Billy Connolly Tells Just About the Funniest Story Ever

11042 ratings | 4656323 views
One of the most perfect moments, and biggest laughs, in the history of TV talk shows. From 'The Late Late Show with Tom Snyder' in 1998. More info below - ________________________ Back story, for those who are interested: I was a fan of Tom Snyder all through his stint on 'The Late Late Show' on CBS in the 1990s, and even back when he did NBC's 'Tomorrow Show' in the 1970s. The context here is that, during all that stretch of time (and even today), flatulence was a subject well beyond the bounds of acceptable taste for mainstream American TV, even in late night -- most shows and most performers, even lowbrow types, are too leery of being pegged as grossly sophomoric to ever touch it. Notice that at no time does Tom ever let the word 'fart' slip his own lips -- this is not normally something you'd see brought up on TV at all, let alone with the bluntness in play in this clip. But Tom did have a soft spot for fart humor, and he was unusual in having the self-confidence and trust in his audience to let it be revealed now and then. Very occasionally, he might make an amused reference to backstage happenings involving a crew member 'breaking wind' -- or to his appreciation for the now-little-remembered Belle-Epoque 'fartiste' Le Petomane -- but he always did so with the extra dollop of caution you might affect when touching on such a hugely unclassy subject. Then on this particular night, along came Billy Connolly, and with his total lack of inhibition, he blew the lid off this guilty pleasure. Tom's stage manager was a guy named Mark Kennedy, who is the dude you can hear cracking up in the background. His off-camera cackles and interactions with Tom were part of the show's charm. As Billy strolls so offhandedly and fearlessly into this subject, you can see Tom sharing sideways glances again and again with Kennedy -- as if acknowledging that this is something they've always had fun joking about crudely between themselves, but never with such disregard for decorum on network TV. In the course of these magical three minutes, Tom winds up momentarily casting aside his concern for decorum (Ah, the hell with it, this is just too much fun!) -- and by the end, he's telling a fart joke himself, and leaning forward in anticipation as Billy tells the coronation story. .

I want to watch this guy perform before he croaks (No Offense). My biggest regret was not watching George Carlin perform before he died. I will not make the same mistake again with this guy! He should be in everyone's top 5 of all time list.

I impressed the fuck out of a 10 year old boy i was looking after by farting as i walked the lenght of my kitchen. He pleaded with me to teach him how to do it. I didnt have the heart to tell him an old bowel was all that was required😂

Very few things can beat the humor and the laugh of a Scot..... but you know the stage manager was leaning forward in anticipation of the punch line and exploded with such addicting laughter.... absolutely priceless!

Billy Connolly just has this way of speaking, that anything he's saying sounds like the most important thing in the room, even if it's farts, I still reckon this is one of the most joyful videos on the internet, if ever I need a smile, I come here.

The way I heard the horse joke was, the Queen was hosting George W Bush, and they were in her horse drawn carriage. Suddenly, one horse let out a ripsnorter of a fart. The Queen said, "I'm terribly sorry, Mr. President. There are certain things even a queen can't help". "Please don't give it a second thought, Your Majesty", replied Bush. "If you hadn't said anything, I would have sworn it was the horse ".

One time in high school we were taking an english test and one of my Friends was Falling asleep, a few minutes later it's dead silent when suddenly he rips one as he crosses the threshold to being completely sleep, pretty much everyone in the classroom bursts out laughing because of the perfect timing and he ended up being woken up by the fart wondering why everyone was laughing.

This old couple are sitting in Church together, when Mavis leans over and whispers to Fred "Honey, I just let out one of those "silent-but-violent" farts. What should I do?" Fred replies "First thing you should do is change the battery in your hearing aid"

Here's another funny Billy Connolly inspired joke: These two guys are having a beer discussing the end of the world. Bill says "Hey Fred, if the world was going to end in 24 hours, what would you do?" Fred replies "I'd shag everything that moved. What about you?" Bill, eyebrows raised, responds "I'll be standing absolutely still!"
