Thursday afternoon and I’m kickin’ it in West Hollywood with Australian comedian, podcaster & The Gruen Transfer TV presenter, Wil Anderson, after his 2016 run at Melbourne International Comedy Festival with his latest stand-up comedy show #FireAtWil.
 
Wil and I chat over a few beers about his latest podcast, 2 Guys 1 Cup,¬†a pub-style podcast salute to¬†AFL Australian Rules Football that he records with Aussie actor Charlie Clausen, the next steps for Gruen in 2016, his powerful, personal & engaging ‘Wilosophy’ podcast, Australian politics and the 2016 election,¬†advertising in podcasting, life in Los Angeles and travelling the world and Wil‚Äôs top 2 tips if you‚Äôre a person who‚Äôs harbouring a dream, but not sure how to take that first step.
 
As a¬†subscriber to Wil Anderson’s¬†TOFOP/FOFOP podcasts over the past 4-5 years, which are part of the inspiration for my own podcast and catching his LA stand-up set (supported by hilarious American stand-up comedian and podcaster Gareth Reynolds), I thoroughly enjoyed sitting down with¬†Wil again and I‚Äôm dead certain that you will just lap this shit up too!

Aussie comedian Wil Anderson stops by Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet

Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet – castle in the sky

‘Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet’ podcast series

Interview #10 ‚ÄstWil Anderson (comedian)

This is fuckin’ epic! The irony of me working in social media for a living and building a career in the digital world is that nowadays I’m not a believer of idolizing celebrities¬†– gushing ’cause you got a photo with this person or shook the hand of that person… I actually don’t give a shit who anyone is or what they’re famous for, for me it’s all about experiences and creating a connection¬†with people.

Having said that, I’m sitting here in my castle in the sky on a beautiful sunny Melbourne day having just completed a 1.5 hour podcast chat with¬†Australian stand-up comedian, TV presenter, podcaster and¬†international jet-setter,¬†Wil Anderson, and I can honestly say I’m a little bit fuckin’ stoked.¬†

I’ve been enjoying Wil Anderson’s comedy and worldly insights¬†since the early 2000s when he¬†was the host of the hilarious Australian TV show on the¬†ABC called The Glasshouse and presenter on Australia’s national youth radio station triple j.

Wil Anderson‘s live stand-up shows at Melbourne International Comedy Festival¬†are one of the first that shows that I lock in to see every year ’cause like myself he has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge that he weaves in¬†with current events and these worldly insights¬†to make him¬†a wonderful story-teller and an interesting person to hang out with.

Now Wil and I have been chatting via Twitter/email for about 4-5 years and I originally hit him up a few years back¬†about getting involved in a series of federally and state government backed international music showcases called The Aussie BBQ,¬†which are¬†designed to export Australian music to the USA, UK and other global markets and I love it that someone who’s career I’ve enjoyed watching evolve¬†has¬†also made an impact on my own now too. Wil Anderson and Charlie Clausen’s podcast ‘TOFOP’¬†was one of the¬†first podcasts that I ever listened to¬†and that podcast, along with Greg Behrendt¬†&¬†Dave Anthony‘s ‘Walking The Room’¬†(RIP ūüė¶ ),¬†Dave Anthony and Gary Reynolds The Dollop’¬†(ha ha… sorry Gareth, I had to buddy! :D),¬†Jay Mohr’s ‘Mohr Stories’¬†and Kevin Smith‘s Smodcast world were¬†the fuel for my imagination that helped¬†bring the¬†‘Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet’ podcast to life. This podcast series is also now a key element of¬†my ultimate goal of being able to work from anywhere around the world with a¬†laptop and WiFi connection – hence the name¬†Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet – tying in my photography, music &¬†entertainment¬†industry contacts, the podcast, blog and¬†experience guiding global brands in how and where to play in social media,

What both¬†first time listeners and regular subscribers won’t know is that the¬†Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet¬†project¬†was originally inspired by¬†Yahoo‚Äôs¬†first ever journalist,¬†Kevin Sites, a American TV war correspondent who left the likes of¬†ABC/CNN/NBC¬†to travel around the globe covering 20 different war zones over the space of 365 days with a mixture of video, still photography and writing in a project called¬†‚ÄúIn The Hot Zone‚ÄĚ. Great read. You should check it out.

Anyway, this was a super chilled chat and we barely even touched the list of questions that I usually use as the framework for the ‘Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet’ podcast. Like all good conversations it flows and it’s all about the tangents. ‘Cause that’s where the gold comes in…

Enjoy!

Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Top 5 must-see acts!

Posted on Updated on

Greg Behrendt live at Melbourne International Comedy Festival with Dave Thornton and Dave Anthony.

Just as the weather in Melbourne begins to turn Crowded House.. BANG! One my favourite events of the calendar year brings the city of Melbourne alive! Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

If you’ve never been then head into town one night with friends after work for a cheeky pint and a couple of shows. It’s this time of year that I feel transported away and¬†Melbourne¬†feels truly European.

Here are my Top 5 must-see acts in 2014:

1. Wil Anderson in Wiluminati.

I’ve been following Wil Anderson since Glasshouse and triple j days, and always enjoyed his intelligent, worldly insights on politics and currents events mixed in with the occasional dollop of smutty humour ūüėČ

2. Jason Byrne in You Name The Show!

Lot’s of good-spirited audience participation & guaranteed to make you wet yourself. Seriously two¬†of the funniest shows I’ve seen at MICF the past 2 years!

3. Greg Behrendt

Greg’s been around the comedy circuit for years and one hell of a nice guy, but what hooked me in is Greg Behrendt’s podcast with Dave Anthony, Walking The Room. That and bright pink mohawks..¬†A little bit, nay, a lot fuckin’ wrong and bloody hilarious!

5. Sam Simmons in Death of a Sails-Man.

Loved Sam’s punchy, quirky humour since back in the day when he featured regularly on Scott Dooley’s triple j¬†show with¬†Shitty Trivia and was fortunate enough to meet him backstage at Brisbane Festival’s Spiegeltent¬†a few years back. Guarantee you’ve never seen anything like it and a little bit awesome!
