He's often wrong, but always funny' - Patrick Cook 'Did you know that in the last ten years, 31 Australians have died from watering the Christmas tree while the lights were still plugged in? And at least a couple of those were watering plastic trees. Now I don't want to seem callous, but to me that's not a tragedy - that's natural selection.' In SURVIVAL OF THE DUMBEST, Wil Anderson turns his sharp gaze and wicked wit to the stupid, strange and perplexing quandaries of popular culture. Wil spares no-one, not even himself, as he delivers an almighty forehead slap to the modern world. And let's face it- between TV, politics, oversexed sports stars, advertising and automatic phone-banking systems - there are a lot of foreheads that need one. Wil Anderson caused cornflake snorting incidents as a breakfast announcer on Triple J, former host of ABC TV's The Glass House and continues to thrill audiences at just about every comedy festival known to man. Currently, Wil writes for the Sunday Telegraph and Herald-Sun's Sunday Magazine and hosts the popular Wil + Lehmo show on Triple M.

Author Biography - Wil Anderson

Comedian, writer and broadcaster, Wil Anderson was the former co-host of Triple J's Breakfast show, one of Australia's few truly national brekkie radio gigs and former host of ABC-TVs cult hit 'The Glass House'. However, he is probably still best known as one of Australia's greatest live stand-up comedians, selling out theatres across the country. His ease on stage is a disarming front for intelligent material that ranges from personal to pop to politics. He has also performed at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and the Adelaide Fringe Festival, and in 1999 was nominated for the Perrier Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, returning since to much critical acclaim. Wil writes the Sunday Roast column for the Sunday Magazine (Sunday Telegraph). He has also been a columnist for The Australian, Melbourne Extra (1998-99) and The Big Issue (1997), and is one of Australia's most accomplished corporate performers. He currently hosts the successful Wil + Lehmo show on Triple M.
