Comedian & Broadcaster

Host and presenter of the ABC’s advertising show The Gruen Transfer, and host of award winning The Glass House, Wil Anderson’s comedic success and popularity are barely rivalled. He exhibits his talents in radio, stand-up comedy and television hosting, in addition to a published book and theatre appearances. Nothing is sacred in a Wil Anderson routine; the speed and imagination of his delivery sweeps audiences into fits of laughter. 

Wil Anderson hung up the headphones at the end of 2004 and hit the road in a big way in 2005. After five years on Triple J breakfast Wil decided to see what it felt like to not get up before the birds.

He didn't leave all of his media commitments behind. He continued to host the popular The Glass House with Dave Hughes and Corinne Grant on ABC-TV, until the end of 2006. He continues to write a weekly column for The Sunday Magazine, the most widely read magazine in the country, and is again on air co-hosting a afternoon drive program for the Triple M Radio Network.

But the focus for 2005 was stand-up, undertaking the year's biggest stand-up tour playing theatres in 29 towns and cities across a five month period. A similarly huge tour was the focus 2006. Wil's 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.

In 2008, Wil was asked to host a new program on the ABC called The Gruen Transfer. Now In it’s second season, the show is going very well.
