The Funny Side Of Computers
After ten long years in I.T. working for some of the most respected companies in the world (from IBM to Nat West, Coutts & Co. and Unisys), Willis has extensive experience in every facet of the IT industry, from testing, PC support through to software engineering, programming and teenage video gaming obsession.
Therefore, the logical thing to do seemed to be to give it all up and chase a career as a Stand-Up comedian, possibly one of the most obvious career paths in modern times, from Bits and Bytes to Quip’s and Snipes (hardly a gangster rapper, but at least it Rhymes).
3000 Gigs, 40 Festivals Later, Willis decided to attempt the impossible and write an entire comedy show about computers, and thus, the show “Control-Alt-Delete” was born, debut’d at Melbourne International comedy festival to rave reviews, followed up with a sell-out run at Edinburgh and Adelaide Fringe’s.
The show is available in two guises, the original “Control-Alt-Delete” and an alternate version “PC, MAC and me”, both can be performed for audience members of all ages, with or without adult content on request.
