              THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'Coming from Glasgow, it's weird, I don't really tell jokes, like Irish jokes and all that. I tell wee stories. And some of them don't even have punchlines. But you'll get used to it as the night goes on, and on, and on, and on and on...'

Billy got away with it because he has always had the popular touch. His comedy spans generations and different social tribes in a way th
