EDITORS’ NOTES

In 1987, satirical Scotsman Billy Connolly was on his first world tour, during which this show at London’s Royal Albert Hall was recorded. But despite the storied surroundings, Connolly didn’t tone down his raw, riotous club act one bit. From the merciless mocking of his own culture to his gut-busting tales of bodily functions, he was, if anything, even more uncompromising and as outrageously uproarious as ever. The resourceful funnyman even proves that folk music can be funny with bits like “Learning the Banjo.”
