It’s fair to say that Australian comedian Julia Wilson is not afraid of conflict – both verbal and physical. Prior to her 17 year career as a stand-up comedian, Julia was a truckie, a bouncer and bodyguard. More recently, she’s also got into NFL, American Football, and in a big way too! She’s quite possibly the toughest woman in comedy.
In this School of Hard Knock Knocks podcast episode, comedian Julia Wilson talks about her tough persona, being ‘punchy-as-fuck’ in her comedy routine, some rules of thumb as a female stand-up comedian, and not giving a shit about what other people think – which, according to Julia, is the reason for her success.
Julia is also a regular celebrity guest comedian at the School of Hard Knock Knocks monthly stand-up comedy courses run in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. Courses run from Sunday to Thursday, 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm, and include a comprehensive online course. Students graduate in front of a paying audience of between 50 – 100 and have the opportunity to perform at the Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
