COUNT ARTHUR STRONG...And It's Goodnight From Him

COUNT ARTHUR STRONG...And It's Goodnight From Him

Count Arthur Strong in ‘And It’s Goodnight From Him’

Part one of Count Arthur Strong’s farewell tour. (Of the World. Potentially. (Certainly Jersey).


Having consulted with top Harley Street specialists, the St Anne’s Jombulance Brigade and Professor Twitty, that did covid, (the bald one), Count Arthur Strong has decided to gradually phase in his farewell tour over a, yet to be specified number of parts, because of the likelihood of people doing ‘Cold Turkey’ in theatres over him. Whilst partial, himself to the odd bit of cold turkey, it is banned in most theatre auditoriums, apart from in the north east, because of it getting trodden in to the carpets etc, and the cumulative smell. The management would appreciate your co-operation in this matter.


Join Arthur for this never to be forgotten start to his farewell tour in…

‘And It’s Goodnight From Him!’


‘Pure genius and pure tribute to the golden age of vaudeville’

ALFIE MOORE: A Face for Radio

ALFIE MOORE: A Face for Radio (14+)

Somewhere in a parallel universe little Alfie’s natural comedic performance skills were recognised by his doting parents who encouraged and developed his blossoming talent. After several years as a stage school brat Alfie’s angelic face was launched on stage and screen and the rest is history.

Meanwhile, in this universe Alfie Moore was told to stop messing about in class before being ‘encouraged’ into the grinding, grimy world of an apprenticeship in the Sheffield steelworks. When recession hit he traded steel for copper by joining Humberside Police.

Thirty years of shift-work, initially in the Sheffield steelworks and then as a copper on the beat (where he was punched in the face quite a lot), has left him with ‘a face for radio’.  A face not so much ‘lived in’ as inhabited by a settlement of squatters with little regard to property maintenance and repair.

In his 40s a surprising career shift turned middle-aged Alfie from street cop to BBC radio star. But when TV fame beckoned could he grasp it or was he past it?

 “…offbeat, revealing and very funny” You Magazine

“…thoroughly engaging, endlessly funny. His charisma shines through as bright and colourful as a twirling blue light. Mature Times

KEVIN BLOODY WILSON

KEVIN BLOODY WILSON (18)

KEVIN BLOODY WILSON:

INTERNATIONAL DILLIGAF DAY - 40 years of KEVIN BLOODY WILSON


Run time to be confirmed.


2024 marks 40 years since Kev’s first album was released (which went on to obtain quadruple platinum status)

20 albums later, this comedy icon’s fan base continues to grow with new generations of fans flocking to experience Kev’s PC free live shows.


Tiktok, YouTube, Facebook or in the flesh, however you consume your Kev, there’s no denying he is the master of musical comedy and sharing his DILLIGAF attitude and way of life has made him the world's favourite Aussie storyteller.


INTERNATIONAL DILLIGAF DAY… it’s every day!



There are few international comedians today who shoot down political correctness with such comedic pin point accuracy as Australia’s Kevin Bloody Wilson.


While todays Age Of Outrage has his contemporaries ducking for cover over anything slightly controversial, Kev crushes PC eggshells with the grace and diplomacy of a wounded buffalo.  Kev’s famous DILLIGAF* approach to PC is a breath of fresh air, direct, clever and outrageously funny. He doesn’t mince words and he doesn’t rely on subtlety to get his point across. In his new show FUPC, Kev tackles political correctness head on.  His BS filters and brilliant comedic mind enables him say it as he sees it in a way we wish we all could. His directness totally embodies the spirit of Australian humour.


In recent times, Kevin Bloody Wilson has become a sought after social commentator and the media’s ‘go to guy’ for his comical, yet common sense take on political correctness. After a recent appearance on Australia’s 60 minutes programme, host Charles Wooley commented, “If political correctness was a disease, Kevin Bloody Wilson would be the cure”.

(*DILLIGAF - Do I Look Like I Give A F+#@)


                                               

Australia - Canada - South Africa - New Zealand - England - Ireland _ Scotland - Wales -  Kevin Bloody Wilson is revered around the globe for his Outback Aussie Outlaw take on life. He’s performed everywhere throughout his career, from outback pubs and shearing sheds to the hallowed halls of the London Palladium, packing out major venues wherever he performs. An evening in the company of Kevin Bloody Wilson is must see for all of us desperately in need of some PC Pushback. Kev’s is not just a concert performance, it is a full-on event and an opportunity for all of us to tick off our bucket-list – see a ‘national institution’ in concert, done!


It’s been well documented that all of KBW’s non PC Bawdy Ballads contain an infectious singalong quality that stay with you forever. Kev’s FUPC World Tour Show includes a raft of brand new songs that are bound to have his audiences in stitches, from the opening tour title track, FUPC, to his unique take on on the worldwide #Me Too Movement in his hilarious new fan singalong, ‘DIY Me Too!’ Just like DILLIGAF, Dick’taphone, Hey Santa Clause and Living Next Door To Alan, these newly crafted songs are guaranteed to become Kev Klassics. His music has helped define our Aussie humour – Billy Connolly describes his little Aussie Mate as “The World’s funniest Australian”.


           

In a world almost drowning in a tsunami of Political Correctness, Kevin Bloody Wilson stands out as a beacon for PC Pushback.


Considered by Billy Connolly as‘The Worlds Funniest Australian’, Kevin Bloody Wilson is as dry and as rough as his Outback heritage.


His latest stage performance F.U.P.C. spotlights Political Correctness for what it is and how he sees it….a joke!


Kev’s 20 Albums of self penned Bawdy Ballads have generated millions of sales and his global legion of fans have elevated KBW to Rock Star Status.


American Audiences will revel in a knee-slapping, outrageously funny night of our Kev’s common sense take on Political Correctness.    


Social Justice Warriors, Snowflakes and PC Advocates are invited to stay home………The rest of us are gonna have a ball!


Kevin Bloody Wilson’s story is now one of legend. Always a larrikin, he originally wrote and recorded songs on a homemade cassette tape for his mates, simply songs penned about his experiences living in the Outback and working nights as a part time musician and an electrician by day in the gold mines in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. Sales of this initial cassette skyrocketed to the tens of thousands before it was transferred to vinyl, where it proceeded to sell tens of thousands more. It was just the start of a career that Kev admits he never saw coming. and he has never looked back.
