Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of We Need to Talk About... Kevin Bridges. Aged 17, Kevin Bridges walked on stage for the first time and brought the house down. He only had a five-minute set but he discovered he really could earn a living from making people laugh.

Kevin began life as a shy, nerve-ridden school-boy. Reaching his teens, he followed his true calling as the class clown. This was a guy going somewhere - off the rails seeming most likely. Kevin's trademark social commentary, sharp one-liners, and laugh-out-loud humour blend with his reflections on his Glaswegian childhood and the journey he's taken to become one of the most-loved comedians of our time.

An amusing insight into an interesting character

Kevin Bridges is funny and this is a big part of the book. However, there is more to this book than straight laughs. Kevin also gives insights into the world of stand up comedy - good and bad - and the reality of chasing your dreams in a competitive world.

The truth about making it.

Kevin was honest about making it in comedy. I laughed a lot and could relate to a lot of the Scottish lines.

The “8 Mile” of Comedy

Loved the honesty, appreciation and respect written/read in this. Oh aye the story telling wasn’t crap either. Like all good books, worst part is when they end… no doubt prior to Knighthood “Sir Kevin Bridges” will put another chain of cafes through their WiFi paces to bring another book into of ears or palms.

Legend

This is absolute class from start to finish! Kevin describes his life in a relatable, night out with your mates style that really pulls you in to what it was like to grow up in his trainers. You won’t regret it.

Honest, Raw & Hilarious

I remember kids like Kevin from my own school days in Scotland, but he was definitely different. Bright and observant with a prodigious gift for comedy, he also reminds us just how much hard work goes into being a professional comedian let alone a top flight one. I laughed and cried my way through it. If you’re lucky enough to get the chance to see Kevin perform live, do it; you will definitely not regret it. This man absolutely deserves his success.
