The Review Show With Billy Connolly

11:00pm Friday 4 January on BBC TWO

He may be 70 years old, but there is no mellowing the Big Yin – otherwise known as Billy Connolly – as Kirsty Wark finds out in this Review Show Special.

She caught up with Glasgow’s most famous son to discuss his latest acting role in Dustin Hoffman’s directorial debut Quartet.

The ever-candid Connolly also talks about his troubled relationship with his father and his hedonistic younger days. And with an imminent role in the Hobbit, there are some unexpected views on Tolkien fans, and Billy gives Kirsty a rare insight into his acting techniques, which include flirting with Dame Judi Dench.
