Excellent item, arrived very quickly, thank you. Just a bit of a laugh on a long drive. I ordered this thinking I was getting the mainly musical tracklisting shown in the photograph, but the item sent was actually a stand-up set. It is a mix of songs and spoken routines with some banter between. We also have limited stocks available of the Ultimate Collection in different packaging.
They are both excellent, but make sure you are buying the one you actually want! The ultimate Bailey. See all 4 reviews. Unlimited One-Day Delivery and more. Learn more about Amazon Prime.

No eight According to comedy folklore, after a reviewer once criticised his act for its lack of jokes, Bailey returned the following night, at Queen Margaret College , Edinburgh, to perform a set composed entirely of punchlines.
Stubbs later quit to pursue a more serious career, and in Bailey performed Rock at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with Sean Lock , a show about an ageing rockstar and his roadie , script-edited by comedy writer Jim Miller. Bailey almost gave up comedy to take up a telesales job. The show led to a recording at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London which was broadcast in on Channel 4 as a one-hour special called Bill Bailey Live. It was not until that this was released on DVD uncut and under its original title.
It marked the first time that Bailey had been able to tie together his music and post-modern gags with the whimsical rambling style he is now known for. Is it Bill Bailey? In , Dylan Moran approached him with the pilot script for Black Books , a Channel 4 sitcom about a cold-hearted bookshop owner, his nice-guy assistant, and their socially awkward female friend.
It was commissioned in , and Bailey took the part of the assistant Manny Bianco , with Moran playing the owner Bernard and Tamsin Greig the friend, Fran. Three series of six episodes each were made. When Sean Hughes left his long-term role as a team captain on Never Mind the Buzzcocks in , Bailey became his successor. His style quickly blended into the show, possibly helped by his background in music.
He soon developed a rapport with host Mark Lamarr , who continually teased him about his looks and his pre-occupation with woodland animals. During this time he also left his position as "curator" of the Museum of Curiosity , and declared his intention to "retire" from panel games, although he has since appeared on QI many more times and hosted Have I Got News For You.
He has also appeared twice on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross. Walter is married to Jackie, played by Fiona Allen. In , Bailey presented a project about the explorer and naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace , in the form of an Indonesian travelogue. In , Bailey began touring the globe with Bewilderness. A recording of a performance in Swansea was released on DVD the same year, and the show was broadcast on Channel 4 that Christmas.
The show contained his popular music parodies such as Unisex Chip Shop, a Billy Bragg tribute, which he also performed with Bragg himself at the Glastonbury Festival , "three men in a pub" jokes including one in the style of Geoffrey Chaucer and deconstructions of television themes such as Countdown and The Magic Roundabout.
The Ultimate Collection A critical and commercial success, he then transferred it to the West End, where tickets sold out in under 24 hours, and new dates had to be added. Bailey expanded on subjects such as the war on Iraq. He also talks extensively about drugs, at one point asking the audience to name different ways of baking cannabis.
A DVD was released in Bailey performed a show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe entitled Steampunk. Bailey appeared at the Beautiful Days festival in August The petition reached its goal in the early days of January, and was sent to the producers. It was hoped that as the Tinselworm tour took him to Wellington in New Zealand where the film was in pre-production, that he would be able to audition. In , his world tour was entitled Qualmpeddler , which toured England as well as returning to Australia and New Zealand in August and September Bailey is a talented pianist and guitarist and has perfect pitch ; of this he has said.
Favourite instruments include the keyboard, guitar, theremin , kazoo and bongos. He also mentioned in an interview that he has achieved Grade 6 Clarinet. He was part of punk band Beergut ,  which he founded in with comedy writer Jim Miller and also featured Martin Trenaman and Phil Whelans, with Kevin Eldon as lead singer.
Bailey claims that he and the three other performers are a Kraftwerk tribute band called Augenblick. To mark the final gig of the Part Troll tour on 1 January , the band reappeared on stage after the "Das Hokey Kokey" joke to play an hour-long encore of music. He also has a plant named after him, Nepenthes x Bill Bailey. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other people with the same name, see William Bailey.
