Publisher's Summary

One of the great Billy Connolly's finest performances and one very fondly remembered by thousands of fans. It was one of the tv shows that really made him into a superstar- and with good reason. From Scottish parties and folk singers to visits from the Priest to those woderful ads for the Big Slipper and do it yourself haircuts, and of course incontinence knickers! Truly one of the funniest shows ever recorded and rightly considered a classic.

Best 49 minutes ever!

I just spent one of the best 49 minutes of my life listening to this. My only regret is that I couldn’t see what the hell he was doing. Now I have to find a video. God, please let there be a video. You’re a treasure, Billy Connolly. ❤️@JessieOz9

my hero

If you could sum up An Audience with Billy Connolly in three words, what would they be?

wonderfully funny man

Any additional comments?

billy connolly is my hero and always will be. he makes me laugh like no other. sure there are other comedians out there who also make me roar with laughter but billy was the first. hes the guy that all todays comedians look up too and aspire to be like.
this is billy in the 80s. slowing ebbing away from the jokes and funny songs of the 70s and more into observational comedy which he would stick with to this day. an absolute genius

I remember seeing this show on TV in the 1980's and it's still just as funny.

Will always be funny

I remember watching this when I was a teen and years later I'm still laughing, Billy knows how to hold a crowd in the palm of his hand.
The biggest problem was where I chose to listen to it. If you see a bearded man wearing headphones and laughing near to tears to himself in Sainsbury's, please, leave me be. Probably the best shop I've had in ages

Hilarious

This was always one of my favourite shows he did and it's still hilarious even if for some the references to names may not be recognisably for some younger listeners.
The visual formats are better as you play spot a star and see the motions Billy makes but the laughs you get from this will cheer you up no end.

the audience laughter overwhelmed the comedy .

could nt hear the jokes because audience laughter was too loud and overwhelmed the audio.

Love Billy but .....

I love Billy but this one jumped over parts and was hard to follow - not sure if there was a problem with the recording or not
