Billy Connolly's stand-up show to hit cinemas

One-off event includes a new interview

Sir Billy Connolly’s final stand-up tour is to be screened in cinemas for one night only.

The Sex Life of Bandages was filmed during the Australian leg of his tour in 2015, a year before retiring after his diagnosis with Parkinson's disease.

As well as his live comedy, the film also includes a ‘deeply personal’ interview filmed exclusively for cinema audiences.  

Sir Billy  said: ‘Considering I tend to die in all my Hollywood movies, I’m delighted to appear in cinemas and be alive and well at the end.’

The film will be shown across the country on the night of October 10, with tickets going on sale this  Wednesday here

This is the show that celebrated the launch of Nick Helm's album in 2016, and has previously been unseen by anyone who was not in the O2 Forum Kentish Town that night.

With typical hyperbole, the show is described thusly: 'Under-rehearsed, under-prepared and under pressure, Nick and his band somehow managed to pull together the greatest show in the last 27 years of living memory. That show went down as a thing of legend, often spoken about by weary travellers around campfires, but thought to have been lost to the sands of time forever.'
