Con­nolly’s trunk call

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

DUR­ING film­ing of his au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal doc­u­men­tary, Made in Scot­land, which aired last week on BBC, Sir Billy Con­nolly re­fu­elled with a kosher salt beef sand­wich from Mark’s Deli in Glas­gow.

Deli owner Mark Co­hen (above) ap­pears in the film, recre­at­ing an episode from the co­me­dian’s child­hood — of­ten re­called in his stage rou­tines — which re­volve around a pair of knit­ted woollen swim­ming trunks. “They needed some out­door swim­mers,” ex­plained Mr Co­hen, “and me and my friends swim out­doors in the cold Scot­tish lochs. They had some pro­fes­sional knit­ters knit us trunks to re-en­act the scene.”
