aka Hand Picked by Billy Connolly
16 May 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Highlights from Billy Connolly's concerts at London's Cambridge Theater, though the footage of Connolly appears seamless in content.

Director David Mallet often over-edits the different camera angles of Connolly, and the audience coverage is minimal - it also includes pre-performance foyer footage and that of a card trickster.

Connolly mixes anecdotes with extended jokes, and while his skill as an impersonator of attitude and body language is funny, his material is lowbrow eg the Glasgow Sewerage Worker, Lovely Raquel the blow-up sex toy. He also plays the guitar and yell-sings Oh! Andrew, a ditty about a "welly boot". The best of the night is his description of a drunken party, where he uses accumulation of character to amusing effect.
