Publisher's Summary

Good sense, good jokes, and good WIL—a book about enduring turbulent times with humour, community and just a dash of Apple Cider Vinegar.

'How are you?'

How am I? How am I? How do you think I am? I know in the Before Times the tradition was to reply, 'I'm fine, thanks.' Then you would ask how they were, and they would reply, 'I'm fine, thanks.' And then we would all get on with our lives. But I can't play my part in that pantomime anymore. I cannot say, 'I am fine, thanks,' because (spoilers) I am not fine, thanks.

What do you get when a housebound comedian is left with no option but to make comedy using only a rampant washing machine, a lot of Vaseline (it's for the pipes—no, not that pipe), a roast chook and an unused exercise bike to keep him company? You get I Am NOT Fine, Thanks.

From prime ministers who don't hold a hose, to billionaires who think they're astronauts, to people who think lizards are ruling the country and that thermometers are wiping your memory, it's abundantly clear that the world is going to hell.

In I Am NOT Fine, Thanks Wil Anderson uses his iconic dry humour to soothe the sting of the last few years—laughter is the best medicine, after all (or is it Apple Cider Vinegar?). Part memoir, part manifesto and all comedy, this is a book that will both make your every frustration feel heard and show you that there is plenty to hope for.

‘This book is a welcome icepack after being repeatedly hit on the head by the world.' SHAUN MICALLEF

Just when you thought Wil Anderson was too ubiquitous he pulls this excellent book from I don’t know where!!

This is actually a great book reflecting on Covid, bushfires, floods and some great jokes. Just when you thought he was passé he goes out and kicks goals!

Love Wil’s perspective.

Made me laugh out loud. I enjoy his perspective. He is able to discuss serious often decisive topics and make them funny. I liked his reasoning behind using the word trust instead of belief. I really enjoyed this book.

Brilliant. Funny. Heartbreaking.

If you’re a Wil Anderson fan, you should listen to this book. If you’re not a Wil Anderson fan, you should listen to this book. It will make you laugh, it will make you question a lot of things in life, it will make you angry, and it will make you appreciate the power of good comedy.

Way too political

Really torn on how to review this one. Some of the stories in this are hilarious and really captivating , others are just political shite. Enjoyed his take on covid and how he coped. For someone who has been in the comedy industry for over 20 years and well regarded, this book did not make me want to see him live. If you are already a fan, i am sure you would enjoy it, otherwise check-out something else, he pushes his political views way too much.

A must read if you enjoy any of Wil’s stuff

A must read / listen to if you enjoy any content Wil produces. Such a great book about life in the last few years for him and all of us to an extent!

I am left feeling NOT looking for more

Was really disappointed by the way too political narrative. A few funny moments but definitely not anyway as entertaining and as funny as I was hoping for. Everyone has an opinion this is just mine. A really entertaining story is Ahn Do if you haven’t listened to that yet di your self a truly funny and special story!

Absolutely Brilliant

Up there with the funniest, yet thought provoking books I have ever read or listened to. A real mirror to all of the hardships we've experienced over the past few years. Wil's delivery is absolutely spot on.

Wonderfully Wilmsicle ☺️

Wil if you read this I think you did a bang up job with writing and reading this book. I’m still going but there’s been heaps of laugh out loud moments already. Spoiler alert ⭐️⭐️⭐️ I can’t get the image of “Will Anderson’s” upper body poking out the top of a limousine sunroof in Sydney traffic 😱 out of my head and it makes me smile every time. Well done Wil I’m really glad you finished this book and it turned out so Wil 🥳
PS I loved your contribution to the stand up show on Stan, it was so cool to hear about behind the scenes. Chef’s kiss x
