Personally for me, this was one of the funniest things that I've ever
seen, if not the funniest, and is also one of the funniest things ever
made. In this stand-up, you have one unique character full of
outstandingly original comedy, and comes up with some absolute gems
which he will forever be remembered for.
That character is Bill Bailey, the funniest person ever to come from
the West Country, and star of such shows as 'Black Books' and 'Never
Mind The Buzzcocks.' In this stand-up, he talks about the Masculine
Identity Crisis, Sirens, the flexibility of the human voice, and how he
craves disappointment because he is British. With the power of some
incredible gags and hilarious music, Bill Bailey produces what could
possibly be his best works.
Made after the success of 'Cosmic Jam', Bill Bailey's 'Bewilderness' is
a work of underrated genius, with some 'cult' moments, such as his
rendition of 'The Magic Roundabout', which is possibly Bill's best ever
comedy moment. It is a little bit slow to start off with, but from the
bit with the 'Sirens' in the middle, to the 'Chaucer Pubbe Gagge' at
the end, you will be lying in a pool of your own tears of laughter, as
I was...don't take that literally. If anyone is in need for some unique
comedy that will make them laugh on every viewing, this is a must.
