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"

First Advert of 2012

I've just spent the weekend on the beach at West Wittering, Sussex, running(!) along the sand and in the sea!!! All for a new advert for The SUN (sometimes fate just laughs at my pet hates!!) I played a very camp hairdresser and it will be shown as the first ad of 2012, incorporating the Olympics with every face of the Great British Nation! The cast, crew and extras were brilliant - so friendly - and what they say about film location catering is absolutely 100% true - Delicious!! In spite of the exercise I've gained a pound or two!!
