Bill Bailey – Earl of Whimsy
After the 2016 sell-out tour, Larks in Transit, the UK’s very own straggle-haired polymath, Bill Bailey, returns to Australia with his new comedy and music extravaganza, Earl of Whimsy. This tour will also feature Bill as one of the headline comedians for the Just For Laughs Sydney Comedy Festival at the Sydney Opera House.
Earl of Whimsy will have Bill’s trademark blend of satire and surrealism, stories and dismantled jokes, crowd sing-alongs, weird instruments and musical showstoppers. But there’s a distinctly historical feel to this show. With its tales of Britain’s fortunes past and present, of ancient Viking battles, of Shakespeare’s contribution to comedy, and Bill’s own ancestry, this is both a mockery and a celebration of national identity.
Bill Bailey is a legendary comedian, musician and actor most well-known for his brilliant live shows Dandelion Mind, Tinselworm, Bewilderness, Part Troll, Qualmpeddler and Limboland plus his work on television in programs such as Never Mind the Buzzcocks, QI and ABC TV’s award winning Black Books.
Tickets will go on sale on Tuesday June 5 at 1:00 pm.
