HULLO!! - HOW ARE YE DOIN'?

Welcome to my Billy Connolly Tribute website - or as Sir Sean Connery says "Welcome to my webshite!"

The first time I met Billy he said "I bet you get some stick lookin' like that!" - imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

I have appeared across the U.K./Europe as Billy Connolly at festivals, comedy clubs, parties, Burn's Suppers, weddings and product launches since 1999.

You can find how to book me by Googling "Billy Connearly"

That's Entertainment

I have been chosen to play the male lead opposite Della Allen in the two-part play "That's Entertainment" by Phil Preece, Directed by Paulo Allen and produced by Nobody's Perfect Productions!!!, I am playing "Vince"

Act 1 - Mr Blue Sky

They say if you can remember the sixties you weren't there. Well ageing rocker Vince Meager was. And it's true - he can't. Or the seventies. Actually the eighties are a bit of a blur, and as for the nineties...

He's still going the rounds playing the old hits after nearly forty years, but when a young fan comes backstage to see him after the show he finds she's looking for more than an autograph. And Vince begins to discover feelings his rock and roll lifestyle has left no time for - until now.

Opens 19th and 20th February in The Old Joint Stock Theatre Birmingham then:

Saturday 20th March
Abbots Bromley Hall

Sunday 28th March
The Jermyn Street Theatre, West End, London

Tuesday 30th March

Sunday 25th April

Friday 14th May
Great Bridgeford Hall, Stafford

Friday 21st May
The Rose Theatre, Kidderminster

Thursday 27th May
The Dovehouse Theatre, Solihull

Thursday 3rd June
The Guildhall Theatre, Derby

Who do they think they are? More important what do they think WE are?? Every MP except the ones who didn't claim any expenses should be removed, keep the rest, hold an election and start again! But this time - no more Mr Nice Guy - if they step out of line they have to go and work in McDonalds for a year with no-stars!! Thievin' B'Stards!! LOL

COMIC RELIEF - WESTSIDE FM

Just got back from Westside FM in Southall - played a new song - told a few stories and - had a right laugh with some of the nicest people and saw Southall for the first time - absolutely loved it! Talk about a vibrant community - I've never seen so many people out on the streets since the '60s - and real individual shops - not the usual multi-nationals that all look the same. All that and got a big "shout out" for WWW.GUAAFRICA.COM ! just the BEST day!

COMIC RELIEF! WESTSIDE FM!

Off up to London this morning - 10 minute Radio spot as Mr Connolly on WESTSIDE FM for......COMIC RELIEF - Get In!!(yer wallets and donate some money!!!!)

RESPECT

Following a comment from someone at a gig last week can I just say that my Tribute Act is performed with Total respect for Mr Connolly. In no way am I "taking the mick" - he has my admiration for how he has handled his career etc and just because I sometimes perform without the "swearies" does not mean that I disapprove. There - that's off my chest! NOW - I see they've found a food that stops women from ever needing to have sex again - it's called WEDDING CAKE!!!!

Monday Monday...

Well here's another week - Spring is just around the cornoer - cornoer? - my typing is getting worse and I've run out of Tippex! Corner. Ah well - back to the Banjo practise!
