Billy Connolly Had Me Rolling Around The Floor Laughing ...
... Unfortunately he hasn't managed to do this to me since the early 1980s . As a couple of people have commentated on another page his series where he tours England , Ireland and Wales was rather disappointing but that previous show was actually better than this one . One theory put forward is that Connolly has been too successful in a financial sense and I agree . You really do get the impression that his motivation for making the show is solely so he can tour New Zealand on a motor bike . As you might expect the clips concentrate more on Connolly driving about on a motor bike giving us a potted history of the locations than in his previous tour shows and judging by his now his now rather poor performance as a stand up comic this might not actually be a bad thing since his present routine is nowhere funny as they were 25 years ago . Don't believe me ? Well put on his comedy gig LP entitled The Crucifixation and prepare to bust a few ribs laughing . There's few laughs to be found in this series and unless the next show is called BILLY CONNOLLY'S WORLD TOUR OF SUNNI TERRORIST AREAS it'd be a good idea to drop the series
