Bill and I were discussing comics in the comments section of the preceeding post. As I mentioned, I do enjoy what might be considered “Adult” humor, as long as it doesn’t go too far overboard. One of my favorites is Billy Connolly. His material can be a bit blue at times, but it’s not what I consider vulgar or in bad taste.

Youtube has a lot of Billy Connolly clips. Here’s a series of 4 clips from a show in NY several years ago. Enjoy!

    I never knew the guy was a comic until recently. My first brush with him was in a movie about a famous, but washed-up 70’s rock band in England that reunited for a tour and Billy was the tour manager.

    It was…a comedy!

    Hi, Bill:

    Have you seen the movie, “Mrs Brown?” Dame Judi Dench plays Queen Victoria and Billy is a majestic John Brown.

    I don’t think Billy was at his best in those New York clips, but the audience loved him.

    Have you heard any of his early, ‘serious’ songs?

  3. Bill says:

    I have seen Mrs. Brown and I really thought it was quite good.

    Not familiar with his music.

    Still Crazy is the movie about the band. One of my faves. As is Mrs. Brown. He was terrific in it.

    As for Billy’s music, it’s really rather good, but you have to be in the mood and ready for it.

    Yes, I am a BC fan. Proud of it, too.
