“Effortlessly hilarious. He captivates the audience with his perfectly timed suspenseful silences and plain-talking sense-making” - ★★★★ - Three Weeks

“Hutchinson’s trump card is the way he interacts with the audience, rolling with every ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ his material generated, giving a dynamism and spontaneity to his performance” - Chortle

 


Kevin Precious

Kevin Precious


Kevin Precious has had something of a long and varied career in the business of show, making his first tentative foray into the world of entertainment as a teenage bass playing dirt bag in the working men's clubs in his native city of Hull.

Venturing South, he continued his musical adventures, and in the 1990s, Kevin set up a 'Pop Quiz' in a trendy boozer in Camden, which rapidly became laden with celebrities and culminated in him being asked to organise and compere the NME's first national pop quiz. It was these events that would later inspire a move into comedy. Sometime thereafter he took the plunge.

Combining comedy with time as a mature student, and later a full-time teacher, Kevin finally took the plunge to turn full-time in 2005, and has since toured throughout the UK and performed dates throughout Europe. Meanwhile, in 2008, he compered the ‘Loaded Lafta’ awards presenting awards to Jimmy Carr, Adam Buxton, Paul Kaye, and Harry Enfield, to name but a few.


“If he were any more laid back he'd fall over - we fell over laughing” - The Evening Standard

“Kevin's stage charisma and poise set him head and shoulders above the rest” - The Times
