Sir Billy Connolly's last international stand-up tour show is to be screened in cinemas on 10th October 2019.

Organisers explain: "Hailed as the UK's most influential comedian of all time, the legendary Billy Connolly will come to cinemas nationwide on Thursday 10th October as he presents a show from the Australian leg of his last ever stand-up tour, recorded in 2015.

"Screening as a special one-night-only event, The Sex Life Of Bandages will also see Connolly muse upon his career, life and legacy in a deeply personal and never-before-seen interview filmed exclusively for cinema audiences."

They add: "It is a riotous journey filled with outrageous tales and blistering observations of everyday absurdities. The Sex Life Of Bandages is a big screen tribute to an iconic funny-man whose sharp wit and anarchic storytelling is still as hilarious as ever."

Billy Connolly comments: "Considering I tend to die in all my Hollywood movies, I'm delighted to appear in cinemas and be alive and well at the end!"

Prior to retiring in 2016 following his diagnosis with Parkinson's Disease, Connolly toured worldwide continuously for 50 years, performing to a combined audience of over 10 million people.

This news follows on from last week's announcement that Connolly will be publishing a book on 17th October called Tall Tales And Wee Stories. It "brings together for the first time the very best, outrageously funny story-telling from the nation's favourite comedian".
