Fans of comedian Bill Bailey who were disappointed to miss out on tickets for his 'Limboland' show at the Olympia Theatre have another chance to bag a ticket.

Bailey has added a third date to his Olympia run on Saturday October 3 and tickets go on sale this Friday April 17 at 9am.

"I always have a great time in Dublin and had to bring my new Limboland show to the Olympia Theatre," says Bill.

"It's one of the best comedy rooms in the world and seems to draw some of the best hecklers and nutters to it. See you in October."

The Saturday date follows Bill's appearances on Thursday October 1 and Friday October 2.

His Irish run follows a 30 date Australian tour and will be first time Irish fans will see him live on stage in over three years since his multiple sold out dates at the O2.

The subject of the show is "the gap between how we imagine our lives to be and how they really are".

From his countless global travels, he recounts the hilarious saga of a disastrous family trip to Norway to see the Northern Lights. He rails against a world that doesn’t match up to our expectations and contemplates the true nature of happiness. And no Bill Bailey show would be complete without music, so we have Bill’s version of the protest song, a heart-rending country and western ballad played on a Bible, and a fabulously downbeat version of Happy Birthday."

Tickets cost from €30 including booking fee via Ticketmaster.
