About the Author

Having started performing stand-up in 2004 shortly after his seventeenth birthday, Kevin Bridges has ascended the ranks and is now regarded as one of the UK's top comedians. He has made numerous television appearances on shows such as Live at the Apollo, The Jonathon Ross Show, Graham Norton Show and fronted his own BBC One series Kevin Bridges - What's the Story and the stand-up special Kevin Bridges: Live At The Referendum. He has won multiple awards and performed four critically acclaimed, box office record-breaking tours. His most recent tour included a staggering nineteen-night run in his hometown of Glasgow's twelve thousand capacity Hydro arena. Kevin has also released four chart-topping DVD's and his 2014 autobiography, We Need to Talk about Kevin Bridges, was a Sunday Times bestseller. Kevin will return to the stage in 2022 with his latest stand-up show which will coincide with the release of his debut novel.


Edgy, dark, funny and perceptive ... and very sharply observed. * The Herald *
One of the funniest stand-up comedians in world and now the author of a brilliant novel. Kevin's talent is starting to annoy me now. -- Rob Beckett, comedian and author of A CLASS ACT
Immensely readable, fast moving and an insight into two sides of Kevin Bridges, I really enjoyed it. Kevin's warmth and wit shine through in his first novel. Never a dull moment and an array of engaging, quirky characters. A funny and absorbing read with some great insights into the world of negotiating being famous. -- Jo Brand, comedian and author of CAN'T STAND UP FOR SITTING DOWN
I've just finished The Black Dog with a massive lump in my throat - what a brilliant book. Touching, raucous, visceral and really funny with some moments of real profundity. -- Harriet Tyce, author of IT ENDS AT MIDNIGHT
I love this book. Brilliantly drawn, believable characters of raw heart and honesty. Cannot recommend enough. -- Matt Coyne, author of MAN VS TODDLER
Vulnerable and raw - this is a beautiful debut novel from the king of comedic storytelling. -- Tom Allen, comedian and author of TOO MUCH
It's funny (obviously) and dark (obviously) but tender and surprising, too. -- Bobby Palmer, author of ISAAC AND THE EGG
Watching Kevin, I was sure he was born to be a stand-up comic, but reading his book it is clear he can do absolutely anything he sets his mind to. I look forward to visiting his Michelin starred restaurant and living on his self-built space community. Everything that is great about Kevin's stand up - the characters he creates, the unapologetic root in working class life, the straddling of worlds - is what's great about this book. -- Jon Richardson, comedian
