Worth watching for the comments by his wife, Pamela Stephenson, Eddie Izzard and especially Sir Bob Geldoff's comments on Billy's "musical" endeavours. A number of the clips shown are taken from his recent world tour of England, Ireland and Wales which is a fabulous tour (including great lines such as "There's no such thing as bad weather, just wrong clothing. Get yourself a sexy raincoat and live a little.") but I would have included more clips from his early work. However with the factors of it's time of broadcast limiting the language that could be used and also the fact that the DVD of his tour is now out their decision is very understandable.
If you watched this, or are looking for it to watch, you will enjoy this because you already enjoy Billy Connolly's style. If you haven't seen it then I suggest looking for some of Billy's other stuff and once you've p***ed yourself laughing to that, then look for this. Or more of his stuff. Or both.
Billy's acceptance speech is brilliant.
