Sir Billy Connolly recently announced that he was officially stepping back from live stand-up performance. To mark this major moment in comedy history, ITV have announced a new one-hour documentary to air later this year.
The special features Billy’s greatest stand-up moments, unseen performance footage and exclusive chats with some of Billy’s biggest famous fans.
The celebrity features Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, Sir Lenny Henry, Dustin Hoffman, Russell Brand (including a scene-stealing appearance from his dog), Whoopi Goldberg, Aisling Bea and Sheridan Smith. There are also unique new insights from the woman who knows Billy best - his wife and soulmate, Pamela Stephenson.
His A-list fans will share their memories of Billy, send him personal messages and pick their all-time highlights from his glorious comedy catalogue. The man himself will react to their choices and reveal his own favourites.
Billy Connolly: It’s Been A Pleasure... will air later this year on ITV.
