Back to the Southern Hemisphere.

British comic, actor and musician Bill Bailey returns to New Zealand in November for the world premiere of his brand new live show, Limboland.

The gap between how we imagine our lives to be and how they really are is the subject of Bill’s new show Limboland. With his trademark intelligence and sharp wit, he tells tales of finding himself in this halfway place. From his countless global travels, he recounts the hilarious saga of a disastrous family trip to Norway to see the Northern Lights. He rails against a world that doesn’t match up to our expectations and contemplates the true nature of happiness.

And no Bill Bailey show would be complete without music, so we have Bill’s version of the protest song, a heart-rending country and western ballad played on a Bible, and a fabulously downbeat version of Happy Birthday.

“Always hirsute and always hilarious, Bailey is approaching the status of a national treasure.”
The Guardian Guide


Bill is best known to New Zealand audiences for his stand up shows, his sell out tours, and his appearances on television in shows including QI and TV’s award winning hit,Black Books, in which he played the increasingly deranged ex accountant Manny Bianco opposite fellow comic, Dylan Moran.

“Bill is an unalloyed pleasure, a treat for the funny bone, the brain and the ear”
The New York Times


In 2012 his summer was spent filming with BBC Natural History Unit in Indonesia and Malaysia for Bill Bailey’s Jungle Hero, a two part documentary about naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace, who came up with the theory of evolution at the same time as Darwin, yet who seems to have been erased from history. Transmitted in 2013 on SBS, this was very much a passion project for Bill, whose interest in his hero was sparked some 13 years earlier whilst travelling in his favourite part of the world.

His hard work and passion was celebrated earlier this year as Bill and his Jungle Hero team were the big winners at the 2014 Royal Television Society West of England Awards. The team took won the “Best Specialist Factual Programme”, “Best Special Effects & Graphics” and Bill picking up “Best Male On-Screen Talent”.

“A hobbit with a wicked sense of humour”
The Telegraph


2014 will see Bill continuing to develop more ideas for film and television with his own production company, Glassbox Productions (formed in November 2007), who are responsible for bringing to the screen Tinselworm, Bill Bailey’s Remarkable Guide to the Orchestra and Dandelion Mind.

“He is, quite simply brilliant”
The Scotsman
