Nothing is quite as it seems in the gaps between how we imagine life and how it really is, and this silliness of the human mind is the golden thread that holds together this hilarious show. With tales of disastrous holidays, infuriating daily struggles, and general grumbling about One Direction, Baileylures the audience into the surreal corners of his mind with his trademark blend of stand-up storytelling injected with wacky songs. With Limboland expect lots of musical mash-ups, including a Kraftwerk-inspired version of Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball that you’ll never forget. This is a perfectly polished formula and Bailey’s ability to get everyone giggling is ‘a genuine marvel’ (Herald Sun).
Limboland follows Dandelion Mind (2010)and Tinselworm (2007)in the long catalogue of Bailey’s successes in stand-up, though his appearances on television with Never Mind the Buzzcocks and as Manny Bianco in Black Books have exposed his unique and sharp-witted comedy to a global audience. Winner of the Best Live Stand-Up award at the British Comedy Awards (1999), the profoundly silly Bill Bailey is ‘an absurdist well-suited to our absurd times’ (Sydney Morning Herald).
Limboland will open at The Vaudeville Theatre on Thursday 10th December and will run until Sunday 17th January 2016.
Recommended forThis opportunity to see one of Britain’s greatest working comics in action shouldn’t be missed. Fans of Bill Bailey’s other stand-up shows and work on television will see the comedian’s astoundingly quick style in full-flow with Limboland.
