It's hard to believe that the Cosmic Jam show featured in this DVD set is actually a decade old. Being Bill's first ever live performance, we can witness the makings of a man who would soon undoubtedly become one of Britain's finest stand-up acts.
He slots right into the flow of things despite his initial nerves (if you can call it that), and whether he's hammering at a keyboard, turning his hands into an animal puppet role-play, or going off on a random tangent about weasels that must leave the audience frightened and confused, he always exudes the aura of a born, natural performer.
The second disc contains a more recent gig 'Bewilderness', which is equally if not more entertaining than the title performance, with some hilarious observations on owls, service stations (AKA cathedrals of despair) and Stephen Hawking, not to mention a rare performance of a selection of 80s hits on the kazoo.
For those who have seen the equally brilliant 'Part Troll' show, a couple of the jokes will be familiar on both discs, but the rest is entirely new material.
Bill is a joy to watch, a fascinating and intelligent creature who excels at picking apart his own little world with comedic genius. And don't miss out on the 'Which Shed?' game on the Bewilderness disc, not to mention the equally amazing biography.
