Bill Bailey - Qualmpeddler Tour Wellington




Don’t miss your chance to see UK Comedian Bill Bailey LIVE! Returning to New Zealand after his sold out tour in 2010.







Bill Bailey had doubts about the modern world, but these have now grown into qualms. He will be channeling these feelings of unease and apprehension, with the help of religious dubstep, his folk bouzouki, horntallica, and perhaps a dub version of Downton Abbey.







He looks at the consequences of lies, the unending search for the Higgs boson and the hiding skills of dentists. Bill tries to confront his cluster-qualm of living in a time of spectacular ignorance, nuclear worry and rare planetary alignment that may be part of the Mayan end of days prophecy. Come savour this broth of anxiety with Bill Bailey - Qualmpeddler.
