Billy Connolly: My Absolute Pleasure. Billy Connolly

Internationally-renowned comic Sir Billy Connolly CBE began his entertainment career in folk music, gradually expanding the chat and occasional jokes and stories in-between songs until the music was a comical sideline, and then abandoned altogether. Achieving national stardom during the 1980s, he has since achieved national acclaim for his storytelling comedy and is often dubbed "the grandfather of alternative comedy".
