I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the university at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me.

Kevin Bridges is in a league of his own as he blows the roof off the SSE Hydro in front of 12,000 fans with his brand-new show, A Whole Different Story. Recorded as part of his UK and Ireland tour and 16-night residency at Glasgow’s newest venue. Kevin is in explosive form as he mixes economic theory, art history and diet tips with the rigors of growing up and adapting to his new found place in the world. It is a comic masterpiece.
