Billy's most passionate and loving work!
12 January 2006 | by Jimbo_of_the_ShireSee all my reviews

Everybody should now know who Billy Connolly is - with his 'colourful' language and his hilarious, and surprisingly accurate take on the strange, funny and ridiculous events that happen through our lives, that we tend not to notice. He has made a name for himself as the funniest comedian to come out of Scotland.

Billy Connolly's World Tour of Scotland, the first of his four successful World Tour series, shows Scotland through the eyes of a man who was born and raised in Scotland, and as well as covering all different parts of Scotland (from Glasgow and Edinburgh, to the Shetlands, to the Borders), we get to hear about the fond memories of his childhood. He shows us the house he was born in, where he worked as a welder, to where he lost his virginity! He also talks about some of Scotlands most famous historical events, from the battle of Culloden, to the Tay Bridge disaster, Billy covers the length and breadth of his home country. As far as the comedy goes, Billy basically has never been funnier. This was the stage where he was at his very best (if you haven't seen his Live 1994 show, I suggest you do asap!) Overall, a loving and passionate take on this beautiful country. A must-see!!!
