I Love Bill Bailey

Filed under: Feminism,Random — by Lucy @ 2:21 pm

My boyfriend and I spent last night at this event, a benefit for the Greater London Domestic Violence Project. The best bit of a  fabulous line-up was Bill Bailey, who was already pretty amazing in my view but has just been elevated to god status. He’s hilarious, he plays any musical instrument you can throw at him AND he supports an anti- domestic violence charity. What’s not to like? (Note to Americans etc who may not have heard of him: he’s a comedian/ musician. Check out his website).

I hadn’t heard of the GLDVP before last night, but they do some really important work. As 1 in 4 women experience some form of domestic violence, and one incidence is reported to the police every minute,  organisations like this are vital.

Sorry for all these small, boring posts – I’ll write something more substantial when inspiration strikes!



  1. I love Bill Bailey too – so gutted they are not making any more Black Books. I saw his Part Troll tour and it was hilarious. Also say Dylan Moran back in June and he was very disappointing – uninspired and too drunk.

  2. I really like Bill Bailey too and thought he found a great role on Black Books.

    He was also good on “Never Mind the Buzzcocks”.

  3. Hey thanks! I’m a long time reader of your blog – glad you enjoyed the show – we were pretty chuffed that Bill agreed tp support us.

  4. Laura – I agree about Dylan Moran, have always found him smug and not very funny.

    Davina – thanks! It’s nice to know I have long-time readers. Well done for the show – we had a great time. Hope it raised lots of money…

  5. “Won’t you come home Bill Bailey…won’t you come home…”

  6. That may be where he got his name – I know it’s a pseudonym.
