Aussie icon Kevin Bloody Wilson is Helping Prevent Global Boring with his Almost Awesome Tour With special guest Jenny Talia from Australia

August & September Dates

46

Aussie comedian Kevin Bloody Wilson is one of few funny-men who totally embody the spirit of Australian humour. He’s revered as an iconic Aussie around the globe and there would be few proud Australians who don’t know the words to his popular songs. He’s performed around the world, from outback pubs to the hallowed halls of the London Palladium. Now Kev is back and he is Helping Prevent Global Boring with his latest Almost Awesome tour.

As anyone who knows the larrikin performer, he definitely not ‘almost awesome’ himself – but an aptly named tour opens up for a whole range of run on the road. Audiences will be in for a treat as the prolific entertainer traverses his extensive back catalogue, performing 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, (plus many more songs, which can’t be mentioned in this press release as their expletives will get blocked by email firewalls).

Kev says audiences can really expect anything to happen. “There will be lots of full frontal nudity from me,” he jokes. “The show revolves on its own axis, I never know night from night what is going in the show. A lot of ad-lib goes in, it depends what is happening in the world between now and then.”

Kevin Bloody Wilson’s story is 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 three decades and Kevin is a household name throughout Australia and the world. It’s interesting to know that 30 years ago he was getting arrested for performing his politically incorrect songs in public. Times have changed though and it was only three years ago (in 2010) that Kevin was deservedly nominated for Australian of the Year. 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. 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. He has sold out shows around the world and is constantly earning new fans, who are envious of his DILLIGAF attitude.

Don’t miss Kevin ‘Bloody’ Wilson as he hits the road again on his Almost Awesome tour throughout 2017.
