Outrageous comedian Kevin Bloody Wilson returns to New Zealand this February with his “Almost Awesome Tour”, featuring special guest artist Jenny Talia from Australia.

Kevin Bloody Wilson’s show is not just a concert. For many it’s a full-on special event, providing the chance to laugh and sing along again with an hilariously familiar friend, while for others it’s the opportunity to put a tick against “see Australia’s most unique international comedy legend” on their bucket lists.

Since releasing his first hugely popular album “Your Average Australian Yobbo” in 1984 and hit songs like “Hey Santa Claus”, Kevin Bloody Wilson has become a comedy institution around the globe, as testified by an extensive fan base stretching from the Australian Outback to Buckingham Palace.

Billy Connolly refers to him as “the world’s funniest Australian”. So many of his songs from over 21 gold and platinum albums released so far of politically incorrect irrepressible and irreverent musical humour quickly became the soundtrack to many childhoods, and have been covered by many other performers over the years. Although embarking on “the first of his farewell tours” a couple of years ago as he contemplated retiring, his fans will not let him so he is still performing an average of 120 concerts worldwide each year. His current Almost Awesome tour is already booked through to 2020.

Kevin’s journey to politically incorrect stardom started innocently enough – just a guy with too much time on his hands changing the words to other people’s songs, and writing a few of his own, purely for the fun of it, and at a time when people were still being arrested for using most four letter words in public.

Kevin Bloody Wilson found himself being ostracised for his rude and crude performances when he first started, but 30 years, countless live gigs and millions of album sales down the track, he has not only found his niche, he’s grabbed a beer cooler and a deckchair and made himself really bloody comfortable in it! These days his recordings can be found everywhere from Outback Australia to Antarctica, from big-rig road trains to the console of Prince Charles’ Aston Martin. Even more remarkable is that his fame and many albums achieved platinum status with absolutely no traditional media support.

Reading through Wilson’s autobiography, DILLIGAF (Do I Look Like I Give a F***) released in 2011, it is very interesting to see the sort of things that he sang and was arrested for three decades back. Today, these sorts of lyrics and words are commonplace and no longer censored on public television. Wilson’s autobiography is both humorous and a lesson in the history of censorship in Australia. It is ironic that 30years ago someone that was ostracised or arrested for their particular brand of entertainment has eventually become highly sought-after by sporting and corporate Australia as a motivational speaker and nominated in 2010 as Australian of the Year – all for doing exactly the same thing! Wilson is so well regarded that he’s listed in the Who’s Who and his entire body of work has been preserved for future generations with the National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra.

But when it all boils down, Kevin simply loves performing and the enjoyment of his audiences singing along with him to his much-loved songs. This latest concert tour promises all that and more together with featured guest, Jenny Talia from Australia (aka Kevin’s daughter who has inherited a big dose of her father’s humour genes). Two and a half hours of side splitting humour has to be the best value laugh in town and a must-see for anyone wanting to see absolute original Australian comedy.

A reliable ancient family automobile will have an inexpensive premium than just a flashy sports vehicle.
