Bill Bailey has long been considered one of the UK’s most diverse and respected comedians, having snagged himself a pile of awards while releasing half a dozen concert DVDs and acting in some of Britain’s most critically-acclaimed comedies (Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Black Books). And now, the accomplished stand-up, actor and musician — he uses all of these skills in his live act, by the way — is about to impress comedy nerds in North America. He’s taking his Dandelion Mind tour to New York (Sept. 14, 15, 16, 17), Chicago (Sept. 18), Toronto (Sept. 19) and Boston (Sept. 20). And we highly suggest that if you live in or within 200 miles of those cities, you check out Bailey in action. To get the ball rolling, we’re giving away a pair of tickets — thanks to the peeps at Live Nation — for each city Bailey is visiting.
And we’re going to make it super easy for all you Laughspinners. Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us why you think you deserve these awesome, free tickets. In that email, you’re going to also have to tell us what city you live in, so we know which tickets to give you. And in the case of New York, please tell us which of the four shows you’d like to attend. First come, first serve, so be quick! For those of you not lucky enough to win, you can always lay your money down and get to a show the traditional way. Just click the above city links and buy away.
Finally, to get a better sense of Bailey’s work, let’s check out a pair of videos below. Do it!
