Willbond, along with Arnold Widdowson, appeared on "Best Newcomer" in 1999 and established Priorité à Gauche, a self-proclaimed "thinking man's French pop duo." He went on to perform his solo character shows at several Edinburgh Fringe festivals, the last being in 2005, which also featured Katy Brand and Jim Field Smith.

He is perhaps best known for his appearances in CBBC's Horrible Histories, in which he played a number of historical figures, including Henry VIII and Alexander the Great. Willbond, as well as five others of the Horrible Histories cast, is also the co-creator, author, and co-star of Yonderland, a family fantasy comedy series that premiered on SkyOne on November 10, 2013. In addition, he is co-writer of Bill, a BBC-produced comedy film based loosely on William Shakespeare's early life, which also featured the same starring cast members.

Willbond had appeared on a short-lived sketch show on ITV2 called Laura, Ben & Him, with Marek Larwood and later writing partner Laura Solon. Laura Solon's BBC Radio 4 sketch show "Talking and Not Talking" was also on display. Steve Warwick's recurring appearances in BBC Four's The Thick of It and as a television producer in the Ricky Gervais comedy Extras' final episode include other television appearances (BBC Two). He has also appeared in ITV2 and Mayo's Big Ass Show for BBC One in Katy Brands.

Willbond's other radio credits include BBC Radio 4's Deep Trouble, Double Science (co-written with Justin Edwards), Recorded for Education Purposes, and the first series of Electric Ink. He appeared in the YouTube romantic comedy "Nigel and Victoria."

Tooty's Wedding, which he co-wrote with Solon, has received numerous international comedy awards and was screened at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Starter, a film from ten (2006), was another notable film work. In 2007, he made a brief appearance in St. Trinian's as a gruesome school inspector.

He is currently appearing in BBC's Ghosts with the other main Horrible Histories cast member.
