Wil Anderson's Brisbane Comedy Festival performance, Wilarious, feels a bit like Wil is sitting with you at a bar sharing funny stories about his life – with extra emphasis and exaggeration in all the right places to induce lots of laughter. Wil quickly builds rapport with the audience and his down to earth, tell it like he sees it approach, is never offensive despite his opinionated take on a range of topics.
Wil's performance is fast paced. He's quick to get to the point and packs a lot into his hour long show. One of the best things about Wil's stand up is his candidness and openness with the audience. You'll learn about his most recent experience at the doctors, his diet or lack thereof, why he holds cows in such high esteem, and about the mentorship he's given to his 5 year old nephew who wanted to learn how to tell a joke. Wil throws in the odd adage or two along the way, and even though it's hard to believe, he weaves a very convincing argument as to why his death would be a good thing for the audience that evening after we leave the Powerhouse.
You'll leave Wilarious feeling like you've gained a new friend and have somehow grown closer to one of Australia's most easily recognisable comedians (and no, he's not that guy from the ABC's Spicks and Specks). But the best part about gaining this new friend is you'll have a really good laugh every step of the way. Wil asked the audience to tell all their friends to come along to his show, so here I am telling you to go and see Wilarious before the Brisbane Comedy festival ends.
