It's Official - NZ Loves Bill

It's Official - NZ Loves Bill

Due to popular demand – TWO EXTRA SHOWS have been announced in Auckland and Wellington for Bill Bailey’s LIMBOLAND NZ TOUR 2014. Tickets are on sale now!

He is, quite simply brilliant
The Scotsman

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

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