I’m afraid, and I’m sure you’ll be relieved, that this will be a brief review. me and Billy Connolly have a troubled past, I’ve always found him too shouty and sweary to be funny and know too much about his past thanks to his many trips to Parkinson.
But now sadly Parkinson is off the TV and I thought it time to give Billy another chance with his latest stand-up DVD. He has changed a bit, but not for the better.
Rather than the angry man he used to be Connolly came off as slightly whiny and had nothing new or ground-breaking to say in his routine. It was pretty standard stand-up that frankly got a little boring. And it’s not just me who thinks so.
After sense checking with a few other review it seems even Connolly fans have found this latest DVD a little lacklustre and not up to his usual standard.
