Did You Know?


Bill Bailey: [Unisex Chip Shop - a tribute to Billy Bragg] I used to buy my chips from an oppressive chip shop regime. The girl who worked there, she seemed happy, But I knew it was not what it seemed. Do you want salt and vinegar, was what they made her say, But in the language of the ghetto, That means, Help, I'm a woman in chains. I wanted to free her. In my dreams I would see her. Running naked through the woods round Rainham, If I had some tigers I'd train them. To protect her From the sexual fascism ...

One of the funniest things ever made
5 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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.
