Quotes

Bill Bailey: [explaining through song what it's like to be an owl] I am death. A wing├Ęd beast. I am born on the velvet wings of night and I'm hungry for a feast. I am the nemesis of the vole. My heart is black as coal. You could kill me with a trowel. I am an owl.

Another resounding success for genius comic Bill Bailey!
13 July 2005 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

I've said it before and I'll say it again - Bill Bailey is a comedy genius! While this show, like all other stand-up comedy performances, has now been eclipsed by Bill's masterpiece show 'Part Troll'; Bewilderness still marks a hilarious resounding success for the comedian, and I can guarantee a good time to whoever watches it. Bailey's performance works because he uses a broad range of ideas and means to show his sense of humour. Aiding him for the show is his guitar and keyboard, and while nothing he does with either instrument in this show comes close to beating the likes of the BBC news or the depressing guitar song he did in his 'Part Troll' show, Bailey still manages to garner laughs with his musical prowess. He has a manner and more importantly a face that lend themselves brilliantly to comedy, and Bailey always makes best use of both these assets. His facial expressions are priceless, and his comic timing really couldn't be better. His style of humour is unique, in that it's very surreal and the comedian is guaranteed to catch you completely off guard with his wit on numerous occasions. If you like stand-up comedy; you'll love this!
