Cal Wilson came across the Tasman in 2003 and has gone on to become one of our most popular comedians, a perennial favourite on television shows such as Spicks and Specks, Good News Week Thank God You’re Here, and more recently Have You Been Paying Attention? and Hughesy We Have a Problem. Her stand up shows are as engaging as they are hilarious, often bringing the audience’s stories to life alongside her own.
Cal earned herself a seat in one of Australia’s most sought-after writers’ rooms at the ABC for The Weekly with Charlie Pickering for its first two seasons. In 2016, she landed one of her dream jobs as an ensemble cast member in Whose Line Is It Anyway? Australia alongside some of the country’s brightest improvisers.
Since 2016 when it started in Australia, Cal has been the host of the worldwide smash-hit storytelling format The Moth’s monthly live shows in Melbourne.
In 2018, Cal toured her solo show Hindsight, which drew sold out crowds to comedy festivals around Australia, appeared on the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Oxfam Gala and was invited to the Montreal Just for Laughs comedy festival where she recorded a Netflix Original Comedy Special for release in 2019.
