    Not a fan of the Billy I don t understand why getting overexcited with a Scottish accent is supposed to be funny He shouts all the time A good comic wouldn t have to do that.Anyway, he did Australia and it will come as no great surprise that Australians did him For The Chaser does Billy Connolly s World Tour of Iraq go here youtube watch v Ppfnu

    I love Billy Connolly and really enjoyed the TV series which the book covers I got this used rather than having bought it brand new but would have been disappointed if I had paid full price as basically this adds nothing new What you saw in the TV series is what is in this book It would be nice if they added some additional photos, comments etc If you want a picture book illustrating the series then this is it Nothing else to say really.

    I loved the television series but this book is wafer thin You could easily whip through this in one or two sittings I enjoyed reading it 20 years after the series but Billy could really have put in a lot information, historical and observational.
