Update from Bill – May 2009

Posted by Bill on May 18th, 2009

Well firstly many thanks for all your kind words about the Remarkable Guide to the Orchestra, which was shown recently on BBC2. The plan is hopefully to put together a few dates in the Autumn and tour the show in the UK. The full-length version of the show will be released on DVD in November, all being well.

Looking forward to the Summer tour and revisiting some old haunts . I made my BBC2 series ‘Is it Bill Bailey?’ in Glasgow and during my time there got to know the city a bit better, and I loved it. Great curries..and friendly natives… And first time for me in Plymouth I think, bigging up the South Coast Massive..or something. So many places, so many tiny individual pots of  Milk-Style Dairy Type Liquid…

Just going through my expenses, £4273.99 for Guinea Pig Anti-Flu BioDome, £723.48 for gold-plated Locust  Grooming-Tongs, £7,348,003.19 for second Chameleon Home allowance in the Yemen..

I think you’ll find that’s all in order.

See you soon.
