About the show
With decades of national and international touring behind him, Bailey has spent a good portion of time on the road. Drawing on his real-life experiences as a travelling musician and comedian, he has assembled Larks in Transit, a show of hilarious stories, reflections and politics. True to form, the show is peppered with music and songs, ensuring a varied and incredibly funny evening.
Bill Bailey began working the touring circuit before being offered his own television show on the BBC in 1998. Since then, his screen credits have included hosting Never Mind the Buzzcocks, as well as regularly appearing on panel shows such as QI and Have I Got News For You, as well as roles in comedies including Black Books, Hot Fuzz and Run Fatboy Run.
Last appearing in London in 2015 with his show Limboland at the Vaudeville Theatre, past successful tours have included Tinseltown, Qualmpeddler, Bewilderness, Dandelion Mind and more. Expect a night of hilarity, as Bailey fashions a symphony from a ring tone, tells us the story of Old McDonald and a re-imagining of the Stars and Stripes.
Larks in Transit has previously toured Australia and New Zealand, where it received praise from audiences and critics alike. The production runs for a strictly limited month-long season at London’s Wyndham’s Theatre, playing from 3 December 2018 to 5 January 2019.
