Musical Talent

Before his incredible success as one of the world's funniest and best loved comedians, Billy was in a folk band called The Humblebums with friends Tam Harvey and Gerry Rafferty, the latter of which went on to find success on his own in the world of music.  However, Connolly has described his own singing voice as 'like a goose farting in the fog'.  Maybe it is a good thing he went into the world of stand-up instead.......

Ill Health

In 2013 Billy was diagnosed with both prostate cancer and parkinson's disease on the same day.  The prostate was removed in October and he received the all clear, and the Parkinson's is reportedly a mild, slow moving form of the disease.

Horrible History

Billy's maternal ancestor, John O'Brien, was a soldier in the British Army stationed in Cawnpore during the Indian Rebellion.  At this fortified town, many women and children were massacred, the perpetrators were dealt with brutally by the British rulers.  He was then shipped to nearby Lucknow, where a siege of the English had been underway for three months.
