New comedy show finds Bill in limbo
Comedian Bill Bailey’s global travels have inspired his new show, ‘Limboland’, which is heading for the Victoria Theatre, Halifax, in 2015.
 In the show, which played to sell-out crowds in Hong Kong and Singapore, Bill explores the gap between how we all imagine our lives to be - and how they really are.
 No Bill Bailey show would be complete without music so in ‘Limboland’ the comedian serves up his own version of the protest song, a heart-rending country and western ballad and a downbeat version of ‘Happty Birthday’.
 With his trademark wit, he recounts the hilarious story of a disastrous family trip to Norway to see the Northern Lights and contemplates the nature of true happiness.
 British Comedy Award winner Bill has enjoyed stage success for many years. His live shows ‘Part Troll’, ‘Dandelion Mind’, ‘Qualmpeddler’ and ‘Bill Bailey Live’ won him legions of fans and he is also familiar to TV fans from his roles in the hit black comedy ‘Black Books’, as team captain on ‘Never Mind the Buzzcocks’ and from the documentary ‘Bill Bailey’s Jungle Hero’.


Chuckles galore at evening of classic comedy

 Showing at Halifax Playhouse are Harold Lloyd’s best-received sound film ‘Move Crazy - 1932’, which will form the main feature for the evening. It tells the story of an aspiring movie star who exchanges the quiet life in Kansas for studio glamour.
