Book Description

9 Oct 2014

A comedian's autobiography?

I wonder if he's ever used humour to deflect from his insecurities?

To avoid being bullied?

Is there heartache behind the humour?

I wonder if he's a manic-depressive?

Tears of a clown?

Yes, all of that.

Discover the hilarious life-story of one of Britain's best-loved comedians in Kevin Bridges' brilliant memoir.

'First of all, I have never written a book before, you probably haven't either, so there we have it; a connection is established between reader and writer . . .'

Aged just 17, Kevin Bridges walked on stage for the first time in a Glasgow comedy club and brought the house down. He only had a five-minute set but in that short time he discovered that he really could earn a living from making people laugh.

Kevin began life as a shy, nerve-ridden school-boy, whose weekly highlights included a cake-bombing attack by the local youths. Reaching his teens, he followed his true calling as the class clown, and was soon after arrested for kidnapping Hugh Grant from his local cinema on a quiet Saturday night. This was a guy going somewhere - off the rails seeming most likely.

Kevin's trademark social commentary, sharp one-liners and laugh-out-loud humour blend with his reflections on his Glaswegian childhood and the journey he's taken to become one of the most-loved comedians of our time.

'. . . Hopefully now you'll take this over to the till and I can accompany you for the next wee while. That's the benefit of book shops, reading the little bit and then deciding if the author deserves to be part of your carefully selected 3 for 2 deal, or part of your plane journey, train journey, your next bath, your next shite.'

Praise for Kevin Bridges:

'The Best Scottish Stand up of his Generation.' The Scotsman

'A wonderfully dry and deadpan Glaswegian comic . . . one the most exciting talents to have emerged from Scotland since Billy Connolly' Guardian

'Kevin Bridges might just become the best stand-up in the land . . . he will go and deliver a one-liner that you want to jot down and frame' The Times

'Wonderfully sharp, assured stand-up from the preternaturally gifted young comic' Independent

Kevin Bridges, Scotland's 'young comedy prodigy' (Guardian), has followed a meteoric path, from his first five-minute set in The Stand comedy club in Glasgow to selling out the SECC to a record-breaking 100,000 fans. He was born in Clydebank, and still lives in Glasgow. Now, at the tender age of just twenty-seven, Kevin puts pen to paper to tell his story so far in his brilliant memoir, We Need to Talk About . . . Kevin Bridges.
