Product Description

Finally, the wait is over. Billy Connolly, the King of Comedy, returns in his first brand new stand up DVD for three years. As funny, topical and downright brilliant as ever, Billy Connolly Live in London 2010 is the master at his best.

From raging about Britain’s political elite to reporting about the oddities of America, Live in London 2010 takes the audience on a hilarious series of anecdotes, digressions and yarns. Filmed this year during 20 sell-out nights at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, this is the show that caused a ticket website to crash from the demand when it first went on sale.

Clearly, Billy Connolly is still the nation’s favourite and now you can enjoy for yourself with this unmissable show. Whether you’ve been a fan since the beginning or you want to see the very best of British comedy right now, you won’t be disappointed. And if you are looking for a Christmas present guaranteed to go down a storm, with Billy Connolly Live in London 2010, you’ve definitely found it.

“Classic Connolly….a master raconteur….still in the front ranks of comedy.’ The Guardian

“Fantastic…more than any other comic, The Big Yin has caught the mood of the times.” The Telegraph

“Relish being in the hands of a master.” The Times

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny, but your sides stay intact. 7 Dec 2010
By Flickering Ember TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
As a long-standing fan who has been reduced to tears of laughter to the point of near death by the man, I was a bit disappointed by this latest release. I didn't read any reviews for it, and simply bought it as a fan with high expectations. I admit, there were times when I laughed...a lot...but I wouldn't call this material his best. The highlight for me is the bit about dwarves.

As an aside, the DVD itself has no special features, so this also felt like a bit of let-down, even more so since reading from another reviewer who was actually there when it was being filmed and said that there was a whole bit cut out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than I expected. 29 Nov 2010
Format:DVD
I almost didn't buy this because of the negative reviews elsewhere on this page and i'm a big fan of BC. I'm glad i bit the bullet and grabbed a copy, it is much better than some of these people would have you believe, it is funny all the way through, there is tons of new material and it IS worth buying.
Billy Connolly is still funny, his observational style is still way above anyone elses version and he knocks the new breed of stand ups into a cocked hat! If you think that Michael McIntyre is funny then you know nothing about comedy and you shouldn't buy this, it's real, it's genuinly funny, it's everything good stand up should be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't listen to the other (1 Star) reviews 16 Nov 2010
Format:DVD
I went to see Billy Connolly's Hammersmith show earlier this year and after watching his poorest DVD to date a few years ago (Live in New York) there's no doubting that in his last 2 Live DVD's (Including this one) he is back to his best.
After reading the two 1 star reviews given for this DVD so far I'm amazed that the two reviewers cannot see the humour in this DVD. When I watched this show all I saw were the crowd in fits of laughter and loving every minute of the show. So to suggest that the laughter is canned, etc is ridiculous. This show was a complete sell out and I've heard more laughter at this show than any other comedy sahow I've been to (Including Peter Kay, Lee Evans, Frankie Boyle, etc).

With regards to Billy laughing, anyone who knows anything about the Big Yin and his comedy show's will know that he is renown for changing a lot of his act each night. Some things he says on stage come fresh from his memory and he is laughing at the thought of the story, or the story itself.
I only managed to go to one of his show's this year but in 2007 I went to watch him twice and was surprised that at least 40-50% of his act in the 2nd show was absolutely nothing to do with the first show, and I've read and been told that he does this during every tour.

Of course Billy has had better DVD's than this one, but then that is not surprising when he is nearing the end of his stand up career, the age of the Man and the fact that over the years he has produced some of the best stand up by any comedian. He himself is a very hard act to follow. But those giving this DVD any less than 5 stars have either lost their sense of humour completely or were watching the wrong DVD.

This is not Billy at his absolute best (I believe his peak was about 10 years ago) but this DVD is still a lot better than pretty much any other stand up DVD you'll buy this Christmas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth watching 6 Dec 2010
By Divided
Format:DVD
I was actually at this recording of this DVD, unfortunately there's quite a bit cut out of the performance which was probably the best comedy show I have ever been to. The DVD is excellent nonetheless and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Billy. It's a shame they cut some of the material out as it actually made sense on the night whereas if you are watching for the first time some of it doesn't seem to tie together well, as many of you know Billy frequently goes off on a tangent whilst telling a story and it would've been nice to include all the stories and tangents. Try not to let it put you off tho, it was an excellent night and it's an excellent DVD!

Some of his best life episodes I have ever seen or heard — fantasy or truth the line is blurred and no amount of glue or political correctness will fix it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A top show 6 May 2014
By Robert
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A great show from the master comedian. I was lucky enough to see the tour from which this came. A slow build but the second half made me hurt with laughter. Waited for the right price. Great seller

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed really.. 6 April 2012
By Marc K,
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Huge fan of Bill, and I wanted to show this to my girlfriend who had never seen any of his stuff before, but this was not at all the laugh-your-"behind"-off experience I had told her about. Some jokes are just recycled as well from previous shows.
It's more of a grin-and-chuckle experience; instead of the laugh-out-loud experience you would expect.
For any fan a must-have of course, but if you are only planning on having one or two of his DVDs, then I would definitely buy another one.
