Sculpture description:
Bronze Portrait Life Sized Commissioned/Custom Bust of the Celebrity Billy Connolly Statue for sale or Commission Modelled in the dressing rooms of the Theatre Royal, Bath over 4 consecutive evenings, by Luke Shepherd with such Skill and Charm

1st edition purchased by John Reid Enterprises and 2nd owned by Billy.

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.

Billy Connolly CBE
