Scottish

Arise, Sir Billy Connolly

Posted on Updated on

Billy Connolly was honoured with a knighthood this week. For Scots, Billy is universally adored. OTL grew up listening to Billy Connolly. OTL remembers parents secretly laughing (despite their official disapproval of his swearing).

When anyone asks OTL about comedy heroes, Billy is always top of the list. The thing OTL loves the most about Billy is his sense of fun. As much as dark comedy, political comedy and satire are important, Comedy should be fun and Billy does fun in abundance. The twinkle in his eye, his cheeky delivery and the enthusiasm he uses to bring his stories to life are without equal. OTL aspires to bring a fraction of the joy and happiness, Billy has brought to the world.

Below are some of Billy’s greatest words of wisdom.
