Tall Tales and Wee Stories by Billy Connolly
Billy Connolly needs little introduction. Last year, following 50 years of live stand-up, the Scottish comedian announced his retirement from performance.
Throughout his extraordinary career his routines always felt spontaneous, simply because he never wrote scripts. Billy always created his comedy on stage, in the presence of a live audience. Depending on its reception, a story could then be adapted, embellished or simply discarded.
What could start one night, on tour, as a short anecdote could become a 20 minute segment by the next evening.
Over the years, his insights into the human condition have shocked many, while his unique talent has always offered him the opportunity to say absolutely anything about sex, politics or religion!
Tall Tales and Wee Stories is a collection of Billy’s best storytelling, spanning the entirety of his career. For the first time he includes his most famous routines; The Last Supper, Jojoba Shampoo, Incontinence Pants and Shouting at the Wildebeest. This is a must-read for Billy Connolly fans!
