Bill Bailey

Bill Bailey

Bill Bailey is a comedian and actor known for his role in the cult sitcom Black Books, as team captain on the anarchic music quiz Never Mind the Buzzcocks, his appearances on the freewheeling panel show QI and his many critically acclaimed UK and international stand-up tours… and most recently, was crowned Strictly Come Dancing champion. He is a veteran of UK festivals.

 

Bill’s comedy is a fusion of the surreal and the intelligent, blending stories, poetry, and deft wordplay that takes aim at the absurdities of our world set against an impressive array of weird and wonderful instruments. Music is the defining feature of his live shows, where his expertise allows playful interpretations of classic styles like Tom Waits singing Old MacDonald, or Kraftwerk singing the Hokey Cokey… as the Sunday Times says, “Comedy’s Mozart”.
