Billy Connolly is a legend in the world of comedy, and his 2016 "High Horse Tour Live" proves that he is still at the top of his game. The movie captures one of his performances on tour, and showcases his signature blend of irreverent humor, insightful commentary, and hilarious storytelling. From the opening moments of the show, it's clear that Connolly is in fine form. He strides onto the stage with his trademark swagger, and launches into a raucous and hilarious routine that has the audience in stitches. He wastes no time in tackling a range of topics, from sex and aging to politics and religion, and always manages to find the funny side of even the most serious issues.

One of the highlights of the show is Connolly's mastery of the art of the callback. He weaves multiple threads of his jokes together, tying them up neatly in a way that leaves the audience gasping for air. His energy and charisma are infectious, and it's impossible not to get caught up in the pure joy of his performance.

But while Connolly's comedy is certainly entertaining, it's also much more than mere silliness. He has a gift for using humor to explore the human experience, touching on deep themes like love, loss, and the passage of time. He has a profound empathy for his fellow humans, and his ability to connect with his audience is truly remarkable.

Throughout the show, Connolly keeps his material fresh and surprising. He is constantly riffing on his surroundings, picking up on the smallest details and spinning them into hilarious material. His observations are razor-sharp, and he has a talent for making the mundane seem extraordinary.

One of the other defining features of "High Horse Tour Live" is Connolly's use of storytelling. He has always been a master storyteller, and in this show he weaves together a series of anecdotes and jokes that are both hilarious and deeply moving. His stories range from the absurd to the poignant, and each one is a miniature masterpiece in its own right.

But what really sets Connolly apart is his fearlessness. He is not afraid to tackle controversial topics, to say things that might be uncomfortable or unpopular. His comedy is never mean-spirited, but it is always honest and unflinching. He dares to be provocative, and in doing so he forces us to confront our own assumptions and biases.

At its heart, "High Horse Tour Live" is a celebration of life, and of the human condition in all its messy, beautiful glory. Connolly is a master of his craft, and watching him perform is a true joy. This movie is a must-see for anyone who loves comedy, storytelling, or simply being human.
