BILLY ON THE BOIL
In this travelogue of sorts, echoes of that Connolly (left with Jana Wendt) are still there, but so is the evidence of the Parkinson’s disease which has slowed him down physically, while sharpening his appreciation for life and his inspiring commitment to sucking ever last bit of marrow from its bones. He sums it up best: “If you volunteer to take life seriously, it’s going to get you. You can either break down and complain about how miserable life is, or you can have a go at it and survive.” He then follows these wise words with a joke about his bucket list plan to see out his final days sheep shagging while injecting heroin and it’s perfection. NEWS this TV series is set to be adapted for Broadway will be music to the ears of fans who crushed on its sassy storylines set in the country music industry and cast performances, especially Connie Britton, Hayden Pannetierre (both pictured) and Aussie actor Clare Bowen.
