Politically incorrect funnyman Kevin Bloody Wilson announces his hilarious new Australian tour

F.U.P.C Tour 2019 – Politically correct free zone

More tour dates announced for May 2019 | With special guest Jenny Talia From Australia

There are few comedians on the touring circuit today who tackle subjects with such aplomb as funnyman Kevin Bloody Wilson. He is politically incorrect, direct, he doesn’t mince his words and he doesn’t rely on subtlety to get his point across – he is a breath of fresh air compared to his contemporaries who often walk about on eggshells. His directness totally embodies the spirit of Australian humour. In recent times, he has become a social commentator of sorts about political correctness in the current day, so it is apt then that his 2019 Australian tour is a nod to that, the tongue-in-cheek titled F.U.P.C Tour.

Kev is revered around the globe for his Aussie larrikin take on life. He’s performed everywhere throughout his career, from outback pubs to the hallowed halls of the London Palladium, packing out houses wherever he goes. An evening in the company of Kevin Bloody Wilson is jam-packed with entertainment. It is not just a concert performance, it is a full-on event and an opportunity for most to tick off something from their bucket-list – see a ‘national institution’ in concert, done!

Kev has an extensive back catalogue, and audiences can expect to experience them and more at his F.U.P.C Tour, such as fan favourites, like D.I.L.L.I.G.A.F, Dick’taphone, I Knew the Bride (When She Used to be a Mole) and Living Next Door to Alan. His songs have helped define Aussie humour – he is practically the definition of the great Australian comedian. His recently released biography – DILLIGAF: The Life and Rhymes of Kevin Bloody Wilson – is a raucous, earthy in-depth look at a performer who has not bowed to the pressures of political correctness.

Kevin Bloody Wilson’s story is now one of legend. Always a larrikin, he originally recorded songs on a cassette tape for his mates, penned about his experiences working in the mines in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. In the early 1980s, he put together a tape called Your Average Australian Yobbo and started selling it – sales went into the tens of thousands before it was transferred to LP, where it sold even more. It was just the start of his career and he has never looked back.

Fast forward more than three decades and Kev is a household name throughout Australia and the world. It is hard to believe that it was only 30 or so years ago that he was getting arrested for performing his politically incorrect songs in public. Times have changed though, and Kev even now spots a nomination for Australian of the Year (nominated in 2010). As one of the country’s most prolific performers, and a genuinely nice, down-to-earth bloke to boot, it’s not surprising he has earned the reputation as one of our country’s greatest living treasures.

With many of his songs pushing the boundaries, Kevin Bloody Wilson has earned his place in the entertainment industry without a lot of mainstream media support. His record sales are now nudging the four million mark. All of his CDs and DVDs have achieved gold status globally, with many reaching platinum status. In fact, one album, Kev’s Back, hit quadruple platinum. His recordings can be found all over the world, from outback Australia to Canada. His music has also been preserved for generations to come in the National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra. His fan base stretches from Broken Hill to Buckingham Palace and he has sold-out shows around the world, constantly earning new fans, who are envious of his DILLIGAF attitude.

Well done Kev, you’ve done us proud! Don’t miss the legend in a venue near you! Tickets for Kevin Bloody Wilson’s F.U.P.C Tour are on sale now.

ABC TV star Sammy J takes his Major Party on the road

Sammy J has announced an additional Melbourne date on his Major Party tour for June and July 2019. By popular demand, the ABC satirical comedian has included another date at the iconic Athenaeum on June 28, only a week after he announced the two-month tour. Australia, are you ready to party? Because Sammy J is bringing all his characters, favourite songs and new sketches to the stage next year in one massive variety show.

The comedian, author and self-proclaimed nerd has been entertaining crowds around the globe for years, but TV audiences will know him best from his award-nominated weekly satirical spot on the ABC. His hit sketches have included The Government CoachNational Yoga, and the breakout satire of the 2016 federal election, Playground Politics.

But ultimately, Sammy is most at home on stage. He’s a veteran of 15-years touring from Edinburgh to Montreal, both solo and in his award-winning comedy duo ‘Sammy J & Randy’. Together they won the biggest live comedy award in Australia, The Barry, at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and later turned that show into the award-winning sitcom, Sammy J & Randy in Rickets Lane, which played internationally on Netflix.

This time round, he’s left Randy at home, and is excited to bring his comedy to a brand-new  audience from his burgeoning TV following. For Sammy J, he modestly hopes audiences come to the show ready for the best night of their lives. “It will be the sort of night that is going to make every other night until their death a disappointment in comparison,” he promises. “There’ll be stand-up, songs, sketches and characters from my weekly ABC TV spots. You won’t need to know anything about politics to enjoy it. But if you happen to know the whole constitution by heart, there’ll be plenty for you as well.”

This is Sammy’s first solo tour since 2017’s award-winning Hero Complex, an autobiographical story about a gardener, a schoolboy and a mutual love of the comic book character, The Phantom. That show broke the shackles of the ‘musical comedian’ moniker and Major Party will further show his comedy chops. “I feel like I’ve been chasing different audiences my entire career, and this show is the chance to bring them all together,” he says. “So, whether you’re five-years-old, 15, or 65,this is one party I hope you don’t miss. Actually, maybe not the five-year-olds, get a babysitter for those ones …”

While the youngsters in the audiences may need to stay at home, it was actually Sammy J’s own children that helped bring to life his Playground Politics show in the first place. “ABC asked me to do daily updates during the last election, and wanted to know if I had any ideas,” he says. “I said ‘sure’…. I was lying. So, I asked for 24-hours. During that 24-hours, like most days, I watched Play School with my kids. Then I had the idea of blatantly plagiarizing it, and the rest is short satirical format history.”

When he is not delving deep into the minefield of political drama, Sammy J has been scoring himself ARIA Awards – he has three – and in 2018 released his debut novel, The Long Class Goodnight. As part of his weekly ABC TV shows, he snuck into Malcolm Turnbull’s final press conference, just to eat a chocolate bar, and it’s this attitude to fun,irreverence and smart silliness he will bring to Sammy J’s Major Party.

ABC TV star Sammy J takes his Major Party on the road

Sammy J has announced an additional Melbourne date on his Major Party tour for June and July 2019. By popular demand, the ABC satirical comedian has included another date at the iconic Athenaeum on June 28, only a week after he announced the two-month tour. Australia, are you ready to party? Because Sammy J is bringing all his characters, favourite songs and new sketches to the stage next year in one massive variety show.

The comedian, author and self-proclaimed nerd has been entertaining crowds around the globe for years, but TV audiences will know him best from his award-nominated weekly satirical spot on the ABC. His hit sketches have included The Government CoachNational Yoga, and the breakout satire of the 2016 federal election, Playground Politics.

But ultimately, Sammy is most at home on stage. He’s a veteran of 15-years touring from Edinburgh to Montreal, both solo and in his award-winning comedy duo ‘Sammy J & Randy’. Together they won the biggest live comedy award in Australia, The Barry, at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and later turned that show into the award-winning sitcom, Sammy J & Randy in Rickets Lane, which played internationally on Netflix.

This time round, he’s left Randy at home, and is excited to bring his comedy to a brand-new  audience from his burgeoning TV following. For Sammy J, he modestly hopes audiences come to the show ready for the best night of their lives. “It will be the sort of night that is going to make every other night until their death a disappointment in comparison,” he promises. “There’ll be stand-up, songs, sketches and characters from my weekly ABC TV spots. You won’t need to know anything about politics to enjoy it. But if you happen to know the whole constitution by heart, there’ll be plenty for you as well.”

This is Sammy’s first solo tour since 2017’s award-winning Hero Complex, an autobiographical story about a gardener, a schoolboy and a mutual love of the comic book character, The Phantom. That show broke the shackles of the ‘musical comedian’ moniker and Major Party will further show his comedy chops. “I feel like I’ve been chasing different audiences my entire career, and this show is the chance to bring them all together,” he says. “So, whether you’re five-years-old, 15, or 65,this is one party I hope you don’t miss. Actually, maybe not the five-year-olds, get a babysitter for those ones …”

While the youngsters in the audiences may need to stay at home, it was actually Sammy J’s own children that helped bring to life his Playground Politics show in the first place. “ABC asked me to do daily updates during the last election, and wanted to know if I had any ideas,” he says. “I said ‘sure’…. I was lying. So, I asked for 24-hours. During that 24-hours, like most days, I watched Play School with my kids. Then I had the idea of blatantly plagiarizing it, and the rest is short satirical format history.”

When he is not delving deep into the minefield of political drama, Sammy J has been scoring himself ARIA Awards – he has three – and in 2018 released his debut novel, The Long Class Goodnight. As part of his weekly ABC TV shows, he snuck into Malcolm Turnbull’s final press conference, just to eat a chocolate bar, and it’s this attitude to fun,irreverence and smart silliness he will bring to Sammy J’s Major Party.

It’s a show that promises to have it all, harking back to the old school variety shows we love. Sammy J will have you singing along to Playground Politics, getting inspired by Government Coach, and flexing your core beliefs with some National Yoga(audience participation warning).

Then I had the idea of blatantly plagiarizing it, and the rest is short satirical format history.”

When he is not delving deep into the minefield of political drama, Sammy J has been scoring himself ARIA Awards – he has three – and in 2018 released his debut novel, The Long Class Goodnight. As part of his weekly ABC TV shows, he snuck into Malcolm Turnbull’s final press conference, just to eat a chocolate bar, and it’s this attitude to fun,irreverence and smart silliness he will bring to Sammy J’s Major Party.

It’s a show that promises to have it all, harking back to the old school variety shows we love. Sammy J will have you singing along to Playground Politics, getting inspired by Government Coach, and flexing your core beliefs with some National Yoga(audience participation warning). It’s a jam-packed night of song, stand-up and shenanigans, brought to you by the first person in history to have licked every Australian State and Federal Parliamentary building.
