Interview: Bill Bailey

The gap between how we imagine our lives to be and how they really are is the subject of Bill Bailey's latest show Limboland, which he brings to the Hippodrome for four nights this month.

Interview: Paul Sinha

Acclaimed stand-up Paul Sinha brought his show Postcards from the Z List to last year's Edinburgh Fringe after a four-year break from the festival. "Looking back, life as a travelling single gaysian delivering lefty, liberal jokes was quite straightforward. Now he has to juggle the responsibilities of being an uncle, being in an actual relationship for the first time in 20 years, and being that bloke, from that quiz, in that poorly-fitting white suit. It's not easy." Paul's bringing Postcards... to the Tobacco Factory Theatres later this month.
