Hailed as the UK’s most influential comedian of all time, legendary Scot Billy Connolly is coming to cinemas with this brilliant show from his final stand-up tour. Recorded in 2015 during the Australian leg, this whipsmart routine is a riotous journey filled with outrageous tales and blistering observations of everyday absurdities. This one-night-only event also includes a cinema-exclusive interview with Connolly, who muses upon his career, life and legacy.
Before retiring in 2016 following his diagnosis with Parkinson’s Disease, Connolly toured continuously for 50 years, performing to a combined audience of over ten million people. The Sex Life Of Bandages is a big-screen tribute to an iconic funny-man whose sharp wit and anarchic storytelling remains as hilarious as ever.
★★★★ ‘Can he still hold an audience in his thrall - warm us, cheer us, tickle us? Abso - Billy - lutely!' - The Telegraph
★★★★ 'Beautifully funny' - The Guardian
★★★★ 'Connolly has still got his funny bones' - The Evening Standard
