The Best of Its Kind
31 July 2018 | by c-wiseSee all my reviews

This is Billy at his best. It is so hilarious. The celeb audience literally cry with laughter. The show is actually about 90 minutes long. Another reviewer seems to have reviewed the edited 60 minute version which misses out a lot of stuff including the audience's questions. Billy was wild, uninhibited, observant and an excellent physical comedian in his prime, but it's his comedic mind that shines through. Starting stories, going off track and coming back to them later with hilarious effect. The guy is a genius. A must watch.
