Bill Bailey is a multi-award-winning British comedian, songwriter, musician, actor, presenter and animal welfare campaigner and for the fist time ever he brings his ‘Larks in Transit’ Show to the Gleneagle INEC Arena on December 28th.
Larks in Transit is a compendium of travellers’ tales and the general shenanigans of twenty years as a travelling comedian. With musical virtuosity, surreal tangents and trademark intelligence, he tackles politics, philosophy, the pursuit of happiness, death metal, ringtones… and an excruciating encounter with Paul McCartney. Two decades of life as a comic filtered through what the Daily Telegraph calls ‘the brainiest comic of his generation’.
Bill’s extensive career ranges from international stand-up comedy tours to performing on television, film and radio, duetting at HRH Prince Charles’ 60th birthday with Robin Williams, and performing at the Royal Albert Hall with a full BBC Concert Orchestra. He played Manny in the BAFTA award winning Black Books, and he was for many years team captain on the popular BBC music panel show Never Mind the Buzzcocks. He is a regular panellist on the hit BBC panel show QI, along with writing and presenting numerous TV wildlife documentaries.
