Tea, Coffee and Trouser Press Census - Bill's Tour Diary
Bill Bailey's (star of 'Black Books' and 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks') Part Troll tour has been a huge success playing over 60 dates throughout the country. Filmed at the Hammersmith Apollo, captures one of the country's best and most original stand-ups at the top of his game.
From the imagination of Bill Bailey, experience tinselworm - A visually stunning comedy and music extravaganza. Filmed at Wembley Arena at the end of a sell-out tour of the UK, it's everything you'd expect from Bill and more. Using huge screens, films and animation by award-winning film-maker Joe Magee, plus Bill's trademark musical inventiveness and verbal brilliance, this is quite simply the most spectacular one-man comedy show ever staged in the UK.
Bill Bailey's Remarkable Guide to the Orchestra
Comedian and classically trained musician, Bill Bailey joins forces with the brilliantly versatile BBC Concert Orchestra and musical maestro Anne Dudley, one of the UK's most celebrated composers and arrangers. The show, recorded at London's magnificent Royal Albert Hall, is Bill's own uniquely hilarious and irreverent guide to the sounds, styles, and instruments of the orchestra, with a wide and eclectic range of subjects, including music for 70's cop shows, sci-fi films, horror movies, news themes, plus some of Bill's own songs re-imagined for an orchestra, and including Anne's own specially written new works.
Featuring Bill's trademark musical interludes, observations and stories of the road, Dandelion Mind will be based loosely on the theme of doubt (or will it?), as we follow Bill from his real-life saga of being trapped by the ash cloud, to his barely contained rants about celebrity, TV, creationism and Michael Winner.
