Billy Connolly: Made in Scotland review

Connolly recounts his thrilling escape from the shipyards in a vivid portrait of 1960s Glasgow.

Jack Seale, The Guardian, 28th December 2018

Did the Big Yin's conversational style change the face of British comedy for ever, as this two-part special argues? Either way, the Glaswegian remains one of the funniest men alive and it's good to see him in such fine form as he goes home to tell the story of his journey from welder to internationally feted comedian. Sentimental but never schlocky, his reflections on childhood, the shipyards of the Clyde and the drinking culture of Glasgow form a mesmerising portrait of both man and city.
