Aussie comedian Kevin Bloody Wilson is one of few funny-men who totally embody the spirit of Australian humour. He’s heading to town in March for shows at Hexham Bowling Club on the 11th and Doyalson-Wyee RSL on the 14th.
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. After a run of dates throughout Australia and New Zealand in 2013 and 2014, funnyman Kev is back with his First of the Final Farewell Tours – Perhaps in 2015.
Fans needn’t worry that Kevin is calling it quits though, he’s just out to set a record, contending against some well-known musicians for the ‘most comebacks’ title. “I see everyone doing their final concerts, so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon,” he explains. “I’ll probably get three or four years out of this and then I’ll start doing my comebacks.”
He’s also bringing a swag of new material with him on the road. The new album, aptly titled Wrong Wrong Wrong, was released at the end of 2013 and is a perfect representation of Kevin’s enigmatic style. While he’ll be running some of the new material by audiences, Kevin will still be performing all his 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.)
Kevin is the first to admit how much he loves touring Australia. “I’m pretty lucky,” he says. “I hate to use the world ‘blessed’ because it has religious undertones, but I get to travel the world with my best friend in the world – my wife Betty – and my daughter Jenny Talia (from Australia). It all started here – it all started in the bush.
