Although I was unwell today, Em and I had tickets to see Bill Bailey at the State Theatre that I’d bought ages ago. I was glad that by the evening I was feeling up to going! We ate dinner at Wagamama, had a good chat and laughed ourselves silly. If you ever have the chance to catch Bailey live, don’t pass it up. He’s manic, musical, highly intelligent and really, really funny.
My favourite bit was his critique of Australian news theme songs. On the channel 9 news theme: “That theme song is only appropriate if Godzilla is attacking the studio!” Think about it next time you hear it – he’s right. He also did an interpretive dance to the ABC news theme and almost broke a leg tripping over his keyboards and theremin in the process.
