William "Billy" Connolly, CBE is a Scottish comedian, musician, presenter and actor. He is sometimes known, especially in his native Scotland, by the nickname "The Big Yin". His first trade, in the early 1960s, was as a welder in the Glasgow shipyards, but he gave it up towards the end of the decade to pursue a career as a folk singer in the Humblebums and subsequently as a soloist. In the early 1970s, he made the transition from folk-singer with a comedic persona to full-fledged comedian. Connolly is also an actor and has appeared in such films as Water; Indecent Proposal; Muppet Treasure Island; Mrs. Brown, for which he was nominated for a BAFTA; The Boondock Saints; The Man Who Sued God; The Last Samurai; Timeline; Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events; Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties; Open Season; The X-Files: I Want to Believe; and Open Season 2. Connolly reprised his role as Noah "Il Duce" MacManus in The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. Connolly appears as the King of Lilliput in the 2010 remake of Gulliver's Travels. Connolly provides the voice for King Fergus in Pixar's Brave.
