Wil Hodgson

WINNER-PERRIER AWARD-BEST NEWCOMER-2004

Chippenham's finest and a unique voice on the stand-up circuit

Wil Hodgson is fast establishing himself on the stand-up circuit as an original and unique voice. A former professional wrestler, Wil turned to stand-up a couple of years ago and hasn't looked back. Spinning hilarious and memorable yarns of bizarre West Country rednecks, care bears and big women, Wil is already a firm favourite with comedy promoters and audiences and is set to become a big name in the world of stand-up.
