Billy Connolly The Sex Life of Bandages

Hailed as the UKs most influential comedian of all time, Legendary Scot Billy Connolly was filmed during his brilliant final stand up tour and it is coming to The Gateway. Recorded in 2015 during the Australian leg, this whip smart routine is a riotous journey filled with outrageous tales and blistering observations of everyday absurdities. Screening as a special one-night only event, Connolly will also muse upon his career, life and legacy in a deeply personal interview filmed exclusively for cinema audiences.

Prior to retiring in 2016 following his diagnosis with Parkinson's Disease, Billy 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.
