** A special mention for the note perfect chorus of Gary Numan's "Cars" played on a giant rack of rubber squeeze horns. And singing the whole thing in French.

* CreatorBacklash: [[InUniverse During his stand-up]], Bill says that he quit ''Series/NeverMindTheBuzzcocks'' to preserve his dignity, after finding himself (not for the first time) humming "Toxic" by Creator/BritneySpears to "some gormless indie halfwit".


Added DiffLines:

* OneOfUs: He is a massive ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fan, even going so far as to name his son [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Dax]]. Which was actually named after a childhood friend but you try telling the internet that.
** He is also known to wear anime paraphernalia, appearing in ''Anime/DragonBall'' and ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' t-shirts in separate episodes of ''Series/{{QI}}''.
** He also seems to be a big fan of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', and apparently just missed out on landing a part (according to ''Part Troll''). [[HilariousInHindsight Which becomes way funnier]] considering his [[https://www.google.com/search?q=bill+bailey+theoden&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAWoVChMI3f_d4YyLyAIVxQmSCh2vRARL&biw=1708&bih=793&dpr=0.8 disturbing resemblance to Bernard Hill as King Theoden]].

** And his own TheyChangedItNowItSucks moment on ''Series/{{Room101}}'' for the 'new' reworked Bill theme for being a generic 'pop' tune in 4/4 time when the original was in 7/8 time.

** Bill's frustration at the BBC for not playing the entirety of the snooker theme in Cosmic Jam "PLAY THE REST OF THE TRACK! They never play it!" is even more understandable with the entire tune being freely available on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GkgoeKHsXI the web]] - it's a complete instrumental track and it's really very good. Although it never turns into ''Smells Like Teen Spirit''.

** He also once made the observation that the original theme music to ''TheBill'' was great because it was "subversive"... in that it was a reefer tune disguised as the theme music to a cop show.
