    Hope he can still make me laugh like he used to, not had a proper side splitter for quite a while!
    Wonder if he's got Parkinson's because he was on Michaels show so often?

  9. Used to like him when he started - then he started putting in the F word in every sentence - someone should tell these comedians that swearing does not make an average joke funnier.

    I noticed that, but that's because I go back to his early days too.

    Billy's always sworn, it's just the way he talks and I've never found it offensive, quite the opposite, the only time he had to tone it down was in his early days on the BBC
     
  13. I like the stuff he has done recently, especially Route 66 and some of the other programmes, shows he has alternative things too!

  15. I saw Billy a couple of times in the mid 80s. Brilliant. Couldn't stop laughing. I hope he still has the gift of his verbal delivery and not lost it to Parkinson.
