40 years since the release his quadruple-platinum selling debut album, Australian comedian/songwriter Kevin Bloody Wilson is heading back out on the road and is set to bring his 40 Years of Kevin Bloody Wilson with shows in Galway, Limerick, Dublin and The Telegraph Building in Belfast on Saturday 19 October 2024.
There are few international comedians today who shoot down political correctness with such comedic pin point accuracy as Australia’s Kevin Bloody Wilson.
While todays Age Of Outrage has his contemporaries ducking for cover over anything slightly controversial, Kev crushes PC eggshells with the grace and diplomacy of a wounded buffalo. Kev’s famous DILLIGAF* approach to PC is a breath of fresh air, direct, clever and outrageously funny. He doesn’t mince words and he doesn’t rely on subtlety to get his point across. In his new show FUPC, Kev tackles political correctness head on. His BS filters and brilliant comedic mind enables him say it as he sees it in a way we wish we all could. His directness totally embodies the spirit of Australian humour.
In recent times, Kevin Bloody Wilson has become a sought after social commentator and the media’s ‘go to guy’ for his comical, yet common sense take on political correctness. After a recent appearance on Australia’s 60 minutes programme, host Charles Wooley commented, “If political correctness was a disease, Kevin Bloody Wilson would be the cure”.

He’s performed everywhere throughout his career, from outback pubs and shearing sheds to the hallowed halls of the London Palladium, packing out major venues wherever he performs. An evening in the company of Kevin Bloody Wilson is must see for all of us desperately in need of some PC Pushback. Kev’s is not just a concert performance, it is a full-on event and an opportunity for all of us to tick off our bucket-list – see a ‘national institution ’in concert, done!
It’s been well documented that all of KBW’s non PC Bawdy Ballads contain an infectious singalong quality that stay with you forever. Kev’s FUPC World Tour Show includes a raft of brand new songs that are bound to have his audiences in stitches, from the opening tour title track, FUPC, to his unique take on on the worldwide #Me Too Movement in his hilarious new fan singalong, ‘DIY Me Too!’ Just like DILLIGAF, Dick’taphone, Hey Santa Clause and Living Next Door To Alan, these newly crafted songs are guaranteed to become Kev Klassics. His music has helped define our Aussie humour – Billy Connolly describes his little Aussie Mate as “The World’s funniest Australian”.
Kevin Bloody Wilson’s story is now one of legend. Always a larrikin, he originally wrote and recorded songs on a homemade cassette tape for his mates, simply songs penned about his experiences living in the Outback and working nights as a part time musician and an electrician by day in the gold mines in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. Sales of this initial cassette skyrocketed to the tens of thousands before it was transferred to vinyl, where it proceeded to sell tens of thousands more. It was just the start of a career that Kev admits he never saw coming. and he has never looked back
