The Museum of Curiosity is BBC Radio 4's monumental comedy edifice, and the only one with gargoyles in the foyer.

No one knows what Bill Bailey's thinking half the time. He plays the dimwit in classic shows like Black Books, but his poetic turns of phrase always betray the mind of a poetic madman - although he might very well convince you that he's a dimwit after all. Stand-up star, musician and general raving genius, Bill Bailey will always hold your attention.
