Bill Bailey announces Hamilton show

After the 2016 sell-out tour, Larks in Transit, Bill returns to Australia and New Zealand in September this year with his new musicomedy show, Earl of Whimsy.

It has 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.

It’s also a journey of discovery. We find out where Knock Knock jokes came from, how we got days of the week, and why Nicky Minaj rejected a puffin sample for her latest single. There are lively audience discussions, a mass German singalong, and even some Cockney crab-dancing. Something for everyone.

Bill Bailey will perform his Earl of Whimsy show at Claudelands Arena on Tuesday, 25 September 2018.
