Billy Connolly has revealed he “may do another gig” in the future but is not quite ready yet.

The 76-year-old comedian, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2013, made the comments during an interview with the BBC.

The Big Yin from Glasgow, who hasn’t performed on stage since 2015, also opened up about having to deal with “new surprises” every month as a result of the disease.

He told the broadcaster: “I may do another gig. I don’t know. I haven’t cancelled that idea.

“But not right now. I’m not ready.

“I feel different, my mind works differently.

“I don’t now if I can do it with my mind in the state that it’s in.”

He added: “And I drool. This is a recent one. It’s another gorgeous side of Parkinson’s Disease.

“There’s a little surprise every month and this month’s surprise is drooling. It makes you so attractive to people I find.

“Women particularly. They say ‘I love a man with a shiny chin’”, he joked.

The comedian, who is still working on his TV shows, said he has “ to get used to all that and the way my legs move, the way I walk, the way I stand, the way my arms move.

“I have to get more used to all that before I consider going on a state and performing.”

In a documentary released earlier this year, Billy said he felt his life with “slipping away” as he battled the incurable disease.

He said “I’m a damn sight nearer the end than I am the beginning.

“But it doesn’t frighten me, it’s an adventure and it is quite interesting to see myself slipping away.”
