Where do I start with this DVD?! Bill Bailey is my favourite comedian, with his unique brand of humour. This was (at the time) his biggest show ever, playing to Wembley. I think he finds it hard to believe as well that he's playing to such a large audience, and often jokes about it through the show... It is a superb show, and with the aid of 3 big screens, they really enhance his comedy and gets his jokes across more. I have just finished watching the DVD again, for what must be the 16th time, and I still cackle with laughter every time. His brand of comedy is like no-one else's, his methods of questioning everything in life... As he says he "analyses too much. Or not enough..." (One of his many funny quotes) I think its worth getting the DVD alone just for the story about two hoodies approaching him, which has had me in stiches laughing on plenty of occasions. (I won't give it away though!)
And what has always made Bill Bailey so different from anyone else, is of course using music with his humour. He was the first comedian to do it, so I am still in awe of his musical excellence whilst adding humour into it as well. As this is his biggest show (at the time), he brings together all the things he has mentioned from his previous shows. That's why I wouldn't recommend this as your first Bill Bailey DVD. Whether its his mad idea of changing the News everyday to a light hearted jazz scat style, or playing the Pope's door bell, the joy of watching him is you'll never know what he does next.
I had read a few negative reviews before I bought this DVD, but I really don't see any problems, and I think some people just expect too much. This is real value for money, full of laughs, musical brilliance and fascinating stories and advice from Mr. Bailey. Also, as always there are the extras, if you haven't quite yet got enough, which again, are top notch.
I would love to go to one of his shows one day... Bill Bailey brings me utter joy; whether he is acting in my favourite show ever Black Books, or one the stage being hilarious.
So, ignore the other reviews, and get this DVD now!!
