A shining star of the 2009 Cadbury Crunchie ® Comedy Gala, and now with his very own BBC radio series (The Wilson Dixon Line, BBC Radio 2), our favourite country singer from Cripple Creek, Colorado, is back at the NZ International Comedy Festival with a brand new show about an epic road trip he took across America.

For the last two years, Wilson has been living next to his ex-wife, Maureen - she ran off with another man, a man who happened to be the next door neighbour. Consequently, his life has been quite strange; like the time Maureen threw a BBQ or when she popped over to borrow a cup of sugar - to make her new man a birthday cake.

So Wilson says goodbye to his horse, packs his guitar and his dog, and hits the road (he doesn't really pack his dog, he just comes along for the ride. Packing dogs is actually illegal. Let’s put an end to this madness).

Putting miles between himself and his life in Cripple Creek, he throws caution to the wind, blows away the cobwebs, and subsequently has to deal with some angry spiders in the air vent of his pick up truck.

And what a world Wilson encounters; a lonely lady running a butcher shop and hairdressing salon in one, a philosophical hick pumping gas, and a man in a wheelchair that gets pulled around by a crocodile in a harness.

After thousands of miles and hundreds of towns, Wilson eventually finds himself in Nashville, Tennessee the home of country music, and is faced with one of the biggest choices of his life.

Since his 2009 total sell-out NZ Comedy Festival season of Wilson Dixon Saddle Sore, the cowboy philosopher has toured NZ with the Crunchie Comedy Convoy and The Comedy Christmas Gala and premiered Wilson Dixon's American Dream to rave reviews and sell-out audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe, he also appeared on Loose Ends on BBC 4 alongside Griff Rhys Jones, Malcolm McLaren, Clive Anderson and Diana Quick. His own BBC Radio series The Wilson Dixon Line was played in May 2009 throughout the UK and has recently enjoyed a second transmission.
