Stand Up Reel

Wil began his journey as a stand up comedian in Los Angeles in the early eighties at the two most famous proving grounds in America, the Improvisation and the Comedy Store.  There he met David Letterman, who liked him and hired him to write and perform on his morning talk show. After dozens of appearances with Dave, Jay Leno and the legend Johnny Carson, Wil was tapped to host his own national talk show, the Wil Shriner show. Wil shot 200 episodes of his show and was recognized with three Emmy nominations.

Wil has made over 50 TV appearances for David Letterman, Jay Leno, Bill Maher and Johnny Carson. He continues to do his stand up comedy and to work as a celebrity host and MC at events at theaters, nightclubs and corporate events around the country.   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.  Wil’s humor has also helped to raise over 4 million dollars for a wide variety of charities.
