Kevin Kropinyeri is one of the fastest rising stars in Australian comedy. He's a one-man whirlwind that will have you holding your sides laughing, as he shares tales of growing up, marriage and the particular absurd challenges of life as an Aboriginal Australian family man.
A high-energy performer, Kevin is sharp, likeable, silly and measured; mixing keen observational standup with joyfully ridiculous physical comedy. Kevin has blasted his way onto the national standup scene in a ridiculously short time, initially making a splash, winning the Melbourne Comedy Festival's national Deadly Funny comedy competition.
In three head-spinning years since then, Kevin has established himself as a fully professional performer on the national circuit, touring for almost twelve months of the year and releasing his own live DVD.
Special highlights have included appearances at the Deadly Awards at the Sydney Opera House three years running, feature shows at the Dreaming Festival, compering the Long Walk events at Federation Square, and touring with the internationally famous Chooky Dancers.
Kevin boasts a rich background as a state grade footballer and basketballer, a visual artist and years as a youth worker ... and now, as the exciting new face of black Australian comedy.
His strong, animated delivery ensured the audience was in the palm of his hand as he talked about his hairiness and his domestic life. A comic natural, the crowd adored him.
