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"

60th Birthday Party in Devon

I just got back from a really nice gig for the nicest Guy -Phil Tucker - I will remember it until my dying day! I had just introduced Billy's big hit D.I.V.O.R.C.E. - I played the intro and launched into the 1st verse.....Our Little Dog is 6 years old when - Mr & Mrs Tucker's best friend "MAX" decided to join in! "WOOF WOOF!" he went in a deep resonant tenor bark! If only there had been a video cam - straight in to "You've Been Framed" Worldwide!!! Pure Magic!

I met Billy again in Brighton - he was the eternal Gentleman! - He autographed my Banjo, played "Cripple Creek" to the assembled fans, then he actually gave me a few hints and tips about how to actually do his act!! Billy is the real deal in my view! Legend is a much abused term buit in Billy's case it is just about right!

Ernie, Malcolm,Trev,Mark the sound engineer, Sue(Mrs Ernie!)and everyone who have made the Centenary Theatre run as a theatre should be run, should be proud of themselves!! They should be running the country!!! Many thanks to Stanley Brothers for their support!
MUCH LOVE TO THE ISLE OF MAN!!XXX

HAPPY NEW 2012!!!

Happy New Year!! I kicked off 2012 by appearing in the first TV Ad of the year - filmed on West Wittering beach West Sussex the ad is for The SUN (don't ask!) If you look closely you will see me cunningly disguised as a hairdresser in the Red Jacket (with the hair tied back looking more like Wagner than Billy!) We had 2 days filming in mid December running IN the freezing waters of the Channel! Great fun!
