Such a great evening last night seeing Bill Bailey play the Corn Exchange in Newbury. It was entitled “work in progress” and was a work-up of material ready for his forthcoming “Limboland” tour. From what I saw though it’s virtually complete AND very funny indeed.
I loved it not just because he was superb (and he really was), but also like me he doesn’t really do jokes … and so it was an education too see a master at work in that vein of comedy. Bill doesn’t just not do jokes though, he does non-jokes and they are hilarious. The Lionel Richie thread was brilliant for reasons that make no sense *laughing*
I want to see the tour proper though and see what he has tweaked and changed
