Stand up comedy doesn't get any better than this
Bill Bailey's 'Part Troll' tour is quite possibly the funniest thing ever filmed. Ever. The amazingly talented comedian completely owns the stage, and gets laughs from a number of different means - most notably his guitar, keyboard and drum and bass sequences. It's amazing just consistently hilarious this show really is; I have quite a good sense of humour, but even I rarely see a show that will have me covering my eyes because I cannot bear to watch the hilarious facial expressions of Bill Bailey as well as hear what's coming out of his mouth for fear of being sick due to laughing so hard. Threads involving the BBC news, George Bush's words of wisdom being implemented into a drum and bass beat (which Bill calls 'Drum and Bush') and hilarious sequences on the general attitudes of British people and the terrorist organisation 'The Axis of Evil' are particular highlights. Bill Bailey is a very talented man, and quite how he manages to think of all this stuff is a mystery to a less talented mere mortal like myself. He's been blessed with a face and demeanour that lend themselves to comedy brilliantly, and this may be the finest performance in the entire history of comedy. My throat was screaming for mercy by the end of the show...and that's exactly what you want from a stand up comedian. 'Part Troll' is majestic in every respect.
