Cal Wilson

Cal Wilson

Cal Wilson came across the Tasman in 2003 and has gone on to become one of our most popular comedians, a perennial favourite on television shows such as Spicks and Specks, Good News Week, Thank God You’re Here, and more recently Have You Been Paying Attention? and Hughesy We Have a Problem. Her stand up shows are as engaging as they are hilarious, often bringing the audience’s stories to life alongside her own. Cal earned herself a seat in one of Australia’s most sought-after writers’ rooms at the ABC for The Weekly with Charlie Pickering for its first two seasons. In 2016, she landed one of her dream jobs as an ensemble cast member in Whose Line Is It Anyway? Australia alongside some of the country’s brightest improvisers. In 2018, Cal was invited by Netflix to the Montreal Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal to record a Netflix Original Comedy Special which was released in early 2019. In 2019, Cal is returning as the host of the worldwide smash-hit storytelling format The Moth’s live shows in Melbourne for the 5th year and is touring a brand-new stand-up show, Gifted Underachiever.
