Episode menu

Series 1, Episode 1

In British comedy there is a line in the sand - and that line is Billy Connolly. Before he found fame on an international level, British comedy was an end of the pier kind of affair. But through sheer talent and force of personality Connolly ploughed a different, and deeply personal yet universal, approach to comedy - and in doing so he changed the face of British comedy forever.
