Kevin Bloody Wilson on politics, career and the word f***
KEVIN Bloody Wilson is on a mission to save the world from global boredom.
And he plans to do it by "making people laugh at s*** they shouldn't".
The Australian funny man is bringing his Second of the Final Farewells tour to Warwick tonight, armed with plenty of his classic hits and some new material.
Wilson said he was looking forward to performing for his Warwick fans.
"I never do the same show twice, but they can certainly expect songs that expand my career such as Hey Santa Claus and Living Next Door to Allan," he said.
"I'm also recording a new album, so I'll sing four or five new songs from that."
His new material is sure to not disappoint fans.
"My wife reckons I'm getting worse with some of the new material on my album," he said.
"People are afraid too much of laughing at stuff these days. I don't give a f*** about that. I've managed to leapfrog political correctness for my entire career."
With his DILLIGAF attitude, Wilson has brushed off many of the critics of his 'crude' humour.
"They don't come to my shows. They don't buy my albums," he said.
"F*** 'em. They're not entitled to an opinion."
Over his 30-year career, Wilson hasn't been afraid of getting political.
His take on the federal election campaign is sure to be shared by his Warwick fans.
"It's a f****** joke," he said.
"I'm sure there are hundreds of thousands of Australians thinking what the f*** are these guys doing. They're both on the same f****** bus."
But there are some things that not even he finds funny.
"Take what's happened in Orlando," he said.
"It's gross and f****** vile. I empathise with the people involved."
Despite the title of his tour, Wilson swears we haven't seen the last of him.
"I'll do more comebacks than Johnny Farnham," he said.
"I'll out-Farnham Farnham."
Part of his mission is to save our Aussie sense of humour, which he believes some are trying to "defuse".
"Our irreverant sense of humour comes from our convict days," he said.
"Our first fleeters were of British stock. They were good-humoured people.
"They would have got through a lot of hard times by humour.
The comedian described himself as a normal bloke who's seen what political correctness has done to the planet.
"It's absolutely f*****," he said.
"We're getting too serious about things.
"I honestly think being able to say f*** out loud is quite therpeutic for some people."
When he looks out at his fans singing along, reliving the memories that come with his music, Wilson describes it as the best feeling in the world.
"I'm getting to the stage now we're in forgetting the f****** words," he said.
"Having people sing along saves my a***.
"I think a lot of people remember my songs as good times."
A huge plus for Wilson has been hearing about how he's made his fans happy.
In a world full of chaos, tragedy and violence, he's proud of the fact he's been able to make people laugh.
"I feel good about that," he said.
"The amount of people I meet these days who say thank you for helping me through a bad day - that's a huge big plus in my life, and it's why I'm still a happy bloke too."
Wilson will play at the Warwick RSL Memorial Club tomorrow at 8pm.
Tickets are $55 each.
