Stand up comedian Bill Bailey’s first solo stand up comedy show was Cosmic Jam. The stand up comedy performed at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London and was broadcasted in 1997 on Channel 4 as a one-hour special called Bill Bailey Live.
Bill Bailey: Cosmic Jam stand up comedy show marked the first time that Bailey had been able to tie together his music and post-modern gags with the whimsical rambling style he is now known for. This all comes after a disappointment with a show he created one year earlier, which had no success. But the stand up comedian persevered and the stand up comedy show was very well-received.
Even if Channel 4 broadcasted the comedy show under the name of Bill Bailey Live, when it was released on DVD in 2005, the uncut version of the stand up comedy show received back his original name Bill Bailey: Cosmic Jam.
