KEV’S A BLOODY LEG­END

OUR MOST PO­LIT­I­CALLY IN­COR­RECT CO­ME­DIAN PROM­ISES AN AL­MOST AWE­SOME NIGHT OUT

Life & Style Weekend - - BUSINESS - PHOTO: CON­TRIBUTED Kevin Bloody Wil­son’s the Al­most Awe­some Tour is an 18+ event. To see the man in ac­tion on the Sun­shine Coast next Satur­day, head to www.theshed.live for tick­et­ing in­for­ma­tion.

Den­nis Bryant is a lot of things; co­me­dian, satirist, par­o­dist, singer-song­writer and all-round en­ter­tainer.

What he isn’t is po­lit­i­cally cor­rect, which his fans don’t mind in the slight­est.

You prob­a­bly know him by his stage name, Kevin Bloody Wil­son and if you don’t, now is as good a time as any to ex­pe­ri­ence his comic ge­nius with Wil­son about to tour Queens­land.

The Al­most Awe­some Tour is not just a con­cert per­for­mance, for most, it’s a full-on event and a chance to see one of Australia’s most unique in­ter­na­tional com­edy le­gends in his ele­ment.

Kevin has be­come a na­tional in­sti­tu­tion – a must-see for any per­son who en­joys ro­bust and orig­i­nal Aus­tralian com­edy.

Kevin Bloody Wil­son’s story is unique. He has be­come a part of Aus­tralian cul­ture, a throw­back to yes­ter­year. His re­cently re­leased bi­og­ra­phy DILLIGAF, The Life And Rhymes Of Kevin Bloody Wil­son is a rau­cous, earthy, in-depth look at the man who has no qualms speak­ing his mind.

He’s been listed in Who’s Who, his en­tire body of work has been pre­served for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions with the Na­tional Film and Sound Ar­chive in Canberra and his fan base stretches from Bro­ken Hill to Buckingham Palace.

His record sales are now nudg­ing the four mil­lion mark.

Kevin Bloody Wil­son’s al­bums and DVDS have achieved gold sales sta­tus glob­ally, with many reach­ing plat­inum, and one, Kev’s Back, awarded an amaz­ing quadru­ple plat­inum.

The true blue Aussie lar­rikin has the rare abil­ity to shift seam­lessly be­tween an out­back pub to the hal­lowed halls of the Lon­don Pal­la­dium with ease.

It seems ironic that 25 years ago, Kevin Bloody Wil­son was be­ing ar­rested for per­form­ing his songs in public, yet on Australia Day in Jan­uary 2010, he was of­fi­cially nom­i­nated for Aus­tralian Of The Year for do­ing the same thing.

Now, Kev tours Australia and abroad, per­form­ing roughly 120 shows a year to ador­ing fans.

“Hello John is the fun­ni­est song I’ve ever heard in my en­tire ra­dio ca­reer,” ra­dio per­son­al­ity John Laws said.

“I love Kev. My favourite is Livin’ Next Door to Alan,” actor Paul Ho­gan said. “The world’s fun­ni­est Aus­tralian,” co­me­dian Billy Con­nolly said.
