Entertainer Bill Bailey to return in May

Top comedian and musician Bill Bailey is paying a return visit to Shetland in May with his new live show “Qualmpeddler”.

Tickets went on sale this morning for Bailey’s appearance at Clickimin on Thursday 17th May, almost exactly two years after he performed a sell-out show at the leisure centre.

The new show, described as a “broth of anxiety”, is based around doubts Bailey had about the modern world which have “grown into Qualms”. It promises to take in religious dubstep, a re-appraisal of some of the world’s greatest works of art and possibly even a dub version of Downton Abbey.

As well as many years’ experience as a stand-up performer, Bailey is a familiar face on UK television screens. He was a team captain on long-running music and comedy panel show Never Mind The Buzzcocks, while his acting portfolio includes three series of the hit black comedy Black Books, acclaimed comedy Spaced, comedy drama serial Jonathan Creek and edgy teen drama Skins.

• Tickets, priced £17.50, are available through Shetland Box Office’s website.
