    Bill Bailey in Bangkok

    ..and Pattaya & Phuket



    Star of Black Books and Never Mind the Buzzcocks, British comic Bill Bailey is coming to perform a standup show in Bangkok.

    Bailey will draw on more than 20 years as a traveling comedian as part of a two-hour set at The Westin Grande Sukhumvit on Apr 5.
    Tickets for the show as part of the Magners International Comedy Festival are available on bit.ly/2FCnlRP priced at B1,000-3,200.


    The wispy-haired comic is known for his routines where the jokes jump from topical to political to observational, combining razor-sharp critiques of society and musical comedy that often veers into the absurd. His long career has included high-profile stints on the '00s sitcom Black Books, as well as panel shows such asNever Mind the Buzzcocks and QI.



    Bailey will follow up his Bangkok performance with further shows in Pattaya (Apr 7) and Phuket (Apr 9).
    Bangkok's comedy lovers are currently spoiled for international visitors, with confrontational US stand-up Doug Stanhope taking the stage this Sat, Mar 17. Limited tickets are still available here.

    I saw him in London at a corporate function, must be around 20 years ago. Obviously, he had not yet become famous. Anyway, bloody brilliant- real funny guy. Well recommended.

    I'd rather see Stanhope.

    Did anyone here go?

    I posted it up thinking it was next month. Because someone posted a link in another thread to BK magazine, which upon a closer look, was 3wks out of date.
    I saw the Bill Bailey news and just looked at the dates 5th, 7th, 9th, assuming it to be May.


    His looks and observational faux-leftie-esque humour make it hard not to laugh. Doesn't take himself seriously....like many Brit so-called comedians.

    Looks like they did the usual bang-up job of publicising it.

    He is also a regular on the comedy quiz format QI.

    Very witty different, his breathless yet nonchalant delivery unique, sample below

    Knew he was coming for a couple of weeks. They're crap at advertising stuff but there's a few places to keep up to date with that kind of stuff.

    Dara o Briain replied to a tweet a few days ago saying he will come to Bangkok.
