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’.
This summer he performed alongside Paloma Faith and Kaiser Chiefs at Live at Edinburgh Castle and in 2011 he gave one of the world’s biggest comedy gigs, appearing before 60,000 rock fans at Knebworth alongside rock gods Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. A long-time supporter of numerous charities, including Animal Rescue, he was recently presented with an honorary doctorate by the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland for his contribution to environmental issues. Bill’s recent gigs in Australia were praised for his ‘impeccable timing’ and ‘adept muscianship’.
