News: Billy Connolly Stand Up Show To Be Screened In Cinemas

The legendary Billy Connolly will come to cinemas nationwide on Thursday 10th October as he presents a show from the Australian leg of his last ever stand-up tour, recorded in 2015.

Screening as a special one-night-only event, The Sex Life of Bandages will also see Connolly muse upon his career, life and legacy in a deeply personal and never-before-seen interview filmed exclusively for cinema audiences.  

The whip-smart show was praised as ‘beautifully funny’ by The Guardian, whilst the Daily Telegraph referenced Connolly’s ability to ‘… warm us, cheer us, tickle us…’. It is a riotous journey filled with outrageous tales and blistering observations of everyday absurdities.

Billy Connolly 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!”

A renaissance man in every sense of the word, Billy Connolly is not only one of the world’s greatest stand-up comedians, but also a musician, artist, and actor. In 2017 he was knighted for his services to both entertainment and charity.  

Connolly has toured worldwide continuously for 50 years, performing to an audience of over 10 million. The Sex Life of Bandages is a big screen tribute to an iconic funny-man whose sharp wit and anarchic storytelling is still as hilarious as ever.  

Tickets are available from Wednesday 17 July here.
