As good as ever
15 May 2017 | by thingadontaSee all my reviews

One of the best I've seen of Billy Connolly.

Take this: I've got Parkinson's disease, and I wish he had of f**ken kept it to himself!. Also called Shaking Palsy, and I'm f**ken glad he showed up!. And don't put your shaking hands in your pocket to hide it, whilst admiring a nude painting at an art gallery.

He talks about signing autographs on money and being mistaken for a drug dealer by the Scottish police, and a long story about a movie armorer lost in Scotland mistaking a sunbathing cat for one he had run over.

You just have to be there (or listen to this live recording). The beauty is, despite obvious stiffness from Parkinson's, he hasn't lost anything: the mind is as sharp as ever.
