Wil Anderson is joining Melbourne’s Triple M Hot Breakfast alongside Eddie McGuire and Luke Darcy.
Wil has won the People’s Choice Award for a record six times at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, selling more tickets than any other act and cementing himself as Melbourne’s comedian of choice. Wil has spent the last 8 years between LA and Australia, touring the world to sold out rooms and as host and executive producer of ABC TV’s most popular show Gruen.
“I am a huge fan of the show. It’s been my lifeline to Melbourne as I have toured the world doing stand-up,” said Wil. “I’m guessing I’ve probably heard more of it than Mick has. It’s a show that gives you the news, and makes the news, all with a laugh. So many times I have thought I would love to be part of that conversation, and now I’m rapt that I get to, waking up with my favourite city in the world. And I’m even more excited because of the genius of Mick Molloy, I don’t have to get in until 7am!”
“Wil is one of the funniest and most respected comedians in the country,” said Mike Fitzpatrick, Triple M’s Head of Content. “He is loved in Melbourne, selling out his comedy festival shows every year. That combined with his passion for music and footy makes him the perfect fit to sit alongside Eddie and Darc”.
The Hot Breakfast will take its post footy finals break and Wil will start on Monday 23 October.
