A renowned and highly-skilled musician, actor and comedian (think Victor Borge, Dudley Moore, Victoria Wood), Kev has been a regular in the world of television, theatre, cabaret and pantomime for a number of years, beginning his career as a classical concert pianist, before making the transition into the world of comedy, solidifying his reputation as one of the art form’s biggest names.

His vast repertoire has seen him appear regularly alongside entertainers such as Lionel Richie, Dame Edna Everage, Matt Lucas and Katherine Jenkins and supporting some of the biggest names in UK comedy, appearing on stage across the world, including the Sydney Opera House, the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and Windsor Castle, by Royal Appointment.

He also starred in the West End in Fame at the Victoria Palace Theatre, and subsequent roles in Me and My Girl, Grease, Buddy and Boogie Nights. Taking the leap from musical theatre to comedy, Kev has been a regular on the touring circuit ever since and often appears at London’s most prestigious comedy venues. In 2010 he became a finalist of ITV’s hit show Britain’s Got Talent, a year after his pantomime co-stars Ashley Banjo and Diversity won.

Since then Kev has gone on to tour the world with his shows, including his Illegal Tour, The Guilty Pianist and headlined for 14 sell-out shows in Las Vegas and received private invitations to perform in front of HRH Prince Philip, HRH Prince Charles, Prince Andrew and members of Royal Families across the globe.

Kev also tours the cruise ships with his Stow Away act drawing up rave reviews with numerous cruise companies and is highly popular for corporate after-dinner cabaret and private events.
