Without doubt Kev Orkian is one of Britain’s premier comedians and all-round entertainers. Having originally trained and performed as a classical concert pianist, Kev has refined his skills over many years to develop a unique and versatile comic repertoire. Combining a quirky sense of humour and a great singing voice with his virtuosity on the piano, he is now a fixture on the UK after dinner speaker circuit.
Kev performs regularly as a stand-up comedian in some of the best comedy venues in the country such as Jongleurs, Highlights and London’s Comedy Store. He has taken his one man show to The Edinburgh Festival, winning the Spirit of the Fringe award in 2011 for his brilliant “Guilty Pianist” character.
Kev is now an entertainer with a worldwide profile. He was honoured to appear as a comedian at a special function celebrating HRH Prince Philip’s 89th birthday in 2010 and he has performed privately for the royal families of Oman, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Kev has toured the globe with his History of The Piano tour, entertaining crowds in such far-flung places as Australia, South Africa, and the US and has headlined at the prestigious Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas.
He has shared the stage with an impressive array of top line entertainers, including Lionel Richie, Katherine Jenkins, Matt Lucas and Dame Edna herself, and wherever he has performed he has earned rave reviews and critical acclaim. With a background performing on the West End stage in musicals such as Boogie Nights, Me & My Girl and Grease, Kev knows how to gauge and play to his audiences and makes an incredibly amusing after dinner speaker.
