Billy Connolly: 'I hate reality TV'
Sun Jan 31 2010 10:49:44Comedy legend Billy Connolly has taken a swipe at reality TV.
The Scottish star said: "It bores me to distraction. I get tired of watching people who are not very good at something.
"It's like watching a really rotten footabll team as opposed to a really good football team."
The stand-up comic and actor, who has also starred in a series of television documentaries, was speaking at the final South Bank Show Awards in London.
"It's much better to watch somebody who is practiced at something and got good at it than it is to watch somebody fumbling around trying to look famous," the 67-year-old added.
