In 2009 Kev Orkian became a regular on the UK comedy circuit performing at well-known clubs such as Jongleurs where his comedy rendition of Elton John's 'I'm Still Standing' has been described as Comedy Gold and has generated standing ovations and received encores, as well as rave reviews for the originality of his act.
In May 2010 Kev Orkian took part in series 4 of ITV's 'Britain's Got Talent'. He performed his trademark Elton John and gained three YES votes from Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan, the latter of whom commented "That is one of the smartest things I've seen", winning himself a place in the live semi-final, although he didn't make it through to the final.
