He's supported tours for huge names including Tim Minchin, Frankie Boyle, WWE"s Mick Foley and William Regal, and Police Academy's Michael Winslow. While his own smash hit show, "Billy Kirkwood: Show Me Your Tattoo" has taken him to Ireland, America, Canada and Malawi.

As an in-demand MC Billy has hosted high-profile events including The Scottish Secret Policeman's Ball (8 years running), The Scottish Alternative Music Award, Scotland's Insane Championship Wrestling, and the Stan Lee Awards at the at Ka-Pow Comic Con in London.
