KEVIN Bridges apologised to fans after losing his temper with a heckler at one of his shows last week.

The Clydebank comedian lost his cool with a man who told Bridges to “remember his roots” while asking him for a photograph during his sell-out show on Monday, November 16.

Bridges had agreed to have his picture taken with the man but told him to get back to his seat after he asked to come on stage.

The comedian said: “Remember my roots? F**k off. Do you think this is my roots? Pictures and people asking for selfies. That’s all I hear every day: ‘Kev, can I get a picture, give us a picture Kev.’

“People are not here to see you. The deal is you buy a ticket for the show, you don’t buy me.

“What do you know about my roots?”

Bridges, who grew up in Hardgate, later apologised to fans, saying: “I’m sorry you had to see that. It’s been a long tour. I need a holiday.”

Post reader Deborah Cooper was in the audience at the very gig.

She said: "During his show Kevin Bridges had to put up with idiots shouting out wanting photo  and an autograph. Kevin actually signed fans book mid-show and it was only at end of show he eventually raised his voice to fan.

"We all paid to see his and we were respectful of other fans who paid to see him, Kevin also said for fan to go to stage door and he world sign anything and could get as many photos as he wanted. Kevin was only making a point to the guy."

Bridges has shown he has clearly not forgotten his Bankie roots throughout his sell-out ‘A Whole Different Story’ tour, regularly referring to the town in his gags.

During his Hydro shows Bridges has been telling audiences how his ‘bit’ was Clydebank when he was younger and that he had now moved to Glasgow’s Westend.

“The children have names like ‘Sebastian’ in my new bit,” he said.

“Where I grew up in Clydebank if you heard that name you would expect to see a Dalmation bounding up.”

An audience member also sent him a Tweet live at the end of his November 9 show, which read: “Did I see you coming out of the bookies in Duntocher in a pair of trackie bottoms?”

Kevin laughed and responded: “I don’t need to go to the bookies, I’m f****** loaded.”

Around this time last year Bridges visited his St Peter the Apostle High School to meet with pupils and talk about his new autobiography.

The big-hearted comedian used the intimate show to raise money for St Margaret’s Hospice, ensuring all funds from the £5 tickets went to the hospice, alongside his own generous donation.

Kevin delighted the audience with a trip down memory lane when he was interviewed by his former business studies teacher Audrey Donnan.

The following month he was in Old Kilpatrick signing autographs for fans when he officially opened Glen Cafe – after it had been taken over by his pal Ryan Halpin.

Bridges is currently in the middle of his 100 date UK tour. He played the last of his 16 sold-out shows at the SSE Hydro last week.

The comedian’s latest DVD, Kevin Bridges: A Whole Different Story was released on Monday.
