Kevin Looking Up

Kevin Kropinyeri Bio

Australia’s premier Aboriginal comedy star, Kevin Kropinyeri is 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 tours Australia constantly, appearing all over the country, including at some of its most remote communities, and is a bona fide star of the Indigenous performing arts, appearing at the Deadly Awards at the Sydney Opera House six years running. As well he is a regular feature on the mainstream corporate, club and festival circuits and a Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow regular.

He is also steadily building a substantial TV and media profile with a long list of special guest appearances.

What others are saying about Kevin:

“DEADLY FUNNY” 2008 Melbourne International Comedy Festival

“This is only the second time this competition’s been held, and winner Kevin Kropinyeri was an obvious winner. 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 – and there would have been uproar had he not taken the crown”

Steve Bennett – “The Chortle” UK Comedy Guide
