Kevin Bridges

After Dinner & Event Speaker (in association with SpeakOut!)

 

After his hugely successful appearance in 2009 on Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow. Kevin Bridges landed a spot as a guest on Friday Night with Jonathon Ross. Another appearance on the Roadshow saw Kevin take the "Headline" spot which was a surefire sign that we were going to be seeing a lot more of Kevin Bridges. The rest is history.

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

2005 saw Kevin reach the finals of every New Act competition, most notably Channel 4's ''So you think you're funny?'' In 2006 Kevin performed his first full length solo show at the Glasgow International comedy festival, to a sold out audience and critical acclaim. Moving into bigger venues every year, Kevin continued to sell out his hometown festival in 2007, 2008 and 2009.

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

Kevin appeared on ''The World stands up'' and ''The Comedy store'' (Comedy Central) which led to his first big TV break as a guest on Michael Mcintyre's comedy roadshow, which aired to over 5 million viewers and led to Kevin being the fastest act to sell out all 28 nights of his 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 Edinburgh Comedy Awards ''Best Newcomer''

2010 was an even bigger year and by November Kevin had released his first ever DVD, recorded at Glasgow's 10,000 seat SECC Arena. It became a best seller.

It was in 2015 when Kevin broke box office records with his tour, A Whole Different Story went on sale. He won awards from Ticketmaster and Ents24 for the Fastest Selling Ticket of the year. The tour saw him play over 145 dates, including an incredible 16 nights at The Hydro in Glasgow, with over half a million ticket sales across the whole tour.

There is no doubt that Kevin Bridges is now one of the most popular and sought after comedians in the business and his ability to host and speak at corporate events is building him a reputation as the first choice for many of our clients
