    For those of you that don't know, he's a British comedian, and a damn good one at that. In fact, he's my favourite comedian ever.

    He's starred in both tv and film roles (e.g. Black Books and Hot Fuzz), presented Have I Got News For You, been a regular team captain on Never Mind The Buzzcocks, had his own series Is It Bill Bailey?.

    And he's had a number of stand-up tours:
    - Cosmic Jam
    - Bewilderness
    - Part Troll
    - Tinselworm (coming in November 2007).

    So, there's gotta be some fans here (if you haven't heard of him, run a YouTube search), and I want to know, what's your favourite Bill Bailey part? Manny in Black Books? Bilbo Bagshot in Spaced? Or one of his stand-up tours?

    My favourite tour would probably be Part Troll - only marginally, as all his tours are awesome. However, I love his role of Manny the most.

    Oh, and I'm lucky enough to be seeing him on his Tinselworm tour =D.

    Part troll had me on the floor in stitches. The love ballard he does is hilourous and The german hoakey coakey...genious.

    I think Manny's a brill character. Love it when it turns out he's a piano genuis.

    I'm seeing him at B'ham for Tinselworm. smiley0.gif

    My bro has Cosmic Jam and Part Troll and they were both hilarious, especially the joke about 2 guys on drugs watching hundreds of people come out a 2-man tent.

    I am death!
    A winged beast!
    I am born on black velvet wings of night!
    I'm hungry for a feast!
    I am the nemesis of the vole!
    My heart is black as coal!
    You can kill me with a trowel!
    I am an owl...

    I love his love ballad from Part Troll... I won't quote the entirety because it's huge, but I could if I wanted =P.

    The duck lies shredded in a pancake,
    Soaking in the hoisin of your lies.

    I'd never heard about it before this thread, it's not a DVD that's in any of my local stores.

    HMV had Cosmic Jam but that's it, not in WHSmith, and I haven't bothered to go on play.com.

    Cosmic Jam was the first one, followed by Bewilderness, followed by Part Troll.

    Many regard Bewilderness to be the best, but I think they're all great in their own ways.

    In reply to trickstar, #15:

    Yeah, he does re-use some, it's one of the criticisms he's received, but they're generally really good anyway so I don't see the problem. There's a lot of original material in there as well.

    I liked knowing the joke he was about to say, it gave me that "I know exactly what he's going to say and it's still going to be hilarious" moment.
