Following a forced touring hiatus due to the global pandemic, Bill Bailey is delighted to announce his long awaited return to the live stage. “The finest stand-up comedian this country has to offer,” (The Times) Bill will be bringing his brand new live show EN ROUTE TO NORMAL to UK arenas in December 2021.
“Bailey live is a joy to behold.”
The Evening Standard
“Still one of the funniest and most brilliantly original comedians around.”
“Hilarious, unmissable... leaves you gasping.”
The Sunday Times
How did we get here? How do we find our way through this? And exactly who are we again?
In this new show, Bill ponders these and other questions that this moment in history has thrown up and tries to see a way through the weird unreality of our new world. Tracing lines through chaotic moments in our past, Bill seeks out parallels where human resilience and our ability to endure has got us through times of strife.
He recounts his own experiences of dealing with isolation, including his thoughts on the ‘sounds of lockdown’. Through music, songs, and memories, Bill considers (among many other things!) our changing priorities, the wonder of dogs, how little things can keep you on track and his new-found love of skydiving.
EN ROUTE TO NORMAL is not just a funny, heartwarming mix of stories, music and history, but a personal mission to find our way through these Strange Days!
