Yes folks, the UK’s best loved co­me­dian, the ven­er­a­ble Mr Bill Bai­ley is mak­ing a most wel­come re­turn to our shores and is per­form­ing shows at Claude­lands Arena in Hamilton and Bay­park Arena in Mount Maun­ganui.

Even bet­ter, we have a dou­ble pass up for grabs for his Claude­lands Arena show on Mon­day, Septem­ber 24 so you can wit­ness first hand the comedic ge­nius that is Bill Bai­ley.

The UK’s very own strag­gle­haired poly­math (a per­son of wide knowl­edge or learn­ing!), Bill Bai­ley, comes armed with his new comedy and music ex­trav­a­ganza, Earl of Whimsy. 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 pro­grammes such as Never Mind the Buz­zcocks, QI and ABC TV’s award win­ning Black Books.

In his di­verse and cel­e­brated ca­reer, Bill has per­formed at ma­jor music fes­ti­vals such as The Bon­na­roo Music and Arts Fes­ti­val where Rolling Stone mag­a­zine named this rev­o­lu­tion­ary en­ter­tain­ment ex­pe­ri­ence one of the 50 mo­ments that changed the his­tory of rock and roll.

2018 will see Bill de­vel­op­ing more ideas for film and tele­vi­sion with his own pro­duc­tion com­pany, Glass­box Pro­duc­tions, who are re­spon­si­ble for bring­ing to the screen Tin­sel­worm, Bill Bai­ley’s Re­mark­able Guide to the Or­ches­tra, Dan­de­lion Mind and Qualmped­dler.

Not be­fore he wows you with Earl of Whim­sey though! Be in quick, his shows al­ways sell out! Tick­ets from Tick­etek
