Billy Connolly was, in the 1970s, a sort of Scottish Lenny Bruce, who, with devastating humour, sliced through the hypocrisies he perceived.

This 1976 documentary follows the singer-comic during his 1975 Irish tour. Made in a cinema verité fashion, the performer appears to be completely unaware of the presence of the camera in his off-stage and backstage moments.

'An absorbing portrait of Britain's most influential comic as he teeters on the brink of mega stardom. Big Banana Feet is a great rediscovery' - Brian Logan, Guardian
