Good evening and welcome to this, a very sad Parkinson Show with me, Michael Parkinson.
And it is my very sad duty on this, the Parkinson Show, with me, Michael Parkinson, to tell you that one of our very greatest living entertainers, - well, for the time being, anyway, living, that is - Sir Billy Connolly, a man who we are proud to say we brought to the world back in the days of the early Parkinson Shows with me, Michael Parkinson, has arse cancer. Now, I know, I know, that many will say, in my view unkindly, that this is what happens when you have your head stuck up your own arse for most of your life, blethering on about your wife and your girrrls, and your friendship with the Duke and Duchess of Pork, and your estate in Scotland and all your luvvie friends but that would be, as I say, unkind, most unkind.
I often get asked: what's my favourite interview? Tough question.
But I would like to say, perhaps to people suffering from prostrate cancer that if they want to leave their loved ones more than happy memories they should consider the SunLife over fifties plan. You can't get cover cheaper than this. So, Billy, if you think you might survive the qualifying period of two years then I recommend this plan to you. You get a welcome gift for signing-up for this shit and you also get a free Parker pen, just for enquiring.
terms and conditions apply and you might lose every penny you pay in if that's what we decide.
