Aussie comedian Kevin Bloody Wilson is hitting the road again in 2018 on his hilarious politically incorrect Almost Awesome tour. As one of few funny-men who totally embody the spirit of Australian humour, 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.

As anyone who knows the funnyman performer, he definitely not ‘almost awesome’ himself – but an aptly named tour opens up for a whole range of run on the road. The tour will see him 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 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. 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 in 2018.
