HAILED as one of the UK’s most influential comedian of all time, the legendary Billy Connolly will come to cinemas nationwide on Thursday, October 10 as he presents a show from the Australian leg of his last ever stand-up tour, recorded in 2015.

Screening as a special one-night-only event, The Sex Life of Bandages will also see Connolly muse upon his career, life and legacy in a deeply personal and never-before-seen interview filmed exclusively for cinema audiences.

Prior to retiring in 2016 following his diagnosis with Parkinson’s Disease, Connolly toured worldwide continuously for 50 years, performing to an audience of over 10 million.

The Sex Life of Bandages is a big screen tribute to an iconic funny-man whose sharp wit and anarchic storytelling is still as hilarious as ever. Tickets are available now from billyincinemas.com
