Bill Bailey is one of my favourite comedians. He has always been fantastic on "Never Mind the Buzzcocks" and on "Black Books" particularly, and he is just as good doing stand up as he does on comedy programs.
The music is fantastic - both funny and actually of a very good quality. Some of the sections without music are a bit poor, and overall the first half of the show is good, but not great (other than for a few bits like the Disenfranchised Owl tune). However, the last 40-50 minutes are pure gold, the music and comedy are both incredible.
Overall a very good live show, and you could probably pick up the DVD pretty cheaply now, so why aren't you out buying it right now?
Best moments: Countdown music, South African lion SFX guy, Daytime Drum and Base Babylon and Midnight in Parliament Square.
