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

Earl of Whimsy will have Bill¹s trademark blend of satire and surrealism,
stories and dismantled jokes, crowd sing-alongs, weird instruments and
musical showstoppers. But there¹s a distinctly historical feel to this show.
With its tales of Britain¹s fortunes past and present, of ancient Viking
battles, of Shakespeare¹s contribution to comedy, and Bill¹s own ancestry,
this is both a mockery and a celebration of national identity.

Bill Bailey is a legendary comedian, musician and actor most well-known for
his brilliant live shows Dandelion Mind, Tinselworm, Bewilderness, Part
Troll, Qualmpeddler and Limboland plus his work on television in programs
such as Never Mind the Buzzcocks, QI and ABC TV¹s award winning Black Books.

In his diverse and celebrated career, Bill has travelled to South Africa to
record Baboons With Bill Bailey for an 8-part series for ITV. He has
performed at major music festivals such as The Bonnaroo Music and Arts
Festival where Rolling Stone magazine named this revolutionary entertainment
experience one of the 50 moments that changed the history of rock and roll.
He has also performed at the Sonisphere Festival in the UK alongside,
Slayer, Biffy Clyro and Metallica. As a result of this, the album Bill
Bailey In Metal was produced. A highlight of his career was filming with BBC
Natural History Unit in Indonesia and Malaysia for Bill Bailey¹s Jungle
Hero, a two-part documentary about naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace.

Bill continuously tours around the world selling out theatres throughout the
UK, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. 2018 will see Bill developing
more ideas for film and television with his own production company, Glassbox
Productions who are responsible for bringing to the screen Tinselworm, Bill
Bailey’s Remarkable Guide to the Orchestra, Dandelion Mind and Qualmpeddler.
