Welcome to AlaskaComedy.com’s new and improved website. My name is Jerry Evans, and over the past 20 years I’ve had the opportunity to work with and meet some of the best, most respected comedians of our time. Take a look in our “Green Room” and you’ll see what I mean. Thanks for checking us out and please take a look around, and lemme know what you think. I’ll be updating frequently.
Australia’s Finest Import Wil Anderson!Wil is a stand up first and foremost, touring Australia and the world at every opportunity, performing more than a hundred shows a year. His stand up is a densely written, high‐speed ride through one of the most wonderful comedic imaginations in the world. Politics, pop and the banal come together in a Wil Anderson routine, always delivered with more conviction and enthusiasm than any man’s vocal chords can take.2009 was big year for Wil. He spent a lot of time north of the equator, performing live in London, Edinburgh, Montreal and Los Angeles. He also released his second book, Friendly Fire (Random House), and his first stand up DVD, Wilosophy (Universal), which was recorded at the Sydney Opera House. By 2011 Wil has made five guest appearances on the popular US late night comedy talk show, Chelsea Lately. He was also back to host a fourth series of the high rating ABC TV series, The Gruen Transfer ‐ a role that saw him nominated for a Gold Logie, and spawned spin offs, The Gruen Nation and The Gruen Planet.In amongst hosting smash hit TV shows, in 2011 Wil was busy touring his hit live show Man Vs Wil selling out venues around International Comedy Festival, not to mention being named one of comedy’s hottest acts by none other than John Cleese, proving that this world class comedian is definitely at the top of his game.2013 saw Wil’s most successful tour yet, with GoodWil being seen by over 50,000 people including audience across North America in Vancouver, Montreal, LA, New York, Minneapolis, Seattle, DC, Cleveland and Denver. GoodWil was awarded a Fringe Award for Best Comedy during the Adelaide Fringe Festival, and enjoyed a sell-out 21-night run at the prestigious 1600-seat Princess Theatre during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival where it received a five-star review from the Herald-Sun.
