV debut. He is also a popular newspaper columnist and has published a book of those columns. Not too bad for a bloke who says he got into comedy through “lack of other skills”.
Despite his success on television, Radio and in print, stand up comedy is Wil’s passion and he spends months on the road every year, jamming in tours between his media commitments.
Politics, pop and the banal come together delivered with more conviction and enthusiasm that any man’s vocal chords can take. Wil has earned a Perrier Best Newcomer nomination in Edinburgh and has appeared on the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs gala three times.
Wil Anderson in Wilosophy at the Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre, THE EDGE®, Auckland from May 11-16 at 8.30pm. Book at www.comedyfestival.co.nz or phone 0800 BUY TICKETS (289 842).
