Billy Connolly has confirmed that he won't perform live stand-up ever again
"It was lovely and it was lovely being good at it."
Legendary stand-up comedian Billy Connolly has said that he won't ever perform live stand-up comedy again.
Speaking recently to Sky News, the Scottish comedian discussed his life, his career, and living with Parkinson's disease.
He said: "I'm finished with stand-up - it was lovely and it was lovely being good at it. It was the first thing I was ever good at."
And although the 77-year-old has been vocal about his struggles with Parkinson's, he said that he refuses to let it define him.
"I'm always being asked to go to Parkinson's things and spend time with Parkinson's people, having lunch or something like that. And I don't approve of it.
"I don't think you should let Parkinson's define you and all your pals be Parkinson's people. I don't think it's particularly good for you. So I don't do it."
He continued: "I get upset. Because certain things go wrong, your brain goes adrift and affects your body, and so you walk differently, you walk like a drunk man sometimes. And you're frightened you'll be judged on it. And you shake sometimes.
"Sometimes you can't get your money into your wallet... your change, and, the waiter has to take it from you and put it in."
