Sir William Connolly, CBE (born 24 November 1942) is a Scottish stand-up comedian, musician, presenter, actor and artist. He is sometimes known by the Scots nickname “The Big Yin. In 1965, together with Tam Harvey, Connolly started a group called The Humblebums. At their first gig, Connolly reportedly introduced them both to the audience by saying, “My name’s Billy Connolly, and I’m humble. This is Tam Harvey, he’s a bum.” The band would later include Gerry Rafferty, who saw Connolly at a charity show in Paisley. Connolly has been married to his second wife, comedian and psychologist Pamela Stephenson, since 1989. He is father to five children: two from his first marriage, to Iris Pressagh, and three from his second.
