Billy gets on his high horse

Comedy great, Billy Connolly is heading to Newcastle on February 22 for a show at the Entertainment centre and we’re a little but excited.

Billy Connolly has enjoyed a longstanding career as one of the world’s best-loved comedians. His live shows have been enthralling audiences around the world for over three decades.

The Scottish comedian has been wowing Australian audiences with his live stand-up shows since 1978 and this time around he’s promising more of the same, but funnier.

Billy’s professional life started in the shipyards of Glasgow where he worked as a welder in the early 60s. He decided to give it away to pursue a career as a folk singer and banjo player in the Humblebums with Gerry Rafferty (later of Baker Street fame) and then as soloist. The jokes he told between songs eventually took over his act and he became a full time comedian. Already a big star in Scotland, he became a household name in the UK after appearing on “Parkinson” (1971) in the early 70s.

So get ready for the ride of the decade with this larger than life character on his High Horse Australian tour that stops in at Newcastle Entertainment Centre on February 22. Contact the venue for more information and to purchase tickets.
