For fans of Billy Connolly doing stand up, this is a cracking return to form.
27 January 2012 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

There was a time when I was worried that Billy Connolly had passed his prime and nobody had told him. Silly me, I needn't have worried. His 1994 live show was one of the funniest things I'd seen from him but for a few years after that there seemed to be nothing but lesser material padded out with highlights of his career so far (not including his fantastic touring TV shows). His 2002, however, sees him back on hilariously profane top form.

All of the favourite topics are covered here - genitalia, farting, random anecdotes that seem to spring to mind - and everything is as funny as ever, even if some of the stuff is repeated from earlier works. With a career as long and healthy as Mr. Connolly has had, it's only inevitable that sometimes gags are slightly recycled.

The main gig shown is about 45 minutes and then the rest of the DVD is full of highlights from other gigs. Thankfully, it's all very good and very funny from the beginning to end credits that feature a hilarious little story featuring Jimmy Tarbuck.

Mr. Connolly may be a lot older than he once was but he's still as angry and hilarious as ever.
