Qualmpeddler has all the trademark Bailey elements, so get ready for more musical mash-ups, twisted logic, political ranting, visuals and animation – and a clear-eyed yet surreal view of the modern world. This time Bailey is inspired by a trip to China and explorations of language and strangers.

Bailey, probably best known to Australian audiences for his stand up shows and work on television in shows such as QI and Black Books, will visit Perth, Adelaide, Canberra,  Newcastle, Sydney, and Melbourne with a tour that kicks off on August 26 and concludes in Melbourne on 21 September.
Tickets will be on sale from 9am Friday 8 June. For more information including tickets, visit
