Bill Bailey: Cosmic Jam
23 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was the debut stand-up show from the comedian that has since starred in the Part Troll stand-up show, Black Books and Never Mind the Buzzcocks. Bill Bailey at the time was hardly known, but he certainly made quite an impact with the theatre audience, and indeed television audiences alike. He is just the best at some observational, on the spot and musical jokes, he can play pretty much any instrument that is given to him (probably why they wanted him to replace Sean Hughes in Buzzcocks). The highlights for me are the Starsky and Hutch music joke with guitar effects, and the song near the conclusion, "Human Slaves in an Insect Nation" (Aaaaagh!) with an appearance of Lenny Henry in Pieces' Martin Trenanman. Before or after you've seen his Part Troll show, see this! Bill Bailey was number 7 on 100 Greatest Stand-Ups. Very good!
