Kevin Precious

Kevin has had something of a long and varied career in the business of show, making his first tentative foray into the world of entertainment as a teenage bass playing dirt bag in the working men's clubs in his native city of Hull. Venturing South, he continued his musical adventures in the Big Smoke, playing in all manner of different outfits, the culmination of which saw him perform at the legendary Ronnie Scott's on a couple of occasions. He also managed to gain experience playing abroad in places as far flung as New York and Reykjavik, as well as an extensive tour of Japan. In the 1990's, Kevin set up a 'Pop Quiz' in a trendy boozer in Camden, which rapidly became laden with celebrities and culminated in him being asked to organise and compere the NME's first national pop quiz. It was these events that would later inspire a move into comedy. Sometime thereafter he took the plunge. Combining the life of a mature student and comedy, Kevin organized and promoted various events in conjunction with Brighton University. He was also involved in the organisation and compering of two series of 'House of Fun' for Meridian TV. Added to this, he MC’d the Sussex heat of the BBC New Acts Competition for four consecutive years. Working full-time as a teacher and head of department (Religious Studies), Kevin continued his comedy pursuits performing full weekends at notable venues such as Rawhide in Liverpool, the Glee in both Birmingham and Cardiff, and the Frog and Bucket in Manchester… as well as renowned London gigs such as the Banana Cabaret and Downstairs at the Kings Head, amongst others. It was during this time that Kevin co-founded the promotions agency, Barnstormers Comedy www.barnstormerscomedy.com In 2005, Kevin finally went full-time/professional. To date, he has done paid weekends for Jongleurs, Comedy Cafe, the Stand Edinburgh, and the Laughter Lounge Dublin as well as work for agents such as CKP, the Comedy Company, the Comedy Club and Mirth Control. In 2008, he compered the ‘Loaded Lafta’ awards presenting awards to none other than Jimmy Carr, Adam Buxton, Paul Kaye, and Harry Enfield, to name but a few. He has also performed at a number of European shows in places as diverse as Amsterdam, Maastricht, Budapest, Bucharest and Ibiza. More recently, Kevin has been performing his one man stand-up comedy show about teaching ‘Not Appropriate’ at a variety of arts centres, theatres, festivals and conferences. More recently, he proveided the warm-up for an event entitled 'An Evening with Dennis Skinner' which featured both the veteran MP and writer/commentator Owen Jones.
