Scottish comedian Kevin Bridges will return to the stage next year, with two gigs lined up in Bristol.

The Scottish comic comes back to stand-up with his hotly-anticipated live tour Brand New.

Embarking on his biggest tour to date, Kevin will perform at some of the finest venues across the UK and Ireland from August 2018 – including a momentous return to his hometown of Glasgow – with two nights at The Bristol Hippodrome, in St Augustines Parade, on August 24 and 25 next year.

Kevin is no stranger to breaking box office records – when his 2015 tour, A Whole Different Story, went on sale at the end of 2014, it won awards from both Ticketmaster and Ents24 for the Fastest Selling Comedy Ticket of the year.

The tour saw him sell more than 500,000 tickets across 145 dates, including an incredible 16 nights at The Hydro, in Glasgow.

His 2012 tour, Kevin Bridges – The Story Continues, also smashed box office records, selling a staggering 45,000 tickets in one day and went on to sell-out an incredible nine-show run at the Glasgow SECC Arena as part of the 136 date tour.

Kevin has previously hosted much-lauded documentaries for BBC One including Kevin Bridges – What’s The Story in 2012, followed by a Kevin Bridges – What’s The Story Referendum Special, in 2014.

In the same year, Kevin hosted two BBC One stand-up specials on the Commonwealth Games and the Scottish Referendum.

2017 has seen Kevin travel internationally to perform a string of sold-out dates in Australia and New Zealand, as well as Singapore and Dubai.

Speaking about his return to stand-up comedy, Kevin said: “I’m delighted to announce that I will be back on the road in 2018 and performing some new material.

“It’s been three years since my last UK tour, three tough years of watching the world fall apart thus, I’ve decided, I need to get out of the house more and lend a hand in saving it.

“With amusing anecdotes and witty observations, I’m sure I can save the world ,or at least provide a decent enough night out. We’ll see. I’ll catch you there, folks.”

Kevin Bridges plays at the Bristol Hippodrome on August 24 and 25 next year. Tickets, starting from £31.65, are available at www.atgtickets.com/venues/bristol-hippodrome
