Ward Anderson

Description

High-energy comedian Ward Anderson seemed to explode onto the scene out of the blue and, instantly, was everywhere.   In reality, Anderson has always been out there, working in comedy clubs, private shows, and colleges all over North America.  At his busiest, Anderson has toured as many as forty-nine weeks per year, to places as west as Alaska and as far east as Singapore.  He has performed for tens of thousands of people in a career that has spanned almost two decades. In 2011, Anderson won two international awards for his work directing music videos.  He is the recipient of the prestigious Remi Award in directing from The Houston International Film Festival and also the esteemed Accolade Award out of California.   That same year, he wrote, directed, and starred in his own TV comedy special, Americanadian. Anderson is currently one-half of the popular satellite radio talk show, “Ward and Al”.  Co-hosted by comedian Allison Dore, “Ward and Al” can be heard weekdays on SiriusXM satellite radio.  A blend of news, comedy, and entertainment talk, “Ward and Al” boasts a loyal following who helped make the duo popular on The Internet long before their move to satellite radio. Never one to slow down,  Anderson recently signed a deal with US publisher Kensington Books to release two novels.  His first novel, I’ll Be Here All Week, is slated for release in July, 2014 in North America and The UK. One of the busiest comedians working today, he has also been featured in Georgia Magazine, The Detroit News,  The Toronto Star, and Billboard Magazine. Always entertaining, Ward Anderson is a comedian you do not want to miss. “Don’t Miss this Hot, Up-and-Coming Comic” – 365 Ink “Anderson poignantly describes with a humourous, self-effacing aplomb the unglamorous grunt work of the typical full-time standup“ - The Toronto Star A high-energy tour-de-force of offbeat comedy that hits you from the first minute and doesn’t let up…” –Quad City Times “A hilarious night of comedy” –University of Kentucky
