Billy Connolly. You either love him or hate him. There is not a lot of middle ground. I am a bit of a Billy fan, and do not mind the odd bit of crude humour with a few fart jokes thrown in for good measure. There is not really a lot more that I can say that you don't know already, and if you don't know then it is more than likely you wouldn't like this DVD anyway! I will just say that a Billy Connolly performance is not a series of skits, it is just a big long rambling story that may, or may not, end up back at the original point. But, it certainly is funny.
This disc actually features two whole performances, coming in at over 3 hours of Billy humour! Can you handle it? I dare you to watch it all in one sitting. You would certainly come out the other end of it saying a certain F word with far more vigour and frequency. The first performance on the disc is Live at the Odeon Hammersmith in London, recorded in 1991. The second is entitled Live 1994, and is recorded in (surprise!) 1994.
I enjoyed the 1991 performance more than the Live 1994 performance, often laughing uproariously. Of particular note are the stories about a dog's life, bad water in Spain, something involving a scuba suit and a mining lamp, and the female rights movement, amongst many other topics. If you are a fan of Billy Connolly then don't hesitate, grab this DVD right now! Recommended.
