Bill Bailey Returns to Helsinki May 23rd!
Bill Bailey, musical comedian extraordinaire and “Manny” from Black Books is returning to Helsinki on May 23rd with his new show, Quampeddler!
Bill was last in Helsinki in November at Apollo and the show sold out quickly so this time we have it at Peacock!
Bill Bailey had doubts about the modern world, but these have now grown into qualms. He will be channeling these feelings of unease and apprehension with the help of religious dubstep, his folk bouzouki, horntallica, a re-appraisal of some of the world’s greatest works of art and perhaps a dub version of Downton Abbey. He looks at the consequences of lies, the unending search for the higgs and the hiding skills of dentists. Bill tries to confront his cluster-qualm of living in a time of spectacular ignorance and rare planetary alignment. Come savour this broth of anxiety with Bill Bailey, Qualmpeddler.
This show has the all classic Bill Bailey elements, trademark musical mash-ups, multi-lingual riffs, films, songs, philosophizing and silliness on a grand scale… Plus one amazing owl.
“He’s a genius, full stop. Calling this Swiftian satirist, versatile multi-instrumentalist and gifted actor merely a comic genius is like calling Michelangelo a house painter.”
