Veronica: Australian comic Wil Anderson gives us his Wilosophy about everything from environmental issues, gay right and politics. Wil: A lot mind if you’re a Christian, go on if you’re a Christian or you’re a Muslim, but can we stop killing each other, if I’m your imaginary friend is better than their imaginary friend. Veronica: Hi I’m Veronica of watchmojo.com and today we’re speaking with a comic that will make you laugh. You have a very impressive resume, you’re a published author, columnist, a TV host in a successful comedian. What is it that made you want it and turn to the entertainment industry? Wil: You know the great thing about being a comedian is you woke up to work and there’s a whole bunch of people there who are really excited that you arrived, they clapped when you walked out. What other job do you get a round of applause before you’ve even done any thing? All I’ve done is walk from there where I’m standing to here, to start and you’re already clapping. How good is that? And I can drink while I’m working? David here got charged of thing called material assistance for terrorism, what the hell does that even mean? Material assistance? Its makes sound like you designed the uniforms, we arrived for the Al khaeda guy. Veronica: Well we’re really glad that you followed your dreams because in Wilosophy you answer most of the world’s problems, do you consider yourself as a super hero? Wil: I have two super powers, one is the ability to always choose a perfectly ripe avocado. If I was in the X-men that like would not be as cool as Wolverine like you know doing that sort of stuff. But if they needed like Wolverine had gone out and killed some people and solved the big thing and I wanted to celebrate with chips and dibbs. Veronica: You’re the man. Wil: I’ll be the guy, right, that will be awesome. Stated in the bible that you can’t be gay. Well it says a lot of shit in the bible we now agree in these days, doesn’t it? Where’s my slave? And the other thing he’s a very good procrastinating. Hey procrastinating man we need you to come and solve this crime maybe that will be excellent. First I’ve just got a cup of tea then I’m going to rearrange my CD’s in to the order that I bought them and then I will have another cup of tea and then I’m going to re arranged my CD’s into sounded like older albums that about bands that have fruit in the name in each other and there was a crime I have to solve. Says in Leviticus I can never slave from enabling island, does New Zealand count? Veronica: What’s your tool to lure the opposite sex? Wil: Rohypnol, do they have that here? No, that’s a joke. The only person who gets a hard time with Paris Hilton, Paris Hilton is such a slut. What does she really do, she worth 60 million bucks and she doesn’t have a job and she goes around the world and she root some pebble? God on earth, if I had 60 million bucks and I dint have a job I would do that too. Men I do for handful of changing in all that bus pass. Veronica: What do you say that funny guys really do get all the girls? Wil: People you know is like, I’m looking for a guy with sense of humor, but what they mean is I’m looking for a really good looking guy who he’d be nice if he has a sense of humor. and I say maybe will be likely more when I have photos of Danny Devito on the wall, John Kennedy you know girls aren’t getting for Randy for candy. I always think of a girl comes to see my show and is there a chance to me that never sustain it self because that is entertaining as I am. Veronica: Like a down hill? Wil: It is certainly that’s like the most entertaining 70 minutes of stuff I’ve absorb in a year. For the rest of my life is boring but embarrassing. Veronica: I hope we will be watching and good luck with everything. Wil: Well thank you for having me.
