The Glaswegian comedian started performing at a local comedy club when he was 17. He dropped out of St Columba’s High School the year after.
Bridges’ stand-up career took off when he was given his first television break. In June 2009, he appeared on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow.
He also made an appearance on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross. A couple of months later, he appeared on The Comedy Store. After that, he made a regular appearance on Have I Got News For You.
As well as appearing on TV, Kevin Bridges has performed in several comedy festivals. During his time in Glasgow, he sold out almost every show in his hometown. His last two tours have broken box office records.

After his debut at the Edinburgh festival, Bridges was nominated for a Scottish Comedy Award. He also won the Ticket of the Year award from Ticketmaster.
There’s no question that Scottish stand-up comedian Kevin Bridges has exploded onto the national scene as a youngster. He started performing at age 17 and quickly moved up the ranks to arenas across the UK.
When he was 18 he made it to the final of the So You Think You’re Funny competition at the Edinburgh Fringe. This marked his first appearance on mainstream television. After a few appearances on Comedy Central, he appeared on the BBC One’s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow.
His humour is rooted in working-class self-deprecation. Its sharp material and natural edge earned him praise and recognition from peers and critics alike.
He made his television debut on the BBC’s The World Stands Up in 2008. Following this, he appeared on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy roadshow. In 2010, he participated in Channel 4’s Comedy Gala. All of the performances at this festival sold out in an hour.

Gigs at the Scottish Events Campus (SEC)
SEC (Scottish Events Campus) is the largest integrated conference and exhibition centre in the UK. It is located on the banks of the River Clyde in the heart of Glasgow. The complex was designed by the British architect Sir Norman Foster.
One of the most striking parts of the complex is the multi-layered roof of the SEC Armadillo building. It is the result of an innovative design based on interlocking ship hulls.
The Scottish Event Campus is made up of three main buildings. There is a concert venue, an auditorium and a bar. These are all well equipped with the latest in technology and service.
The Armadillo is a 3,000 seat auditorium which is part of the SECC complex. This was a building designed by award-winning architects Foster and Partners. It opened in 1997.
Another impressive piece of architecture on the campus is the OVO Hydro arena. It is Scotland’s premier concert and live entertainment venue. A circular indoor arena, it can host a wide range of events.
Most shows at the OVO Hydro (Scotland’s home of live entertainment)
Kevin Bridges is set to start his 16-show residency at OVO Hydro in Glasgow this September. The comedian burst onto the comedy scene in 2009, guesting on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow. With a razor-sharp outlook on the modern world and sharp one-liners, he has since become an arena-filling comedian.
During his last two tours, Bridges sold over 1 million tickets worldwide. He has won several awards, including the UK’s Ticket of the Year. His latest tour, Kevin Bridges The Overdue Catch-Up, includes thirteen nights at the Hydro in Glasgow.
In addition to his comedy career, Bridges is a Teenage Cancer Trust official ambassador. He was awarded a platinum artist award by the SEC, kicking off a new awards programme for the organisation.
Bridges’ performances at the Hydro have exceeded the expectations of his fans. During his 63 shows at the SEC, he has sold out 16 times. So, the audience was not disappointed when he played his final show.
