PC NO GO AT SHOW BY KEVIN
Kevin Bloody Wilson is on a mission to set the “politically correct captives” free.
“I think political correctness is at the point now where it’s smothering free speech,” he says.
“For that reason people are coming to my shows because it’s basically a political correctnessfree zone.”
The comedian, who has received rave reviews from the likes of Billy Connolly, Paul Hogan and John Laws, will visit the Gold Coast next month with his First of the Final Farewell Tours. Perhaps concert.
But do not be fooled. He has been doing the show for a couple of years and he is out to set a record up against some well-known musos for the ‘‘Most Comebacks’’ title.
“I retired 30 years ago to pursue my hobbies such as comedy,’’ he says.
“The tour name is a take on people who say they’re retiring to pursue their hobbies.
“I see everyone doing their final concerts, so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon.
‘‘I’ll probably get three or four years out of this and then I’ll start doing my comebacks.
“Hey, when it comes to retiring and comebacks, I can out-Farnham (John) Farnham.
‘‘He has come back so many times, so if he can do it, so can I.’’
Those who may have a problem with vulgar language may want to steer clear.
“It lets people drop their guard. I refer to my shows as a stress relief seminar,” he says.
The comedian has been entertaining audiences in Australia and around the world since the 1970s and says writing comes naturally to him.
On Friday week, he is sure to set the stage on alight with his hilarious antics and truth-ridden comedic melodies.
Wilson recently shared his take on his life story in his biography entitled DILLIGAF: The Life And Rhymes Of Kevin Bloody Wilson.
