Tempting Fate / Stand-Up Comedy

  • According to Bill Bailey, while he was performing at a charity gig sponsored by a Swiss banking firm, the organisers of the gig explicitly asked him not to make any jokes about Nazi Gold. Never ask a comedian not to make jokes about something; Bill later did some research into the bank in question, and devotes part of his Tinselworm DVD to making jokes about the bank's ties to the Nazi regime and encourages the audience to protest against them.
