There’s an indescribable delightfulness in seeing seasoned comedians continue to surpass themselves and evolve as a performer — 43 year old comedy legend Wil Anderson is one of those rare gems. In the last four years I’ve attended his shows, Wil has unremittingly and consistently grown, continuously refining and polishing his crafts as the captivatingly engaging, soothingly crisp, sharply witty and intellectually thought-provoking comic that he is in the world of standup.
