Scottish actor and comedian. Originally an anarchic folk singer, Billy was too eccentric and outrageous with his humor to be acceptable on TV. When he appeared on "The Great Northern Welly Boot Show" at the Edinburgh Festival, August 1972, he established himself as an up-and-coming comic.
He aired his own show in 1976, the same year that he played in a BBC play, "The Elephant's Graveyard." Called "the big Yin," Connolly became one of Britain's leading comedians. He was showcased in the U.S. in a short-lived series. On the 3/08/1997 debut, he showed his versatility in "Deacon Brodie," a drama based on the true story of a notorious criminal.
