BILL BAILEY has announced he will be taking his hit live show Larks in Transit on an arena tour of the UK in spring 2019 heading to Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff on May 18, 2019.

Described by The Evening Standard as “an unbridled joy,” by Chortle as “A selection pack of comedy treats” and by London is Funny as “another superb show from our foremost comedy rock goblin,” Bill kicks off his tour in Brighton on May 4, 2019 and takes in Southampton, Hull, Manchester, Sheffield, Plymouth, Cardiff, Cheltenham, Birmingham, Nottingham, Liverpool, Dundee, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Derby, Leeds, and Newcastle before culminating in Bournemouth on June 11, 2019.

Larks in Transit is a compendium of travellers’ tales and the general shenanigans of twenty years as a travelling comedian. With musical virtuosity, surreal tangents and trademark intelligence, Bill Bailey tackles politics, philosophy and the pursuit of happiness. Plus, he fashions a symphony from a ring tone, tells the real story of Old MacDonald and re-imagines the Stars and Stripes. Two decades of touring larks from a comic described by The Telegraph as “the brainiest comic of his generation.”

British Comedy Award winner, Bill Bailey has enjoyed success on the live stage for many years. In 2001 he took his show Bewilderness to New York for an eight week run at the Westbeth Theatre.

The New York Times wrote of him: “Bill is an unalloyed pleasure, a treat for the funny bone, the brain and the ear” and The Telegraph pronounced him “a hobbit with a wicked sense of humour”.

In 2004 he performed his show Part Troll at more than 50 venues around the UK, culminating in an extended run at London’s Wyndhams Theatre. In 2007 he embarked on a sold-out UK arena tour with his audio-visual, comedic extravaganza, Tinselworm.

He took the show down under during the summer of 2008, touring Australia and New Zealand, before returning to London in December 2008 for a ten week run of the show at The Gielgud Theatre.

The summer of 2009 saw Bill tour the UK once again with his live show, Bill Bailey Live.

Later that same year, following his performances at London’s Royal Albert Hall and the resulting critically acclaimed BBC2 television broadcast, Bill enjoyed a very successful UK tour of his musical comedy extravaganza, Bill Bailey’s Remarkable Guide to the Orchestra.

Performing alongside some of the UK’s finest orchestras, the show provided fans with the opportunity to see Bill’s surreal comic and musical imagination at its best and was described by The Telegraph as “a glorious achievement,” The Guardian as “sublime hilarity” and Stephen Fry as “wonderfully enjoyable… like driving a Rolls-Royce off-road.”
