How did we get here? How do we find our way through this? And exactly who are we again?

In Bill’s new show, EN ROUTE TO NORMAL, Bill ponders these and other questions that this moment in history has thrown up and tries to see a way through the strange unreality of our new world.

With Bill naming the show before we’d even heard of Covid-19, EN ROUTE TO NORMAL has become not just a funny, heart-warming mix of stories, music and history, but a personal mission to find our way through these strange times!  

Last in Australia in 2018, the British Comedy Award winner is a frequent visitor to our shores, with Aussies flocking to theatres to see the master in action. Irreverent and immensely talented, EN ROUTE TO NORMAL will be the seventh show that Bill has brought down under, delivered with the energy the multi-faceted entertainer is known for.

“Still one of the funniest and most brilliantly original comedians around.”
 – The Telegraph
