Summary

One of the great Billy Connolly's finest performances and one very fondly remembered by thousands of fans. It was one of the tv shows that really made him into a superstar- and with good reason. From Scottish parties and folk singers to visits from the Priest to those woderful ads for the Big Slipper and do it yourself haircuts, and of course incontinence knickers! Truly one of the funniest shows ever recorded and rightly considered a classic.

Billy was fantastic during this time, in later life everything is shouting and anger, he was extremely funny as this recording shows.

FANTASTIC BRILLIANT FUNNY BILLY CONNOLLY

Saw this Saturday night live show when it came out in the 80’s and had us all in tears of laughter. Saw Billy live in the 90’s at the London Hammersmith and he split our sides. The audience got high like nothing I had ever seen and Billy received a well deserved standing ovation. So pleased to get this live show on audible so we can laugh out loud to our graves.
This is real life when adults could laugh at their lives no matter where we came from. Life is far too serious now, it is pathetic.

Brilliant!

I remember seeing this show on TV in the 1980's and it's still just as funny.
