With over 800,000 copies of the hardcover sold in Britain alone, Billy is the biography of the manic Scottish comedian Billy Connolly, written by his wife Pamela Stephenson. In an account by turns heartbreaking and hilarious, and evoking the poignancy of the Ireland of Angela’s Ashes in its descriptions of Scottish tenement life, Stephenson tells how hard luck beginnings and an idiosyncratic talent made Billy the man he is. Filled with riotous anecdotes from Billy’s shows, stories about his films as well as harrowing tales from his childhood, this is the book Connolly’s adoring public has been waiting for.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kezia | 2/12/2014

    " I really enjoyed reading about Billy's life (I had no idea he had a difficult childhood), but I didn't think it was well written at all, hence why I gave it a 3 star rating instead of a 4 star. Billy has lead an interesting life and I did buy the sequel because I wanted to know more, but Pamela Stephenson is not a writer... And it shows! Still, I would recommend it to Billy fans. "

    " Sure you know Billy. If you're a fan you'll enjoy it. Otherwise, maybe just an interesting read about a normal guy who's achieved extraordinary things in his life. "

    " A remarkable, warts-and-all biography of one of the world's most amazing comedians and actors. Filled with anecdotes, jokes, and incredible insights, I come away with the thought that he is, in his way, the reincarnation of Will Rogers (being able to improvise his performances with a lightning-quick mind), and the desire that I might someday meet him and hope that I could keep up with him while enjoying a roll and square sliced sausage and a cup of tea. "

    " Had me in stitches several times. A very entertaining, laugh-out-loud book. "
