KEVIN BLOODY WILSON has been called many things.

Renowned for his crude sense of humour, he has been described as one of Australia's favourite larrikins and as a man with a g t of the gab.

Wilson has been part of the Australian comedy scene for the past 20 years.

He honed his skill for combining comedy and song at his hometown in Kalgoorlie where he performed self- penned songs for his mates in pubs, clubs and bars.

His bar stool philosophies, humour and values have translated instantly with fans around the globe and seen him perform at venues in Las Vegas and at the LONDON PALLADIUM.

He has sold more than 2 thmillion albums and remains SONY MUSIC 's third- biggest selling artist of all time in Australia and New Zealand.

Wilson recently returned from a three- month stint in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Canada where he played 56 shows in theatres to over 70,000 people in the UK alone.

In Canada he sold out venues everywhere he performed and a new live DVD and album was recorded on the last night of the tour before an audience in Dublin which will be released next month.

During his overseas tour, Wilson also featured as a guest on US talk and radio shows including THE BOB AND TOM SHOW which has an audience of seven million listeners.

Wilson also performed sold-out shows in theatres across New Zealand in August and September.

He is back on home shores and will travel throughout NSW on his DILLIGAF TOUR which will be followed by a national tour.

Catch Wilson at BELMONT 16FT SAILING CLUB on Saturday and SOLDIERS POINT BOWLING CLUB on Sunday.

He will return next weekend to HEXHAM BOWLING CLUB on November 15.

Tickets are on sale from the venues.
