About Powerfish

Willem Powerfish is a well-known comedian, mental health advocate, and philanthropist. His fans love his pranks, colourful humour, and the many giveaways that are a feature of the Powerfish brand. They also connect with the open discussion about issues around mental health that work towards taking the stigma away from getting help. And of course, it all comes back to the outdoors – fishing, surfing, and the great Aussie outdoors form the backdrop for the iconic Powerfish videos.

The Fish Behind Powerfish

Growing up in Victoria Point, Willem left at the early age of 18 for the Gold Coast where he was able to surf - and has never looked back. After falling on some hard times and struggling with mental health, alcoholism, and gambling, he got outdoors and focused on healthy pursuits, which helped set him on the road to better mental health.

After harpooning a 3 metre long flathead, Willem became a world record holder. He began creating videos built around flatty fishing and pulling pranks on local fishermen as a way to make people laugh and brighten their day. The support quickly grew, and soon he was featuring giveaways, charity work, and honest discussion about mental health along with the unique brand of comedy.

The Powerfish brand is powerfully influenced by Willem’s love of fishing, having a laugh, and supporting the community. His success and popularity have allowed him the opportunity to influence people from around the world, showcasing his unique Australian style while addressing serious issues with a relatable approach.
