    I see Billy Connolly has prostate cancer and been diagnosed with Parkinsons...really like his humour especially in his early days, this joke being my favourite...

    That was his first appearance on Parkinson's show and it was something of a big break for him. With this in mind his agent had warned him not to do that particular joke.

    Fortunately he ignored him and the rest is history, but watch his eyes after he delivers the punchline. He has a couple of quick glances at Parky to judge his reaction before relaxing.
