Bill Bailey: Earl Of Whimsy

Event information

Following his 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'.

The show will see 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.

Here’s a recent round-up of how Bill is described: "a martial arts master in mufti", "the Jedi Knight of juxtaposition" or even "foremost comedy rock goblin" or is he, as Bill describes himself in his own words, an "Earl of Whimsy"? Whatever his title, this might be his cleverest, daftest, most eccentric show yet.
