Bill Bailey is going trying out as a contestant to be the Eurovision song contest in 2008! If you’re not familiar with Bill Bailey, you can get a taste of his sense of humour from his simply wonderful Cockney Medley. He is one of the funniest comedians in the country, and a he’s good musician too. What could be better for Eurovision than an extra helping of surrealism on top of the, already rather bizarre, event? Also, the contest is usually full of pretty people sashaying gymnastically around the stage, so Bill would make a very nice change in tone!
As it says on his website, he’s only putting himself forward, so this doesn’t mean he’ll get in, but I really hope he does! Why is this happening? It’s all down to the power of the internet. Lovely.
