Kevin Bridges is Scotland’s favourite stand up comic! He tours Australia for the first time in March with shows in Melbourne Brisbane and Sydney.
Despite having not set foot in a comedy club before his first open mic spot in 2004, Kevin’s natural gift for comedy ensured he quickly became a regular at major comedy clubs up and down the country.
In 2006 Kevin performed his first full-length solo show at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, to a sold out audience and much critical acclaim. Moving into bigger venues every year, Kevin continued to sell out his hometown festival in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
“Hilarious observations. One of the hottest properties on the stand up scene”
Edinburgh Evening News
As well as having a strong hometown following, Kevin has taken his style of observational, cutting edge comedy all over the globe. He has performed throughout Ireland, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, USA and Canada along with tours of the Far East and Middle East.
Kevin appeared on “The World Stands Up” and “The Comedy Store” (Comedy Central) which led to his first big TV break as a guest on the first series of “Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow”, which aired to over 5 million viewers. It led to Kevin being the fastest act to sell out all 28 nights of his 2009 Edinburgh Festival run and adding a staggering 15 extra shows, which also sold out! A favourite with the punters but also the critics, Kevin received 5 star reviews and a nomination for the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Awards “Best Newcomer”.
‘He’s the sort of everyman stand-up who makes everyone think they can be a comedian.’ … So natural, so unaffected, is his style that it hardly seems written at all.’ … ‘His bullshit detector is in full working order, and once identified, he can destroy his target with sharp wit’
Kevin’s astonishing rise to success continued in 2010 – he recorded his debut DVD at a sold out Glasgow SECC arena in front of 10,000 fans, became a regular on hit new comedy show “Stand Up For The Week” and headlined the first episode in the second series of “Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow. In his hometown Glasgow, Kevin sold out 10 shows at the SECC Arena playing to a total audience of 100,000.
Kevin continues to perform in packed houses around the world – and finally Australia will get the opportunity to see what everyone is laughing at! Be the first!!!
“Sickeningly talented young show stealer.”
