Rambling Man Summary

Rambling Man: My Life on the Road by Billy Connolly

Pre-order the hilarious new book from the nation's favourite comedian, Billy Connolly

Being a Rambling Man was what I always wanted to be, to live the way I damn well pleased.
I've met the weirdest and most wonderful people who walk the Earth, seen the most bizarre and the most fantastic sights - and I've rarely come across something I couldn't get a laugh at. I don't think I've ever had a bad trip. Well, apart from in the 1970s, but that's a whole other story . . .

When Billy set out from Glasgow as a young man he never looked back. He played his banjo on boats and trains, under trees, and on top of famous monuments. He danced naked in snow, wind and fire. He slept in bus stations, under bridges and on strangers' floors. He travelled by foot, bike, ship, plane, sleigh - even piggy-backed - to get to his next destination.

Billy has wandered to every corner of the earth and believes that being a Rambling Man is about more than just travelling - it's a state of mind. Rambling Men and Women are free spirits who live on their wits, are interested in people and endlessly curious about the world. They love to play music, make art or tell stories along the way but, above all, they have a longing in their heart for the open road.

In his joyful new book, Billy explores this philosophy and how it has shaped him, and he shares hilarious new stories from his lifetime on the road. From riding his trike down America's famous Route 66, building an igloo on an iceberg in the Arctic, playing elephant polo (badly) in Nepal and crashing his motorbike (more than once), to eating witchetty grubs in Australia, being serenaded by a penguin in New Zealand, and swapping secrets in a traditional Sweat Lodge ritual in Canada, Rambling Man is a truly global adventure with the greatest possible travel companion.

Rambling Man Reviews

This is everything a celebrity autobiography should be and more. * Scottish Mail on Sunday, WINDSWEPT & INTERESTING *
A read that entirely fits the personality of the extreme personality who wrote it, Connolly's raucous run through his life is as furious, funny and foul-mouthed as you'd expect. His stand-up knack for easy storytelling shines through. * Sunday Times, TALL TALES AND WEE STORIES *
One of stand-up's great naturals. No one told a story better. * Guardian, TALL TALES AND WEE STORIES *
An ode to the restless soul, chronicling Billy's lifetime wanderings in his usual charming, irreverent and hilarious style. * The Guardian, RAMBLING MAN *
