Billy Connolly Video - with Sculptor Luke Shepherd

Recently uncovered footage of the making of the bust of Billy Connolly by sculptor Luke Shepherd. in 1988 Luke Shepherd modelled Billy Connolly's bust in the dressing roms of the Theatre Royal, Bath, over 4 consecutive evenings.

1st edition purchased by John Reid Enterprises and 2nd owned by Billy.

Billy Connolly, known for his long, messy hair, ‘goatee’ beard and lots of bad language in his stand-up show, was born and brought up in Glasgow, Scotland. He left school to work in the shipyards where he became a welder. He developed an interest in folk music, eventually becoming an accomplished banjo player and a member of the band ‘Humblebums’ with Gerry Rafferty (later of ‘Baker Street’ fame). The jokes he told between songs eventually took over his act and he became a full-time comedian. He is by some considerable margin UK’s top comedian.

"The Big Yin put me at ease right from the start. His eccentric and insightful chatter was far too interesting, which made concentrating on the work at hand all the more difficult." states the artist.
