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.

In 2006 Kevin performed his first full length solo show at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, to a sold out audience and much critical acclaim. Moving into bigger venues every year, Kevin continued to sell out his hometown festival in 2007, 2008 and 2009.

Kevin appeared on The World Stands Up and The Comedy Store which led to his first big TV break as a guest on the first series of Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow. It led to Kevin being the fastest act to sell out all 28 nights of his 2009 Edinburgh Festival run and adding a staggering 15 extra shows, which also sold out. A favourite with the punters but also the critics, Kevin received 5 star reviews and a nomination for the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Awards "Best Newcomer".

As well as having a strong hometown following, Kevin has taken his style of observational, cutting edge comedy all over the globe. He has performed throughout Ireland, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, USA and Canada along with tours of the Far East and Middle East.

In the six-part series Kevin Bridges – What’s The Story, Kevin travelled across the UK and US explaining the stories behind some of his best known comedy routines. The half hour show saw Kevin joined throughout the series by special guests including Micky Flanagan, Jack Whitehall, Sarah Millican, Jack Dee, James Cordon and Frank Skinner.
