West Australian comedy legend Kevin Bloody Wilson is set to turn political correctness upside down on his new tour F.U.P.C when he returns to the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre on July 12.

It is a long time since Wilson began writing songs for his mates in the mining town of Kalgoorlie Boulder more than 30 years ago.

Now an ARIA award winner, Wilson is thrilled to be bringing his show back to the WA regions.

“Oh, too right, this is the first time in three years we’ve done the full show throughout the South West,” Wilson said. “I’m excited to play a bunch of new songs aimed at political correctness like F.U.P.C for starters and D.I.L.L.I.G.A.F which is an old one I’m bringing back in.”

Not one afraid to speak up, Wilson said his shows allowed people to have a laugh at things that today were classed as not politically correct.

“I declare the theatre a P.C. free zone, so you don’t have to worry about that bull.... other people seem to focus on so much,” Wilson said.

“Do you know what happens when you offend someone? Absolutely ... nothing.

“We all just continue on having a good old time in what I call a D.I.L.L.I.G.A.F day.”

Wilson said he had simply had enough of how politically correct society was today.

“The inspiration is in the fact that everyone has had a gut full of PC,” Wilson said.

“One of the things I’ve learnt is there’s only a minority of people who are trying to force people to think the same way and in my opinion it’s just stupid.”

Wilson said he had turned heads taking on political correctness head first, but his international fans seem to take a liking to his songs.

“They seem to get it and we all laugh at the same stuff and we need to laugh,” Wilson said.

Proving to still be one the of the most popular comedians going around, Wilson said he would be “flat out” performing for the next few years.

“The F.U.P.C tour is booked right through until 2021,” he said.

“We’ve got a Christmas special sitting in the wings waiting to be aired so there’s lots of exciting things happening,

“I just love what I do, I still consider it a hobby and I don’t consider it hard work.”
