Kevin Bridges

Despite having not set foot in a comedy club before his first open mic spot in 2004, Kevin's natural gift for comedy ensured he quickly became a regular at major comedy clubs up and down the country.

Dubbed as ‘brilliant’ by Billy Connelly, Kevin first made his debut at The Edinburgh Playhouse on BBC1’s ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’ in 2009. Overnight success followed with Kevin selling out his run at the Edinburgh Festival in just a day.

Kevin's astonishing rise to success continued in 2010 – when he recorded his debut DVD at a sold out Glasgow SECC arena, in front of 10,000 adoring fans. The DVD was released in November 2010 and went on to out-sell Frankie Boyle and Billy Connolly.

In 2011 he became the host of Channel 4’s ‘Stand Up For The Week’ and headlined an episode of ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’ from the Glasgow King’s Theatre. In 2012 he has also hosted the long running series of ‘Live At The Apollo’ and presented his own six-part documentary ‘Kevin Bridges – What’s The Story’ all for BBC1.

Kevin’s success keeps growing with a sell out Australian tour at the start of 2014.
