Summary: People say laughter is a social activity. That is not the case with Bill Bailey. I wached this on my own and was rolling around in the foetal position in a puddle of my own pee all the way through this. Bill Bailey is a comedy genius and Dandilion Mind has to be up there with the best in stand-up DVDs. That said, you have to have the right sense of humour to find it funny. If you like Black books then you have to see this.
Summary: I love stand-up, I watch a lot of it. I've seen all of Bill Bailey's previous DVDs and this is definitely my favourite. The usual BB madness, surreal asides and music, this had me in stitches. Less hit and miss than some of his previous DVDs and less Kraftwerk which I think is a plus point!
Summary: One thing that makes you appreciate stand-up comedy is getting on stage yourself and giving it a go. Many think 'I could do better than that', but until they get up onto a stage, it's all hot air. Reading some of the reviews of this you might get the impression that Bill Bailey has lost his way and that he's not as funny as he used to be. This is far from the case as he has an exceedingly rare gift of making almost everything funny.
Conclusion: Ignore any 'recycled jokes' reviews (seriously, are you sure we were watching the same show!?!? This is ALL new material!!) this is one of Bill's best....Part Troll has always been my favourite to date (ooh, though Cosmic Jam is a very close second!) but this eclipses it in many ways. I'd thought he'd lost it a bit on Tinselworm but this is absolutely hilarious!!
Conclusion: Me & my mates were really disappointed with this release. Bill has been using the same jokes for years now & his last few DVDs have been the same apart from a change of venue. This is no way full hd either, it looks very grainy in parts.
