Release Title: Billy Connolly Live Was It Something I Said (A UKB-KvCD By BINGOWINGZ)
Release Date: 19 Nov 2007
RunTime: 1 Hour 54 Minutes
Genre: Comedy / Stand Up
Billy Connolly is the best stand up in the country, and there are few informed comedy critics who'd disagree. He's not always hilarious but he is always engaging and even when he's not making you cry with laughter, he can take you into his world and entertain you.
This is an improvement on the disappointing 'Live In New York' and for the most part, it's just brilliant stuff. Connolly obviously has a basic structure for each show, but unlike Eddie Izzard with his faux ad-libbing, Connolly genuinely gives flight to thoughts that sometimes take him so far off track, he has to ask the audience to put him back on the right path.
I love that this was filmed in Adelaide, a lovely little Australian city often overlooked by the hustle bustle of Melbourne or Sydney. Billy loves the country too and this comes over well on this release.
A few bits fall flat: the drawn out description of the musical he'd like to make never really works, and at other times he appears more angry then funny, but Billy's admittedly an odd character and he's said before that the stage is like therapy to him; the place he can vent, and I don't mind at all that he does so.
A great gig by a truly gifted man. Decent running time too, at just under two hours. Watch the King show you how it's done.

If you wish to View on your PC then use a media player called VLC
which supports Cue and Bin format movies, but be warned, this and
Windows Media Player have been known to show incorrect movie runtimes
i.e. 37 minutes when the movie is actually 2 hours long.
You can download the VLC media player from www.videolan.org but it's NOT
recommended to view KVCD's on your PC as they're specifically encoded
to view on your standalone DVD Player and TV. If you are planning on
watching on your PC then please don't moan about quality as you have
been warned. If you wanted to watch on you PC then you've downloaded
the wrong release, You want a DIVX or XVID version so I'll say it
one more time, don't moan about quality as you have been warned.
To burn to disc using Nero just right click on the cue file which
will be the smallest of the 2 then choose Open With and browse to
your Nero.exe (possibly just called Nero) file. (Located in Program
Files / Ahead / Nero folder) Ensure the *Always use the selected
program to open this type of file* box is ticked, this way next time
all you have to do is double click the cue file and the burning
interface will open, now choose which speed you would like to burn
your disc at. It's recommended to burn at no more than 8x, Or 10x if you
burn at a faster speed this may impair the quality and make the
video pixelated.[/b] [Info By FFCcottage]
