Bill Bailey’s Larks In Transit is headed to Australia and New Zealand

Twenty years of travellers’ tales have gone into British comedian Bill Bailey‘s latest show, Larks In Transit, which will be touring Australia and New Zealand later this year.

His 15 date tour will see him travel around Australia, sharing tales from two decades as a comedian, from politics, to philosophy, to a painful encounter with Paul McCartney.

There’s plenty more to Bailey than just stand-up though, with scene stealing roles as Manny in Black Books, and as (spoiler!) twin detectives in Hot Fuzz, appearances on quiz shows Never Mind the Buzzcocks and QI,  and several documentaries under his belt. He’s also dabbled in music too, producing his own album Bill Bailey in Metal, and headlining at Sonisphere music festival in the UK, with a hastily put together band, as well as his on-stage musical antics during stand-up gigs.

With so much to draw on, audience members across Australia are sure of a great show, with plenty of Bailey’s signature tangents and trademark intelligence on display throughout the night.

Larks In Transit will open in Christchurch on Thursday October 20th, with the Australian leg of the tour beginning in Darwin on Sunday 30th October. The tour will then move throughout Australia in November and December, with the final show in Canberra taking placing on Thursday 8th December. Tickets are on sale now.
