In What's The Story? the critically acclaimed Scottish stand-up Kevin Bridges sets out to discover the reality behind some of his on-stage material by looking at his life, his family and friends, his upbringing in the Scottish town of Clydebank, and the world he sees around him.
What's The Story? goes not only behind the gags but also gets closer to the man who is already becoming a household name.
Along with visiting Kevin's hometown of Clydebank to meet his parents, the series sees Kevin travel to Utah, go on a package holiday to Benidorm and perform a stand-up gig at his former school in front of 400 pupils and lots of his former teachers.
Bridges said: "I'm delighted at the news that someone at the BBC has deemed me worthy enough to be let loose with a camera crew in an attempt to make something funny. I'm excited at being given this opportunity and to be able to produce the show from Scotland is an added bonus. It'll be great to see something on national TV made from Scotland that doesn't have an appeal for witnesses before the closing credits."
The What's The Story? format was revived in 2014 for a Referendum Special. The comedian took to the road - and to the stage - to gather diverse views from the streets of Scotland.
