Series 1, Episode 5 - I Know You

Class, politics and identity have always been a great source of comedy material for Billy Connolly...

Further details

Billy Connolly hilariously deconstructs his views of the rampant tartanry of Harry Lauder, the untrustworthiness of politicians and the ridiculousness of social climbers. He also sheds light on his own place in the world with characteristic honesty and humour, tackling the class system with frankness and insight. As he says in one archive clip: "I hate the class system... It clogs everything up and it is funny and it is interesting."

Alongside great clips from documentaries, the episode features some of Billy's best-loved routines such as 'I know you - I know your face' - the classic tale of a Christmas dinner that gets spectacularly weird.
