The fast-paced Edinburgh comedian moved from one subject to another, from different angles, from a variety of tones and emphasis. I haven’t seen a comedian in such a long time who could race, pause, and change direction at the same time and still manage to pull it off while remaining wide-eyed focused and in thorough control, throughout. Billy has that unconditional energy on a grand scale. If I may also point out – he is the first Edinburgh comedian I’ve heard to pull off a Glasgow football-related line that made me think and laugh at the same time. That takes some beating. Billy is quick, boy is he quick. You get your money’s worth with him, that’s for sure for entertainment value. He’s animated and out in front where many daren’t go – both in the physical sense and in the material sense. A definite jaw-opener, which we need more of in comedy, if you ask me. Billy has everything I love in a comedian. Having Hicks and Carlin as some of my influences; I could relate to Billy’s style. He has that controlled anger, offloading his vent from a tightly-clutched fist-around-the-mic and delivering a punch packed with full-on, in-your-face meaning.
