Went to see Bill Bailey. With students. This is the essential way to see Bill Bailey live. In fact I think if don't have a student laying around at home, you've got no business getting tickets. I'm not saying you can't go...I'm just saying take an undergraduate.
He had a sequence involving buying a pot plant from Homebase. Later on he appeared on the screen with a large pot plant. Tom (3rd year physics) was able to confirm that he was indeed carrying one of Homebase's range. Not only this but it was from the current stock and thus available to purchase for anyone who wished to carry around said plant in a Bill Bailey fashion.
You wouldn't get that from your friend who works in an office would you?
Tom was also able to explain the joke involving a particle accelerator.
But it was pot plant bit that was really important.
