What happened to Kevin Bloody Wilson? Inside the life of the foul-mouthed funnyman years after he was arrested for his politically incorrect routines

He is regarded as one of Australia’s most iconic comedians, best known for his politically incorrect jokes and long career.

But what is Kevin Bloody Wilson up to these days?

Now age 75, the self-proclaimed ‘Crown King of Kalgoorlie’ still performs his sketches at venues around the world.

He recently performed his FUPC tour in six states around Australia and in the UK.

Kevin is also preparing for a tour of New Zealand, with 18 shows scheduled.

He ventured into comedy in the ’70s when he recorded a cassette tape for his mates about his experiences working as an electrician in the mines of Western Australia.

In the ’80s, he put together a cassette of parody songs titled Your Average Australian Yobbo, which featured tracks such as I Gave Up W**kin’ and That F**king Cat’s Back.

The tape was wildly successful, selling thousands of copies and launching Kevin’s comedy career.

While his larrikin persona won him fans across the globe, he was also arrested on several occasions for his un-PC routines.

In fact, one of Kevin’s most famous tracks sprang from an act of rebellion – the kind the likes of Shane Warne and David Boone would once win sponsorship deals over.

These days his eyebrow-raising comedy is regarded as art, with Kevin earning a nomination for Australian of the Year in 2010.

Prior to his first-ever Canadian tour, the funnyman was reportedly given explicit instructions not to use the C-word onstage.

He then made urgent, last-minute modifications to his set, scrapping his planned opener to debut a new track, titled ‘You Can’t Say C**t in Canada’.

He said in 2018: ‘I can’t go on TV anymore as it’s so bloody PC … or do The Sydney Comedy Festival. The audience is too mainstream and gets offended.

‘Banks, corporate bosses don’t book us anymore for fear we might offend staff.’
