for any other comedian, this set would have scored 5 stars. but this is billy connolly, probably the best comedian britian has produced, who has set the bar with many of his previous releases. this new one is not as good as some of his best earlier work (an audience with, bites yer bum etc) - but it is still a damn good show. in fact, it is probably the best he has done in about 10 years (at least judging from what's availiable as official videos). when I picked up australia 99 I thought his career was over, but I regained faith after dublin 2002 and new york 2005, and this new one is much much better than any of the previous two.
his style has changed somewhat over the years, but what do you expect as the man gets older?
many classic moments here; the bit about his wife and the house as well as the bit about "the worst pain known to man" are truly classic
