Billy Connolly – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ah’m off(sky) tae see the Big Yin the night wi’ ma fambly. This has become somewhat of a tradition. My mother loves reminding me of the show they attended when she was 8 and a half months pregnant with me, and went into a false labour from laughing. All of this laughter is in spite of herself, though – she spends the entire performance (or video, or album) shaking her head and saying things like “he’s horrible!” or “how crude!” while wiping away tears. In essence, trying to talk herself out of any enjoyment at all, which – if you think about it – is about as Scottish as you can get.
