Bill Bailey is one of my favourite comedians – his stand-ups, his role in Black Books, his piano endeavours never fail to make me laugh. This video is a little more hard hitting, but the message is important. We all enjoy a drink but as the Wine in Moderation chap demonstrated at the European Wine Bloggers Conference, everything in moderation…


It’s all too easy to laugh off the effects of alcohol and forget that drink can put young people in vulnerable situations.
Recognising that alcohol is a serious issue and talking about the good and the bad sides can help young people stay safe, confident and responsible as they grow as teenagers.
Comedy legend Bill Bailey discusses his involvement with the Alcohol. It’s no Joke campaign and shares his experiences of booze as a teenager. Bill talks about related dangers such as drugs, unprotected sex or becoming a victim of anti social behaviour.

The aim of this film is to show that alcohol can make young people vulnerable. Although parents worry about unprotected sex, drugs and crime, drinking alcohol is often not top of the list. Alcohol can be the thing which leaves young people vulnerable and in situations they might not know how to deal with.

This film is the one of a series featuring other comedians including Jo Brand, Russell Kane and Josie Long and is part of the build-up to a big campaign launch in mid-January.
In addition there is a ‘behind the scenes’ making off video:
