Breakfasters: Bill Bailey’s Pursuit Of Happiness

After spending lockdown writing a book on happiness, going for long charity walks and winning Strictly Come Dancing, comedian and actor Bill Bailey returns to Australia rested, revitalised and with a new show in tow. En Route to Normal combines muses on the silliness of ragtime music and being mistaken for a juggler with Bill’s usual mix of unusual instruments and odd observations. Dropping by Breakfasters ahead of his run of shows at the Palais in October, Bill chats about his favourite venues, the pitfalls of touring with an electric oud, and why Viking folk metal is the ideal walking music.

Bill Bailey’s En Route to Normal comes to the Palais on the 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd of October.
