This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Community Reviews. Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order. I am a big fan of Kevin. From the same neck of the woods so i find him really relatable. Love his humour. Best thing to come out of Scotland in a long time. Great read. Very funny, honest and gives a great insight in to what goes into making it in the stand up comedy world. Kevin is incredibly relatable and surprisingly humble regarding his talent.

Very enjoyable and makes me want to go and see him on tour even more! Jan 05, Stu Schreiber rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book was recommended to me. I had no clue who Kevin Bridges was before I read the book. Found it fascinating. Get it a go. If you are like me the less you know about Bridges the more you'll probably enjoy it.

Dec 12, Jacqueline Carvell rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is one autobiography that I am eternally grateful did not have a ghost writer. Fame is known to change people and not always for the better, but in this book, Bridges show This is one autobiography that I am eternally grateful did not have a ghost writer.

Fame is known to change people and not always for the better, but in this book, Bridges shows himself to be a humble man with an affection for his family that is obvious when he talks about them. Cleverly taking inspiration from the title of another book We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver , Bridges not only tells us about his upbringing and journey into stand up comedy, but throws in his views on controversial issues such as benefits and immigration.

Kevin Bridges

Bridges story begins when he was a nervous little boy in nursery and there is a particularly hilarious anecdote involving a wendy house that had me crying with laughter. His reluctance for his mother to leave him continued into primary school and he soon found his escape at home playing various football games with his dad. Going into high school, he was a bright boy but was very much an old head on young shoulders. Over thinking everything was a major problem, even when, at 17 he ventured into a Glasgow comedy club and did his first 5 minute set.

I could relate to a lot of the stories in this autobiography as Bridges and myself are the same age. I too remember staying up late to catch Eurotrash on Channel 5 I think everybody around my age will admit to that! The anxiety and feeling like being funny was all you had — without it your friends would obviously drop you right?

He shows himself to have many endearing qualities, the most obvious being his humility. When taking part in two competitions early on in his career, he says that he struggled feeling that he had to impress the judges. Overall, I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. The quality of writing along with Bridges modesty, even when talking about his roaring successes, make for a read that is full of laughs and showcases his family values and down to earth attitude perfectly.

Jan 17, JK rated it it was ok. I was lucky enough to attend the book signing in Glasgow for this brand new autobiography. As you're all no doubt well aware of by now, I'm not a non-fiction girl by any stretch. Autobiographies are to me what sites are to Ray Bradbury, however Kevin Bridges is our national treasure and I was excited to read this one.

It would be easy to assume, as I did, that this would be a story packed full of laughs, pranks, and high-quality humour, however Bridges takes a far more serious line with his na I was lucky enough to attend the book signing in Glasgow for this brand new autobiography.

It would be easy to assume, as I did, that this would be a story packed full of laughs, pranks, and high-quality humour, however Bridges takes a far more serious line with his narrative. Although the jokes are there, along with some pretty hilarious anecdotes that made me laugh pretty loudly on a quiet train, we learn about what the 'wee dick' was like before he turns into the 'big dick'.

Bridges admits early on in the book that he was a horribly anxious and self-aware child; one who was paranoid about everything, but in particular, what others thought of him. We're then taken with him on his journey of overcoming these fears and pushing himself to achieve his dreams.

The book takes us up to the first gig at the SECC in , and stops there. The first half of the story focuses on his school days, his life as the class clown, and subsequently trying to make a living in the real world, hating every menial retail job he did. The second half speaks to us of his rise to stardom, making it in Glasgow, then making it across the UK, finally becoming the superstar he is now.

Bridges really conveyed how this wasn't all glitter and giggles; in parts he makes trying to make it on the comedy circuit sound absolutely horrific.

Talking to a crowd of five, all of whom were ignoring you, or sleeping in your own pish would definitely put me off it, but his work ethic really shone through as he did gigs for free just so he could polish up his set for next time. I felt quite nostalgic in the earlier stages of the book, being the same age as Bridges and growing up in a similar area.

I particularly loved how supportive his family came across to be, the obvious love they had in the house, and how grateful and humble Bridges sounded throughout the whole thing.

It's clear he feels he wouldn't be in the position he is today without the support of his family, and I think that says a lot about the person he is, and the people he has in his life. Bridges appeal to the masses is his incredibly relatability, and this comes across well in these pages, along with the feeling that he's just a genuinely nice guy. A gorgeous story of an ascent into dreamlike aspirations, this is a must for any fan of oor Kev.

View 1 comment. Jun 01, Paul rated it it was amazing. Nowhere near enough. Kevin Bridges is one of my favourite comedians. His dead-pan deliverance of jokes combined with observations I can relate to have had me crying with laughter. So to read about how different he was growing up and possibly still is came as a bit of a shock. His insecurities and complete lack of self confidence, hating having to go to school and be around other people, eventually acting as the class clown in order to try and fit in.

With most celebrity a 5 stars isn't enough. He just took the booking, so what is behind this? Are they just trying to get their bookshop in the paper and a pat on the back?

Normally people are just going: At the Chris Rock gig, ask anybody who was there, it was brilliant just sitting and watching something.

Like an affectation? You think, why am I still drinking here? Not in a bad way. But why are they still drinking there? Kevin Bridges: The Brand New Tour opens August For dates, see www. Facebook Twitter Pinterest.

SSE Hydro. But why are they still drinking there? This book isn't funny. If you are like me the less you know about Bridges the more you'll probably enjoy it. A bit too much about childhood, but then when you're writing your autobiography at the age of 27, there is only so much to write about.

His dead-pan deliverance of jokes combined with observations I can relate to have had me crying with laughter. He shows himself to have many endearing qualities, the most obvious being his humility.
