Scene News: Kevin Bloody Wilson hits the road again in 2018 with his hilarious politically incorrect Almost Awesome tour

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

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.
