Product description

Review

A read that entirely fits the personality of the extreme personality who wrote it, Connolly's raucous run through his life is as furious, funny and foul-mouthed as you'd expect. His stand-up knack for easy storytelling shines through ― Sunday Times

Wild and whirling . . . it reads like a talking bookObserver

Connolly's writing is so much like his speech
you can hear him as you read.Evening Standard

A glorious memoir full of insights into the funnyman's life and career. Hilarious.Prima

The Big Yin BibleThe List

A very humorous readDaily Stock Dish

One of stand-up's great naturals. No one told a story better.

Guardian

Raucous and side-splittingYours

Wry, sometimes sacrilegious, often absurd and outrageously funnyThe Senior AU

Gloriously, unashamedly peppered with swearing, bodily functions and drunken behaviour . . .
you will laugh, guffaw and snort your way through this remarkable bookThe Wee Review

Bracingly sweary, robustly rude and brilliantly original, this is essential reading for fans of the Big Yin. ― Daily Mail

This book brings together
the best of his stories...and offers something of a potted history of a life of spontaneous performance on stage. ― Irish Independent Review

Book Description

Outrageously funny story-telling from the nation's favourite comedian.

Tall Tales and Wee Stories brings together the 'Best of Billy Connolly'.

'One of stand-up's great naturals. No one told a story better.' Guardian
