Wil Anderson Explains Why He Never Watches Gruen

Wil Anderson joins Born Funny! Diving deep with Jimmy & Nath into his 30-year journey in comedy. Wil shares insights about his unexpected success with Gruen, reflecting on his transformation from a dairy farm kid to a household name in comedy.

Wil confesses that he is his own harshest critic. Admitting he finds it so hard to watch himself that he will always avoid it where he can.

Listen Here:

Wil has served as the host of ABC’s Gruen TV series, since the show that first hit Australian screens in 2008. Even though the show is now in its sixteenth season, having aired more than 160 episodes. Wil revealed that he has only seen a single episode each season. Just to make sure he hasn’t picked up any strange habits. But aside from the annual viewing, he has no interest.

In the rest of the episode, Wil discusses the accidental ways he learned stand-up, drawing inspiration from legends like John Cleese, and how he developed his unique comedic style. He opens up about his family, the silent support from his parents, and the pivotal role ABC comedy played in his youth.
