Russell Brand’s moving tribute to Billy Connolly interrupted by dog licking ‘sexual organs’

Russell Brand’s touching tribute to Billy Connolly in tonight’s ITV special celebrating the 78-year-old was awkwardly interrupted by a god licking his ‘sexual organs’.

Tonight will mark Billy’s final ever ‘performance’ after the comic retired from stand up in 2018 following his 2013 Parkinson’s Disease diagnosis.


Some of Billy’s close pals and celebrity guests including Sir Elton John and Sheridan Smith sobbed as they opened up about their love for the national treasure.

Russell, however, got a rude awakening when his German Shepherd, Bear, came bursting into the room to clean himself up.

Halfway through explaining Billy’s comical genius, Russell was forced to stop his heart-felt monologue.

‘Excuse me, my dog’s come with me,’ he chuckled to the camera. ’It’s not one of those dogs that wears a special vest for friendship and companionship but he does basically perform that emotional function.
‘Forgive the problems that he is providing but I do feel Billy would somewhat approve, particularly of what he’s doing right now. There you go, honouring the subject by licking his own genitals.’

He laughed: ‘What better tribute for Billy Connolly than a literal shaggy dog licking his own sexual organs.’

Watching a clip of the moment from his home, Billy giggled: ‘That’s brilliant.’

Although, the 78-year-old had a woeful experience with his own dog too.

‘My dog ate my hearing aid this morning – $6,000,’ he told the camera.

During the documentary, Billy opens up about his battle with Parkinson’s, saying it will eventually ‘end him’.

‘It was obvious from my movement, that I wasn’t who I used to be. And so I had to explain it.. just to say that I am not defined by it,’ he said.  ‘It’s got me and it will get me and it will end me but that’s OK with me.

‘I started low and I ended high. Just staying up there, until it is time to stop, seems a natural and good thing to do. It is a good thing to be proud of, I wanted to be a funnyman and I got it.’

Looking down the camera, he added: ‘It’s been a pleasure talking to you all those years. From the beginning when I was a folkie, right through, I couldn’t have done anything without you. You have been magnificent.’
