Kevin Bridges

Scotland’s favourite stand-up comic, Kevin Bridges, has made his way down under to perform many shows for his Australian fans. The hilarious comedian is performing at the Comedy Festival in Melbourne along with more shows in Brisbane, Perth as well as the Sydney Comedy Festival.

Bridges first rose to fame in 2006 at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival and has been getting bigger and better ever since. He was inspired to pursue stand-up comedy after reading Frank Skinner’s autobiography.

“I was reading his autobiography and that made the world of stand-up sound tough and quite challenging and ideal for someone who thought they were quite funny,” says Bridges, “So, I thought I’d give it a go.”

Scotland’s biggest export recorded his debut DVD and is a regular on the hit comedy show Stand Up For the Week.

Audiences should expect the unexpected at one of his shows.

“I talk about opinions, observations and just stupid stories really,” says the comedian. “And a woman went into labour one night during my show in Glasgow.”

This marks the first time Kevin Bridges will be touring Australia so it should be a good one. (CT)
