Chic Murray was regarded by his entertainment industry peers as one of the true geniuses of comedy. His uniquely surreal and rambling observations attracted everyone from Spike Milligan to Sean Connery to Orson Welles. For Billy Connolly he remains the comedian’s comedian.
In this hour long celebration of Chic’s life and work, Hollywood actor and Murray fan Brian Cox introduces reminiscences, songs and sketches from the ‘tall droll’ himself, and tributes from Timothy Spall, John Sessions, Bill Paterson, Barry Cryer, and film composer Patrick Doyle, with Chic’s wife Maidie, his daughter Annabelle Meredith – and Billy Connolly himself.
