Press Clippings

Aged just 25, Clydebank comedian Bridges has already been honing his craft for eight years and become one of our fastest-rising stand-up stars. This hometown gig before 10,000 fans at a sold-out SECC arena shows why, covering everything from Lady Gaga and clothes shopping to his relationship with his father. His routine on the differences between Brits and Americans is particularly rafter-raising.

In the final episode of the affable Scottish comedian's documentary series, Kevin Bridges takes a look at some of the issues which have inspired his funniest stand up. He plays five-a-side football with a friend who fled tragedy in Africa to start a new life in Scotland, considers the country's reputation for violence with the director and actor Peter Mullan and discusses where he might be today had he not become a comedian. Jack Dee also makes an appearance to discuss religion. Varied and absorbing.

Kevin Bridges: What's The Story - a promotional push

It's a strange hybrid of meandering documentary and recent stand up footage, which makes the show feel a little like a promotional push rather than a programme in its own right.

Kevin Bridges: What's the Story review

These shows where a comedian takes us into their life always seem a bit risky; after all, it's the performer on stage people pay to see. Do we really need to see the person behind that? What if they turn out to be a bit of a git?
