Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy to make stand-up debut
Will Oldham - aka Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy - is set to perform as a stand- up comedian at Chicago comedy club Weeds.

The cult artists will perform as part of a series of shows sponsored and curated by the Drag City record label and is one of several performers who will take to the stage for short stand-up stints, along with local comedian Kumail Nanjiani. The evening will include a musical performance from labelmate Azita.

According to Drag City spokesperson Rian Murphy “he has a very expansive vision and there’s no telling what he might consider funny”.

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy will take to the stage at Weeds on December 19 and will return to music to embark on a short UK tour on January 23, including two sold out dates at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall.

The dates are:

Nottingham Rock City (January 23)
Manchester Bridgewater Hall (24)
Bristol Colston Hall (25)
London Queen Elizabeth Hall (26/27)
