Bill Bailey, En Route To Normal, TotalNtertainment, Tour, Leeds

Bill Bailey is ‘En Route To Normal’ in 2021

“Still one of the funniest and most brilliantly original comedians around.” The Telegraph

How did we get here? How do we find our way through this? And exactly who are we again? 

In Bill’s new show, EN ROUTE TO NORMAL, Bill Bailey ponders this and other questions that this moment in  history  has  thrown  up,  and  tries  to  see  a  way  through  the  strange  unreality  of  our  new  world.    Tracing lines through chaotic moments in history, Bill seeks out parallels where human resilience and  our ability to endure has got us through times of strife.

He  recounts his own experiences of dealing with isolation, including his  thoughts on  the ‘sounds of  lockdown’.    This  led  to  a  greater  appreciation  of  birdsong  and  how  the  natural music  of  nature  in  general  has inspired many great  composers  throughout  history, and  perhaps led  to  the  creation  of  music itself.  Our  reliance on  technology has inspired Bill himself  to create dance  remixes of video

calling ringtones.

Through music, songs, and memories, Bill considers our changing priorities, the wonder of dogs, how  little things can keep you on track and rhapsodises on his new-found love of skydiving.

In a show who’s title Bill had written before we’d even heard of COVID, EN ROUTE TO NORMAL has  become not just a  funny, heartwarming mix of stories, music and history, but a personal mission to  find our way through these Strange Times!

January 2018 saw Bill unveil his brand new live show Larks In Transit to UK audiences with a five-month tour of  the country.  Larks in Transit replicated the success of Limboland before it, with sold out houses across Australia,  New Zealand and the UK.  Bill ended the year with a show stopping five-week residency at London’s Wyndham’s  Theatre over Christmas and New Year. 

In excess of 350,00 people saw  the show, which was described by The  Guardian  as  “a  two-hour  foray  into  Bailey’s  magpie  mind…  a  delightful  place  to  spend  time★★★★.With  Metro hailing Bill as “A Prog Rock superstar… virtually unstoppable★★★★.”  Alas, they clearly hadn’t foreseen  the arrival of a global pandemic.  In spring of this year Bill regrettably had to cut short the final European leg of  the Larks In Transit tour due to the escalating risk from Coronavirus.
