A hobbit with a wicked sense of humour

Newcastle Live -

Music

British comic, actor and musician Bill Bailey returns to Newcastle in October for the world premiere of his brand new live show, Limboland.

In this new show Bill will explore the gap between how we imagine our lives to be and how they really are.

With his trademark intelligence and sharp wit, he tells tales of finding himself in this halfway place. From his countless global travels, he recounts the hilarious saga of a disastrous family trip to Norway to see the Northern Lights. He rails against a world that doesn’t match up to our expectations and contemplates the true nature of happiness.

And no Bill Bailey show would be complete without music, so we have Bill’s version of the protest song, a heart-rending country and western ballad played on a Bible, and a fabulously downbeat version of Happy Birthday.

Bill is best known to local audiences for his stand up shows, his sell out Australian tours, and his appearances on television in shows including QI and ABCTV’s award winning hit, Black Books, in which he played the increasingly deranged ex accountant Manny Bianco opposite fellow comic, Dylan Moran.

Bill stops  into Newcastle’s Civic Theatre on Thursday October 30. Book at Civic Ticketek on 4929 1977 or by visiting www.ticketek.com.au
