I love him more than Carol Channing  
Bill Bailey was magnificent. I still enjoy Dylan's brand of rambling comedy more, but Bill is brilliant. And he interacts with the audience so well. He said "five minutes in and this is already the weirdest gig I've ever done." Mostly because people shouted sheepdog commands at him "GET IN BEHIND" and some one asked if his mandolin-shaped instrument was "Scientology related" (I can't remember the actual word).

He talked about Twitter. We were Twitter-buddies once. And then he talked about art, and doubting Thomas and I turned to Alison and said "Carevaggio" and then he not only talked about Carevaggio, but SHOWED us the painting on his projection screen and then he MADE THOMAS' FINGER GO IN AND OUT OF CHRIST. It was pretty brutal. :D

AND he was talking about barnacles and he was asking the audience what people knew about them and someone said "LIVE IN THE SHEA!" and he laughed and said "live in the sheep!? No you mean sea, don't you?" "Yeeaa" which he giggled about. And then someone said they had a big penis and he asked if anyone knew how big they were, and Alison shouted "SIX TIMES!" and he said, "big size? Are you all off your face? How big are they BIG SIZE!" And we loled. And then he played Gary Numan's Cars in the style of some French person and he honked horns and it was GENIUS. OH and he created a musical moment with an audience member with some musical instrument from Japan he had her play and then accompany. And he did Hallelujah in the style of Kraftwerk and I was loling at his German because it was fantastic. And awesome.

I love him a fantastic amount.

We saw him when he came to Bournemouth a whilse ago. We also loved his tv show about the introduction to the orchestra - very interesting and entertaining. He is indeed an exceptionally talented and very funny man.

Glad you had such a good time.

I love him because I was a fan of Dylan after watching Black Books. It's catching! He is just so amazingly talented!

I THINK SO! "Is it something to do with deutonomy?!" My face hurts from laughing.

"Here's the Leader of the Pedantic Society! 'I said that!' Sorry, Mate. 'Actually it's Society of Pedantics but I'll let that one slide'."

And Alison remembered the quote "The movie Saw is horrible. It's like...this guy gets drugged and he wakes up superglued to a wolf. And he has to beat it off with his own nephew! Or a guy who wakes up with his ears nailed to a washing machine about to go to the spin cycle. He has to turn it off but his fingers are too short so he has to cut them all off and glue them together to make a long stick so he can turn it off that way!" Brill!

I think I like Bill slightly more than Dylan...slightly.

I'm totallly a sucker for anyone who can play piano and guitar that amazingly!

I fucking love him.

I want to live in my pocket and love me forever.

I really don't want to go to work.

Amanda will get me through tho.

I should stop being such a lazy cow and sit down at Bartholomew and learn her songs properly.

Missed Me and Sex Changes should be first.

Or the rest of Astronaut.

I'm beautiful.

And I'm rambling.

Like a horse getting drunk and gambling.

That's fair! Everyone's different! And yeah, Dylan is not so much with the musical stylings, which I DO LOVE!


Amanda is amazing catharsis. And yes, I vote more songs SO I CAN SING WITH YOU. My reasoning isn't selfish or anything...


You are :D

I like rambling.

I don't remember the words they said, but I like 'phlange'!

You should put a spoiler tag on this, I'm going to see him too. Luckily I stopped reading after the first paragraph. ;)

Oh dude, I never thought of a stand up needing a SPOILER tag! But you got it, I'll hide it behind a cut!
