Billy Connolly has enjoyed a longstanding career as one of the world’s best-loved comedians. His live shows have been enthralling audiences around the world for over three decades.
He has toured relentlessly, beloved by audiences in the British Isles, Australia, and New Zealand — all locations where he made a series of successful “world tour” documentaries for the BBC. His boisterous, animated physical style and off-the-cuff intensity also caught on with American audiences and he now tours the United States more regularly, becoming a familiar sight on late night talk shows.
As an actor, Connolly has revealed a dramatic side with his BAFTA-nominated performance as a confidante of Queen Victoria in “Mrs. Brown” (1997), and also had memorable character roles in such diverse fare as “The Last Samurai” (2003), “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” (2004) and “The X-Files: I Want to Believe” (2008).
His charisma and inventiveness have made him a legend in Australia and his shows sell out at maximum speed.
It’s six years since Billy last performed here — so his 2011 The Man tour, which kicks off in Melbourne in January is a rare opportunity, not to be missed!
