A raucous, earthy, in-depth look at one of the funniest and most controversial Australian entertainers of all time - a comedian who has refused to bow to the pressures of prim political correctness.
'The world's funniest Australian.' - Billy Connolly
'I love Kev. My favourite is "Livin' Next Door To Alan".' - Paul Hogan
'"Hello John" is the funniest song I've ever heard in my entire radio career.' - John Laws
A long time ago, a long way from anywhere, in a West Australian mining town called Kalgoorlie, the legend of Kevin Bloody Wilson was born. It all started innocently enough - just a guy with too much time on his hands changing the words to other people's songs, and writing a few of his own, purely for the fun of it.
Twenty-five years, countless live gigs and millions of album sales down the track, Kevin Bloody Wilson has not only found his niche, he's grabbed a beer cooler and a deckchair and made himself really bloody comfortable in it! These days his recordings can be found everywhere from Outback Australia to Antarctica, from big-rig road trains to the console of Prince Charles' Aston Martin. And, remarkably, many albums have achieved platinum status with absolutely no traditional media support.
Dilligaf (Do I Look Like I Give a F***) will catapult you on a remarkable, side-splitting roller-coaster ride alongside a unique Australian icon. If you buckle up and enjoy the journey, you won't ever want it to stop. But when it's finally over, you almost certainly will be changed forever with the positive, inspirational and pretension-hating spirit of the Dilligaf philosophy coursing through your veins.
Kevin Bloody Wilson has been listed in Who's Who, his entire body of work has been preserved for future generations with the National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra and he is now a highly sought after speaker and motivator for sporting and corporate Australia. It seems ironic that twenty-five years ago, Kevin Bloody Wilson was being arrested for performing his songs in public, yet on Australia Day 2010 he was officially nominated for Australian of the Year for doing exactly the same thing.
