He's also appeared on panel shows like Have I Got News For You and Mock The Week, became a regular on Channel 4 comedy show Stand Up For The Week and, as well as Jonathan Ross, has guested on Live At The Apollo.

He said: "I was always scared I'd be funny with my mates but not with an audience. I said, 'I'm going to go on and try and make an audience laugh and if they don't laugh, fair enough. I'm the funny guy in the pub and I can move on with my life, get it out of my system.'"

The slog paid off and the big time beckoned when he appeared in the first episode of Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow in June last year.

It's only going to get better with the release tomorrow of his debut DVD, Kevin Bridges The Story So Far: Live in Glasgow, which documents the biggest gig of his career, performing to a sell out hometown crowd of 10,000 people at the cavernous SECC.

At school, he was always being damned with reports which spoke of his obvious intelligence but lamented he'd rather get a laugh than a Higher.

They are engraved on Baftas and British Comedy Awards sitting on the shelves, looking out from framed posters boasting sold out shows and industry awards for selling hundreds of thousands of units.

He said: "I always felt guilty because I never fulfilled my potential academically but that was pretty much the truth. I used to ask my mum and dad what bit the teachers thought was funny."

to somebody like Peter Kay or Lee Evans and they'll say they don't feel they deserve it, they still think that someone is going to say, 'Right mate, you've had a good time but back to the building site.' Maybe it's a working class thing. My dad's never been in showbiz. My mum's a home help. My mates are joiners and some of them got paid off recently. It's not really my world but it's become my world."

At his current rate of trajectory, he won't be going back to 50 seater venues any time soon. He's still buzzing off the release of his DVD, which he watched for the first time with his finger on the pause button, expecting to hate it.

It looks like Kevin has come from nowhere to become the next big thing but, like most overnight success stories, he can point to years of hard work.

Suddenly he's playing with the big boys and if he gives the impression of taking it all in his stride, there are times when he is less laid back than he looks. Then suddenly it's like something from a movie when the TV starts speaking to you and he's saying, 'Kevin's in the green room'.

It's been meteoric ever since. He became the fastest act to sell out all 28 nights of his debut 2009 Edinburgh Festival run, adding 15 extra shows to meet demand. He sold out more than 100 dates on his first ever UK solo tour and played to 25,000 people at this year's Edinburgh Fringe, notching up a 2010 Chortle Award for Best Breakthrough act and a 2009 Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination for Best Newcomer.

He was asked back and got the bug, eventually ditching his studies as he gigged Nike Roshe Run Reflective in comedy clubs all over the country, at times earning just enough money to cover his travel costs to make the next show.

Alan Carr. Jonathan Ross. Michael McIntyre. Jack Dee. Dara O'Briain. The names and faces which line the walls of the Open Mike Productions boardroom are instantly recognisable as comedy gold.

He said: "Everybody says you need 10 to 15 years in comedy but I'd done it for five in Scotland and I felt I was going to start regressing. I was headlining the Stand in Edinburgh and Glasgow, I was closing the comedy store in London, which is about as big as it gets for a stand up.

Kevin didn't know he was getting his slot until the day before, when he woke up with a hangover and his only suit covered in beer and the remains of the previous evening's party food. A trip to the dry cleaner sorted that out and suddenly he was on TV, stepping on to a rollercoaster which has yet to stop.

He said: "I felt sorry for the people. They came along because they had seen me on national TV so presumed I must be massive. Then they see me in the Edinburgh University janitor's office. Some of the shows were really difficult because it's a small room, and I'm used to playing them, but for the audience I'm suddenly the guy off the telly rather than just a comic. I think some of them got intimidated when I spoke to them but the big shows were great."

He tried to play it straight, studying for an HND in business administration, but his path was set when he made a successful debut in an open spot at The Stand Comedy Club on February 10, 2004.

"I've never taken comedy that seriously, the fear's never taken over me so what the hell, we'll do 10,000.

Because he was only 17, his dad accompanied him to his first gig and has encouraged him ever since, giving him a nod and wink when his mum tried to get him to set himself up academically first.

Kevin had booked his Edinburgh festival debut in a 50 seater venue which sold out in the first day. He booked bigger halls, up to 600 seaters, to meet demand and ended up performing his show 43 times.

"It all goes back to doing Michael McIntyre's Roadshow. I felt there was a buzz and I was going up and up but I knew I was ready to start coming back down. I needed that just to push me on again."

"Sometimes it does hit you but you don't want to lose that feeling. People say it's happened so fast but I'm the only person who has been to every one of my gigs. I've seen it every step of the way. I've done comedy my whole adult life, from when I was 17, and sometimes I've got to get back to being that wee guy who was carefree and thought,'I'll go up and have a laugh'. That's what keeps you going.

While he's clearly enjoying his success, you get the impression Kevin's most pleased for his family dad Andy, 62, who has rheumatoid arthritis, mum Patricia, 57, a care worker and his big brother John, 33 who have supported him.

went well and five and a half million people saw it. I remember Michael McIntyre backstage saying to me, 'it's going to go nuts.'" It did.

He said: "I took ages to watch it. I needed people to convince me it was good and I watched it with the pause button, ready to switch it off but I watched the whole thing. They've got the atmosphere, the buzz that comes through with a Scottish audience who want to see you do well."

The comedian said: "I said no to the SECC initially. I reckoned I could do a good gig but it was such a massive arena and all those people but I was only 22 at the time and I suddenly thought, 'Go on, do it and enjoy it'. I don't want to look back at 60 and think I was offered the chance to perform in front of all those people and I never took it.
