“One zinging musical-comedy set piece after another.” The Guardian
“His genius is to bring arena-sized crowds along… by the force of his quirky enthusiasm and by neither pandering nor ever pretending to be anyone other than his idiosyncratic, off-the-beaten-path self.” The Guardian

Comedian and talented musician, Bill Bailey, has just announced his latest arena tour, Thoughtifier, set to entertain the crowds of the North Scotland when he comes to Aberdeen’s P&J Live on Thursday 15th February 2024.
At a point in our evolution when it seems as if we’re sleepwalking into a world where humans might be redundant, and much of what we do can be done better and more efficiently by machines, what better time to celebrate our own flawed humanity.
And who better a guide to lead us than Bill… To take us on a jaunt through the error-strewn, distracted, crumb-festooned, sometimes magnificent history of human thought and how it might help us survive in this brave new world.
A magical, musical mystery tour of the human mind, along with some other pressing matters about whales, biophilia, unrequited love and other thoughts. Amplified With Music. Welcome to Thoughtifier!
Louise Stewart, Head of Exhibitions, Entertainment & Marketing at P&J Live, said: “With his unique musical talents and quirky comedy, Bill is a much-loved comedian on the circuit. For those that missed out on his last tour, we’d highly recommend – it promises fantastic entertainment from start to finish.”
