I saw this televised as a series here in New Zealand and was in the audience at one of the live shows (Christchurch.)
The live excerpts are typical of those you usually see of Connolly: Very, very funny, but you generally lose a lot "in the edit."
The man's stagecraft is superb, as he meanders around several stories, but never loses the original thread, often returning to deliver the punchline as long as fifteen minutes away from the original set-up without ever "losing his place."
Television tends to prefer neat little soundbytes and Conolly's frequent use of expletives must often leave the editor with very little to work with!
The fact that he bothered to perform to some very small audiences in remote locations (International music acts take note!) does get airtime here, but most enjoyment can be derived by the unique travel guide he presents in this series.
He never relies on cheap laughs during these informative excursions and always shows the utmost respect for the people and places he visits.
As an ex-pat British man living in New Zealand myself, I learned quite a few things from Billy's wandering around.
If you want to see something other than the usual "Lonely Planet" style backpackers guide to this beautiful country and its proud inhabitants, with the added bonus of some ageless, ribald, Scottish humour - this is thoroughly recommended.
The simple message behind the "Too Old to Die Young" tour this series is based around is "Grow old but never grow up" and the genuine, childlike, enthusiasm he displays toward his subject matter, as he tours the country on his custom trike seems to suggest that Billy Connolly continues to live by this edict. Thankfully!
