Billy Connolly, known for his long, messy hair, "goatee" beard and lots of bad language in his stand-up show, was born and brought up in Glasgow, Scotland. He left school to work in the shipyards where he became a welder. He developed an interest in folk music, eventually becoming an accomplished banjo player and a member of the band "Humblebums" with Gerry Rafferty (later of "Baker Street" fame). The jokes he told between songs eventually took over his act and he became a full-time Comedian. He is by some considerable margin UK`s Top Comedian.

Although it seemed a daunting project to commission a sculpture on the internet with a tight deadline, Plamen Dimitrov in Bulgaria made it as easy as possible for me in Brazil by producing a series of little clay sketches after each email and sending photos it seemed by return.
