Comedian Resume

Wil began his career as a stand up comedian in Los Angeles at the two most famous proving grounds in America, the Improvisation and the Comedy Store.  There he met David Letterman, who took him on to write and perform on his morning talk show. After dozens of appearances with Dave, Jay Leno and legend Johnny Carson, Wil was tapped to host his own national talk show, the Wil Shriner show in 1987. 200 shows later and after three emmy nominations the show ended but Wil continues to do his stand up comedy and to work as a celebrity host and MC at events around the world.

Wil has made over 50 appearances with David Letterman, Jay Leno, Bill Maher and Johnny Carson.

He has appeared at dozens of casinos in Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, Atlantic City and Reno with: Joan Rivers, Jerry Seinfeld, John Denver, Loretta Lynn, Tom Jones, The Gatlins, Neil Sedaka, Tony Bennett and Jay Leno.
