Bill Bailey: Thoughtifier

Bill Bailey
  • 9th Feb 2024 - 4th Mar 2024

With his trademark musical stylings and characteristic wit, Bill returns to the live stage in...

1. an intriguing device that can amplify the thoughts of a curious mind using music, channelled through a human instrument, known as Bill Bailey.

2. (colloquial) a person resembling Bill Bailey.

The show's blurb says: "At a point in our evolution when it seems as if we're sleepwalking into a world where humans might be redundant, and much of what we do can be done better and more efficiently by machines, what better time to celebrate our own flawed humanity. And who better a guide to lead us than Bill... To take us on a jaunt through the error-strewn, distracted, crumb-festooned, sometimes magnificent history of human thought and how it might help us survive in this brave new world. A magical, musical mystery tour of the human mind, along with some other pressing matters about whales, biophilia, unrequited love and other thoughts. Amplified With Music. Welcome to Thoughtifier!"
