Video of the Week – Billy Connolly 1990 HBO Special

I truly want to thank Al Gore for inventing the Internet, because where else would I ever find this classic HBO Comedy Special starring Billy Connolly? It dates back to 1990 and it’s filled with enough swearing and fart jokes to last a lifetime.

I watched this for the first time with my Dad when I was 16, and it’s just as good now as it was then. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. If you don’t think the comedy is funny, you can at least laugh at the hairdos.


  1. I typed in “feather boa pizza hut dad” into google and stumbled across this site. Frankly I was disappointed as there is not a boa in sight. Thanks for the link to sage. I would link your site but you’d offend half of my clients and the other half have failing vision. Twitter sucks, use facebook!

    Hi Eric-
    I have this video on a beat-up old vhs and have been trying to find a digital copy before my tape is no longer watchable (practically there). Could we make arrangements for me to get a digital copy of the entire ideo? I would be willing to pay a reasonable amount for your time to get in a format to send to me. 🙂 Please let me know. Thanks!

    @Diane I don’t have a digital copy of this video… I just found these parts of it on youtube and posted them on my blog. Now that YouTube has taken down the videos I’m not sure how to get a hold of another copy. I wore out my VHS copy years ago. Sorry I can’t be more help.
