Storyline

In British comedy there is a line in the sand and that line is Billy Connolly. Before he found fame on an international level, British comedy was an end-of-the-pier kind of affair - but through sheer talent and force of personality, Connolly ploughed a different and deeply personal yet universal approach to comedy and in doing so he changed the face of British comedy forever. He has been called the Beatles and Jesus of comedy by his peers and an immature 'manure mouth' by the leader of the Scottish Zion Baptist Church. So say what you like about him but you can't deny everyone wants to know him. And that is what Made In Scotland is about - it is Billy as you have never seen him before - intimate, deeply personal and very funny. Weaved around personal accounts and interviews from famous faces, Billy's life is revealed in all its glory - a shaggy dog story approach to his work - and one that has turned him from Billy Connolly the welder into Billy Connolly - The Big Yin.

Refreshing and original of the near lost art
6 January 2019 | by fran-6591northstarSee all my reviews

What more could be said where now staged clowns try fitting in as many swear words, derogatory slang, racist or otherwise meet only the likes of which attending, left me wondering how the ball has dropped, from where once those of Billy's caliber of which now are very few, simply told us stories of life we witnessed every day...in their comical way. Brilliant.
