Bawdy Billy Connolly has been rrrolling his "rrr"s and delivering punch lines since the 1970s. This collection spans decades of his high-energy R-rated stories and mild PG comedy songs. Clearly a UK favorite, Connolly mines a rich vein of rowdy and raucous humor and shaggy dog tales delivered in an outraged and bemused brogue. Something of a unique voice, Connolly is regarded by some as a pioneer of new wave comedy. While his observational humor and storytelling are somewhat experimental, he is more solidly mainstream and far less ground-breaking than Lenny Bruce or other seminal comics. A fun listen, however, for the soccer-and-Guinness crowd or existing fans. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
